  1. I think we have all established that the Avatar speakers are great cabs for the price. I don't want to sound like an idiot but if I were to buy two 4x10 cabs at 8 Ohms, that would = an 8x10 at 4 ohms for a couple hundred less than the ampeg 8x10. Would this work ? Imagine 4 4x10 cabs, with a head that could handle 2 ohms that would move some serious air ! Once again, I am a little new to all the amp stuff and I don't want to sound like an idiot but that would be kinda cool

    It wouldn't be exactly the same, but it would still be a good setup. The Avatar cabs are ported and the Ampeg 810 is a sealed design if I'm not mistaken. 410s are heavy because there are 4 drivers in the cab and that adds a lot of weight. But a 2 410 setup would be more versatile than the 810 and a lot more portable. But the two Avatars won't sound like the Ampeg, I used to have an Avatar 410 and I still own my vintage Ampeg 810, and the Ampeg wins hands down if you have a really good buddy who doesn't mind helping to load and unload.

    i would rather have an 8x10. but 2 4x10's would be perfectly fine for moving around. much more than an 8x10, well unless you have a truck.

    playing in front of an AMPEG 810 makes you look like a bad-a** too!

    what other cabs besides the ampeg 8x10 have a sealed design? I'm lookin for a sealed 2x10 or 4x10
