    I'm thinking of selling my Aguilar S810 and getting a pair of DB410s. I love the sound and look of an 810 but I think it'll be better to get the extra versatility of 2 separate 410 cabs.

    My question is very easy really. I have a DB750 (750w @ 4ohms, 925w @ 2ohms) wich goes down to 2ohms. So I inicially tough of getting a pair of 410, 4ohms each. I could run them both at 2ohms or use only one and still get plenty of power and volume.

    But,

    I also have an Aguilar AG500 wich can only do 4ohms so I wouldn't be able to use both 410s together. The other option would be to get the pair in 8ohms so I can use them with any amp out there. By getting the cabs in 8ohms I could even (someday if needed) get 2 more 410s/8ohms and technically have 2 810 stacks running at 2ohms.:bassist:

    So I know the answer is fairly easy, I'm just thinking of the times I'd use only one 410 in 8ohms, if it would be loud enough. I play in a spanish rock band with drummer, 2 guitars, keys and singer.

    Let me know your opinion and sorry for the rant.:p

    do you think you would need more than the 750 watts? if so, then do the 4 ohms, if not then do the 8 ohms.

    personally, i would do the 8, just so you could use them with the AG500.

    Yes i think the answer is pretty obvious. Maybe I should just go to sleep!!
    Thanks for the reply.

    4 ohms is the way to go IMO.

    one db410 in 4ohms will draw and use all the power of the ag500 sufficiently.
    the same cab would make a killer half stack with the db750 that can get freakishly loud.
    two of those cabs would take advantage of the possibility to run the db750 at 2ohms, and you could rattle the house you play in to it´s foundations :p
    there is no other amp out there that sounds good with db410´s except the db750 :D

    cheers,

    If you're bothering to haul two 4x10s are you really going to leave the db750 at home?

    I'd go 4 ohm. Your smallest rig is then the ag500 with one 4x10 (which is a pumping little rig!), your bigger rig is the same cab with the 750, and your stadium rig is the 750 with both 410s.

    hauling gear is not problem, since my band has roadies, but I do agree that no head will replace and sound better than my DB750, I just always look ahead and think of having my AG500 as backup in case anything (not likely) would happen to the 750.

    Maybe I'm just thinking too much. I initially though of 2 4ohm cabs to use with the 750 wich I totally love and don't see replacing in the distant future. The AG500 with one 410 should be great anyways and for any big show I think the 2 410s trough the 750 at 2 ohms should be killer.

    Thanks for all the help and advice but keep 'em coming. I'm curious to know what other members would do.

    Peace...
     
  7. Even if you are only using the 500 as your backup, 2 x 4 ohms seems like the better choice to me. You can get the most out of your 750 with 2 410's and the most out of your 500 with one! Damn you are set!!!!!!!:bassist:

    I think I'm gonna go the way I first though of and check out the 2 DB410s in 4ohms each.

    Always helpful guys, thanks a lot for your feedback.

    Couldn't have said it any better. Definately what I would do (if only I had a DB750 :( )

    I would get only one 4 ohm 410 and keep the 810.

    You would have a small 4ohm rig.(410 + DB750 or AG500)
    A bigger 4ohm rig.(810+ DB750 or AG500)
    A massive 2ohm rig.(410 + 810 + DB750)

    That would be great Willem, but I'm looking at using the money from the 810 + ATA case to buy the 2 410s.

    Thanks anyways.
