    hey guys,
    my drummer has offered me an old randall road warrior rb1000 bass head to use but i need to get a cab. i was looking at the specs and the output is 300 w at 2 ohms, can you guys suggest ant cheap cabs that run at a 2 ohm rating. if im correct if i run a 4 ohm cab through this amp im effectivley cutting the output to 150 w is that right?
    any suggestions
    cheers

    I don't think that there are any 2Ohm bass cabs, there's just one small German company (sieben audio design) which makes one as far as I know.
    But you get a 2Ohm load by using two 4 Ohm cabs.
    The output into a 4Ohm load will rather be around 200W than 150W I suppose.

    EBS´s 810 and 412 cabs are available in 2 ohm versions.

    Find some craptacular 8-ohm 4x10. Chances are, it's wired in series/parallel. Rewire it to parallel and you've got a 2-ohm load.

    I took my 8 ohm 4x10 (with 4 8 ohm speakers) and wired it in series. This made it a 2 ohm cabinet.
     
  6. Mattski, you mean in parallel. In series would yield 32 ohms.

    Right you are. I meant parallel.
