    I just got a 4X10 cab. It has an AMPEG emblem on the front,
    and a tag on the back that says SVT 4ohms. I don't know what model cab i have? Two of the speakers are blown and I
    want to repair or replace them. The speakers are 32ohms.
    So i don't understand how the cab is playing at 4ohms.
    Please help.Thanks.

    Are you sure that the driver's RE aren't 3.2 ohms?

    Is there a serial # on the magnet?

    Sorry if that doesn't help... That's all I can think of currently.

    That makes sense. The reading on a DMM will almost always be lower than 4 ohms. 3.2 makes all the sense on the world.

    Four 4-ohm speakers in series/parallel would present a final load of 4 ohms, which is what the cabinet states.

    Is it ported?
    Does it have a fabric grill or a metal one?

    I assume it an SVT410HLF since it say SVT, but if it has a metal grill and is built like a tank and has a oval A on the front, it's a PR and you need cast speakers.

    The grill is covered in fabric.
