    hartke 3500 head is 350 w at 4 ohms.

    hartke 2.5 xl cab is 200 w at 8 ohms.
    hartke vx 1508 cab is 300 w at 8 ohms.
    ashdown mag 210t deep cab is 200 w at 8 ohms.
    warwick 211 pro cab is 400 w at 8 ohms.
    peavey 210 tvx cab is 350 w at 4 ohms.
    swr workingmans 2x10 is 200w at 8 ohms.
    yamaha bbt 210 cab is 300 w at 4 ohms.

    Wich one will match the best with Hartke 3500 head ?

  2. i know its not on your list but u should check into the Hartke 410xls
    i know alot of people who are satisfied with those and they use a 3500 head... oh yea dont go with the .5 hartke series, i have popped several 5's and they really dont make much of a difference in the sound

    what about Eden210T? :hyper:
  5. Personally I would go with the Peavey 2x10 @ 4ohms,... but I don't think you will be able to add another cabinet for future use.

    A 4ohm cab will essentially be louder than a 8ohm cab because it will be maximizing the power from your amp, but you will not be able to add any more cabs if your amp is rated for a minimum impedance of 4ohms.

    If you got one of the 8ohm cabs you suggested then you would be able to add another 8ohm cab and not cause any damage to you amp,... but your amp will not be running at it's full potential with only one 8ohm cab.

    I still think the Peavey 2x10 @ 4ohms would be best because you talked of portability, and the 4ohm cab would make the most of your 350watt head. Just know that if you need more volume you can't use another cab with that setup (you either have to change the head or the Peavey 2x10)

    Hope that helps.
