Avatar 115 convert 8ohm?

  1. Can an Avatar 115 4ohm be converted to 8ohm without a risk of damage? I know there are threads that answer this question but I only have a few minutes before I have to make a decision?

    Yes - if you buy an 8-ohm speaker for the cab and ditch the old one.

    What's the price on the cab shipped? I've seen some suitably-sized empty 115 cabs on the net for about $150 shipped. Also, I'd consider a better driver than that Delta myself, and maybe even a neo.

    If you are also planning on running another cab like a 210 or 410 with that, the Kappalite 3015LF would be a good fit.
     
  6. The B115 is used at $125 local pick up. It is in great condition. I gave it a test run this afternoon with a 4 banger. The size of this cabinet raises a question. It is nearly the size of the B210 Neo and that makes me think the B115 may not handle the low frequencies very well. I past on the B115 for now and bought the 8 ohm B210 Neo for $150. Now that I have some free time, I will read the TBers opinions on the B115.

    Kappalite 3015LF = $140
