80hm cab paired with w 4ohm cab
I have an Eden 210XLT rated at 8ohms. My amp only has a switch for 2/4 ohms.
What I want to know is how bad is it to run an 8ohm and 4ohm cabinet together. Even if they are the same exact cab with different impedance.
There is a 4ohm version of the 210XLT for sale. I want that cab because I can use it as a standalone cabinet for small shows and rehearsals.
I can't sell the cab I have now because it's in rough shape and and I will get next to nothing for it...AND it still sounds amazing.
I think I read that an 8ohm/4ohm combination results in 2.67 ohms. But would the 4ohm cabinet see more power resulting in a different sound?
I assume that you have a tube amp??
a 4Ω 2x10 paired with an 8Ω 2x10 is poor at best. The 4Ω cabinet will get twice the power level of the 8Ω cabinet. You resultant load will be 2.67Ω.
I am not familiar with your 210 cab ... are they two 4 ohm drivers wired in series or two 16 ohm drivers in parallel ?? ... if they are 4 ohm drivers you could switch the wiring to parallel and this would then be a 2 ohm cabinet ....
.. I realize that this will not be helping your being able to 'combine' cabs, but at least it will give you a 2 ohm match for your SVT for smaller situations where you dont want to drag the 410 Av along ...
But that would be really great if I could safely use a single 210 for the smaller gigs.
I have not actually tried the SVT with the Avatar yet so I may not even like the tone and want to sell the cab.
