    For those of you with experience.....

    I have a 6x10 Ampeg cab and I want to add another cab. I am thinking either another 6x10 or two 4x10 cabs. I figure I can pack the 6x10 or a 4x10 to smaller gigs and when needed pack the any combination of two to all three.

    My question is will two 4X10 Cabs move the same amount of air as the famous fridge 8X10?

    A verticle stack of 2 Ampeg 4X10HE cabs should sound exactly like a single Ampeg 8X10E.:)
  3. Same number of speakers... same size speakers... same type of speakers... in theory, should move the same amount of air. As far as sounding the same, I would think the cabinets can affect that. Two 4x10 cabs, may not sound the same as one 8x10. The 4x cabs sure would be easier to haul around though.
