    I'm looking at power amps...now, say I have two 8 ohm cabs, which make a 4 ohm load...would I then look at the 4 ohm stereo specs (IE the watts per channel) or the 8 ohm stereo specs?

    Thanks.

    Look at the 8 Ohm specs if you plan to run one cab on each channel, and the 4 Ohm if you're going to put them both on one channel or (more likely) bridge at 4 Ohms.
