    Can I use my 8 ohm eden extension cab with my Super Redhead which has a 4 ohm 2X10 inside?

    SWR claims the amp can drive loads down to 2 ohms, so in theory yes you can do that.

    Search for threads in ths forum about SWR amps running hot when driving less than 4 ohm loads.

    I know it may run hot I've seen those threads but I also saw threads saying that the ohms of the extension cab have to match the ohms of the interior speakers. True?

    Much thanks for your input.
