    A lot of 'em (EDEN, EPIFANI, AGUILAR, and even PEAVEY). In fact I think most make the option.

    Firkinahsoul said it: Most of the cabinet manufacturers make 4/10 boxes. What you will like will depend on the tone you like and the amount of money you're willing to spend after you decide (if you haven't already) what head or rack combo you want. If you haven't decided on a head, it might be best to start hitting the stores and trying every combination of amp/cabinet you can find.

    The only company I can think of that DOESN'T make a 4ohmer is Basson.

    actually, until recently a lot of companies only made 8 ohm 4x10 boxes. i think it was probably a $ saving thing. they only made/bought 8 ohm 10" drivers, so you could pretty much get either an 8 ohm 4x10 or a 4 ohm 2x10. i know bag end still does this. the original swr goliath 1 and 2 series were like this as well.
     
  8. Ampeg's SVT410HLF is 4 ohm, I believe. Thats the taller, heavier one with the tilt-back bar.

    I have an ancient peavey 4x10 that is 4 ohms, I believe it handles 300 watts... I still use it a lot for ongoing rehersals and shows where I have to leave equipment there for extended periods of time while still working other gigs... Still sounds great...

    ancient peavey heads, cabs and cmbos are the best. i swear you could leave them outside all year long and they'd still work.

    I've got an Ampeg BXT410 in 4ohms... Rated 600Watts RMS. I'm pretty sure that a lot of brands make 4ohm 410 cabs, you just gotta looka round.

    Bag End doesn't, according to the specs on their web site. The 4x10's are 8 ohm. The other odd thing is that they list both their 2x10's as 4 ohm. I'm almost wondering if that's not an error in the pdf?
