  1. I'm trying to decide if I should get a 4x10 4ohm classic ampeg cab or the 4x10 8 ohm so I can add another cab some time down the road. Is the b2r powerful enough to push two cabs ran at 4 ohms or should I go with one at 4 ohms? :bassist:
     
  2. If i could go back i'd get my 410 cab in 8ohm modle. I bought an avatar 4 ohm 4x10 for my b2r. i want it to be 8 ohms so i could add another. the b2r is really weak so thats why i want to now have 2 4x10s instead of one. more speakers the better imo
     
  3. I was thinking it would be harder for the b2r to push two cabs, am I wrong?

    I am pushing 2 cabs... Avatar 2x10 and a 1x12 (4 Ohms) It works great. Fills the room. Cuts through with 3 guitars and a drummer on stage. I am happy with it.

    My B2R pushes my Eden 2X10XLT and Fender 1X15 no problem.

  6. Sounds like I better hold out for the 8 ohm cab. Thanks for the replies.

    I use my B2R with an SVT-410 HLN (4ohms) & I haven't had a problem yet. As for it being weak, opinions are like basses, we all have one, or 2 or 5. :)

    I'm curious what you mean by that. I had a B2R for a few days and was surprised how little power it had. I'd been usinga Behringer 3000 with room to spare which is about the same wattage. (300w)

    I'd pick up an 8ohm cab for futuristic purposes. You'll probably rather have a pair of 8ohm cabs when you have a more powerful amp down the road. The B2R is easy to grow out of.
     
  10. I went ahead and bought the 8 ohm. Since it came into GC used, I have to wait two weeks to get it. Gave me a great deal though.
