    Hey guys,

    I'm new here at the forum, but i'm so excited. Just ordered the Lemmy bass cabs for my 1992 LEM amp, and i don't know, how much is the impedance of these cabs? Can you help me?

    Or any imformation about these cabs? Thank you!

    Man,I'm jealous!!! I got a VBA 400 and I love it, but I never tried Lemmy's amp. I guess the tone is brilliant!

    Yeah, I have VBA 400 heads, and a VBC 412 cab, as well as my older JCM 800 Bass Series cabs, but I don't have any of the Lemmy sig amps or cabs (which, now that I think of it is a GLARING hole in my collection, especially considering Lemmy IS the reason I play bass now!). I'm guessing that the cabs will be 16 ohms. Regardless, the head and cabs were made to go together, and it should have 4/8/16 ohm outputs, so whatever the cabs' impedances are, the head will be able to correctly match up with them.

    Cheers!

    I would exchange my Ampeg SVT-2 pro USA (I haven't used in months) for Lemmy's head. It would be very good deal for me! :applause:

    heh, thank you for your answer berth!

    i got them more than a year ago, they are 8 ohms!
    the 1979 has 4 15" eminence speakers, both 200w
    unfortunately the 12 cab is much louder than the 15, but no problem, i've ordered an alternative "power breake" from an other company. i get it next week, i'm so excited about the result :)



    here is a little picture about me and my lemmy stack
