    I am still waiting for my 2 low B1s to arrive, but right now I was asking myself, what the difference in sound and volume would be between 2 Low B1s at 8 Ohm and 1 Low B2 at 4 Ohm when played with the same amp?
    Did anyone here actually compare these two setups or has some theoretical knowledge?
    This question also goes for other brands of cabinets. But with the Acmes this is the most interesting, because they are 3-way designs.

    Any info would be great!

    Looks like there should be no difference. The specs are consistent with the B2 being the same as two B1's built into a single box.

    thanks for the reply!

    I actually e-mailed Andy of Acmebass and his reply was that they are designed to sound the same.

    I was just wondering because with 2 LowB1s you get 2 bassspeakers, 2 tweeters and 2 midrange speakers, while with the LowB2 you get 2 bassspeakers, 1 tweeter and 1 midrange speaker.

    I'm sure it sounds a bit different....
