    I just bought an SWR 350X head this week. I love it! I have an Ampeg 1510HE cab with only 1/4" inputs. The SWR has 1/4" and speakon and I was wondering as to the benefits of one connector over the other.

    In the EU, (large) poweramps are required to have speakons.

    Is that EU rule true?

    I own a Peavey Nitrobass which runs at 700W at 2 Ohms and it doesnt have speakons.

    I am currently running it at 4 ohms (450W). Is this dangerous?
