I plan to use a Mackie 1400i amp to run my monitor setup. One channel would run 4 speakers @ 2 ohms while the other side would run just one speaker @ 8 ohms. The 4 speakers would be the front line monitors while the single would be a separate mix for the drummer. Does anyone know if running this amp with 2 different loads will cause any problems? Or does anyone have any suggestions for a different setup. I have 2 aux sends from my board and only 1 amp to use for now.
The amp is rated at 630 watts per channel with a 2 ohm load. If I run 4 speakers rated at 8 ohms each I get a total load of 2 ohms. Does this then mean that each speaker would be putting out 157.5 watts?
Please excuse me if my terminology is not correct but I think you get the idea of my question.
