    Your ears have to be your guide. EQ has a large bearing on the volume number. Dial numbers are only markers, not laws.

    I don't see any Portaflex cabs listed as being 4 ohms, only 8 ohms (PF-500 outputs 350 watts at 8 ohms).

    Sorry I did not clarify - Two 8 ohm cabs in parallel

    I have the PF500 into two cabs, 115HE and 210HE. Quite like it! And yes, it does get loud!
