Hi there, I really could use some help. I'm using a cab I got from my local music store because I wanted to support the shop but I may have found that this wasn't the way to go. I also got the head that came with the cab, but the cab was made by somebody. "Ampeg speakers" is what the worker told me they were, but now I may be doubting it. It's 240 watts at 8ohms (the cabinet.) No option for 4 ohms. The head is suppose to be 350 watts at 4 ohms and something like 240 watts at 8 ohms. On the back of the head, there is NO option for 4 ohms though. Only the 8. Theres two of them in fact. The head is this: Hartke HA3500C Anyways, my cab is coming out distorted during our practice and I'm unsure why. It's pushing 240 watts at 8 ohms through both the head and cab, and the volume is definitely on full blast with both the tube and solid state control on FIVE. EQ is completely flat. The cab OR HEAD also isn't loud enough. Is there a way to push for that full 350 watts even though there is only an option for 8 ohms? Why isn't there an option for 4 on the back of the head? Thanks to everyone who puts up with my questions all of the time. I'm trying to learn from those who know about this sort of thing and I understand some people might get frustrated with me. We also have a gig coming up and the thing is on full blast and it isn't LOUD ENOUGH. Sadly Edit: The only problem I have with being a bassist is the fact that I can never find equipment loud enough to compete with those way too loud guitar players. It really bothers me!
