    i have a 4 ohm peavey bass head and i have a 8 ohm 410 cab and what i believe to be an 8 ohm 115 cab. its not very loud because of the ohm difference, i was wondering if there is anything i can do to make this set up work. thanks

    When you hook the two 8 ohm cabs together the load that the amp gets is 4 ohm. You are already at your optimum power output with your rig. What rating is your head?
