Now I believe the 410 is 8 ohm, but even if it was 4ohm, wouldn't the pair of 210's be louder than the single 410?
If so...why? If not, then why not? Thanks!
If all things are equal, a 410 or two 210's would still be moving equal amounts of air with the same square inches of cone area. Both should be equally loud.
The difference would come into play when the two 210 cabinets are stacked as a vertical 410.
A vertical 410 will have better mids dispersion, better projection, and with less phase problems than the standard configured 410.
Plus, a vertical 410 will give the same height advantages of a larger/taller cabinet by getting the top driver up nearer your ears for better clarity.
Another advantage of working with two 210 cabinets, use one for small gigs/rehearsals, both when more volume and coverage is needed.
I've been gigging a vertical 410 set-up for some time now.
I wouldn't consider going back to a standard 410.
