    Hello,

    I have a SWR goliath III cab the 8 ohm version. I am thinking about getting the Ashdown ABM 500 EVO II. Am I going to run into any ohm problems with this combination? or anything that I should know about?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    An ohm is a unit of measurement, so its an IMPEDANCE issue, not an ohm issue.

    There's a sticky FAQ on impedance and ohms at the top of this forum that answers your question.

    Same here, you only don't use the full potential power of the ashdown. But in my case it's still loud enough.
