    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.

    i got that amp, and its powering a 8 ohm cab

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