    Hey guys Shane here I was wondering if anyone could throw some 2 ohm bass heads that are mainly rated at the 500W range!! If anyone could help a brotha out it would mean a lot.. I'm looking for something that has a good tone of course.:)

    PS I'm a NEWB to this technical mumbo jumbo

    "Good tone" is totally subjective. That said, you might want to see if you could locate a Peavey T-Max head. It's 500W into 2 ohms.

    I've got one and have been happy with it for well over a decade.

    Good luck. :)

    GenzBenz Neopak. I believe that I saw one in the classifieds a few days ago. I had one and it ran (2) 4 ohm cabinets with no issues. Great tone.

    Peavey Firebass if you can get ahold of one. 700w @ 2 ohms, built like a tank, and cheap as hell.

    Most any preamp / power amp rig will allow you to run two 4-ohm cabinets.

    Genz NeoPak 3.5 is 350 at 4 ohms and 500 at 2 ohms, most all EA heads (older iAmps or the newer Micros, Doublers and the Pro). Carvin stuff, a lot of Ampeg's gear, Mesa Walkabout and most of their stuff. Fair amount of options! There's always the pre/power rig too
