    I'm thinking of adding a compact 12" (or 15) cab to use for smaller gigs where only one cab is needed, but I'd like to use as much power from my Walter Woods amp as possible, so I'm looking for a 4 ohm cab.
    I'm also looking for as compact a cab as possible.

    I may end up with another Flite cab, but would appreciate suggestions before I make my decision.

    Any suggestions?

    There aren't much 15"s available in 4ohm version. I took a lot of research and finally I bought Peavey BVX 115-they offer it in either 4 or 8 ohm versions. It doesn't have tweeter, but it goes very high for a 15" driver. Freq. response is 30hz÷3.5kHz.

    You should rather look for a cab with the highest sensitivity. A 8-ohm cab with 103dB sens. will be as loud with your Woods as a 4-ohm cab with 100dB sens.

    And if you were to compare the same cab in 4 and 8 ohms, you'd notice that the 4 ohm cab was barely louder. So it's just not worth worrying about, for a single cab.
