    personally i dont know any 2 ohm cabinets models. If there are, they are probably really high end or custom made.
     
  3. buy two 4ohm cabs.

    Can your amp handle a 2 ohm load? Just wondering. Not a lot of amps can. Yeah, get 2, 4 ohm cabs and parallel them! I can't think of anybody who makes a 2 ohm cab

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you want a 2 ohm cab because you think it will be louder than a 4 ohm or 8 ohm cab. It won't. But it you must have one just buy an 8 ohm 4x10 and rewire it to 2 ohms by putting the drivers all in parallel.

    Actually Dave at Avatar told me he could do either a 410 Neo or 410 Pro in 2 ohm configuration for no extra charge.

    Errr why? That's limiting you alot there.. And meaning you can only run your amp in 2ohms full time, I hope you have an amp that can handle it.
     
  9. I haven't heard of any 2 ohm cabs, but If you were looking for a 4x10, then just get two 2x10 4ohm cabs, that should get full power from your amp if it is capable of running at 2 ohms - otherwise you will fry it...

    ALL 8 ohm 4x10 cabs can be easily converted to run at 2 ohms just by wiring them in parallel, as previously mentioned. No replacement parts needed.

    Most 4x10's already contain 8 ohm speakers, wired in a series/parallel combination for an 8 ohm total rating. Once the cab is open, it takes two minutes to reconfig the wiring to all parallel and thus 2 ohms.

    And, if you later decide you want to add another cab, just open it back up and arrange the wiring to the original 8 ohm configuration. Its easy!
