Cab-Link FAQ

I have two speakers with different impedances, can I use the Cab-Link to merge them?

We recommend only using cabinets that have the same impedance rating in Ohms (Ω).

What type of cables should I use with the Cab-Link?

Always use heavy-gauge speaker cables with the Cab-Link. Keeping the cable lengths as short as possible (under 1.5m) will help optimize performance. Only the line output can be connected to with a standard guitar cable.

How do I know whether to use the series or parallel inputs?

Which input you use depends on the impedance ratings of your speaker cabinets and the amplifier. Use the chart on the top of the Cab-Link to determine whether to connect using the series or parallel amp input.

Can I use the line out to feed a third speaker?

No, this is a line-level output that is designed to feed another amplifier or an external device such as a preamp. It does not provide a hot enough signal level to drive a speaker.

Can I use the Cab-Link to connect two amp heads to one speaker cabinet?

The Cab-Link is designed solely to connect two speakers with one amp head. To connect two amp heads to one cabinet and switch between each amp, use the Headbone VT™.

Will the Cab-Link color the sound of my amplifier?

No, the Cab-Link provides a straight-wire passive connection, which won’t affect your tone.

Can I use the Cab-Link between an amp head and a single cabinet, so I can use the line output to feed an external device?

Yes, you can use the Cab-Link with just a single speaker cabinet, just ensure it is the same impedance as your amp head. For optimal connection, use the From Amp Parallel input and the Output to Speaker B in this scenario.
