Amp heads

    I'm seriously considering an ashdown mag 410, but I haven't decided on a head yet. Ive always used combo amps up until now, so I don't really know what I'm looking for. I know I need to have at least as many watts for the cab as for the head, but what if I have more? Also, what would I need in terms of ohms? Any general advice or brand/model recommendations are welcome.
  2. Heads? Gallien-Krueger, GenzBenz, Markbass, Ashdown, Mesa, Carvin, Acoustic..
    What is the Ohm rating on your Mag 410? You can have more output (watts) from the amp head then the cab is rated for, but if you start pushing the amp hard or run to much EQ it then could cause problems. You can also run an amp head with less power than the cab is rated for as long as that amp has enough power to do what you need.
