    im lookin into getting a new 410xlt and will be pairing it with a ca-9/svp-pro.

    Is there an advantage in having the 8ohm over the 4 ohm model?

    You can add more 8 ohm cabs together before reaching minimum impedance.

    yes but i only need one 410. Two would be way too much

    Then it depends on your amp, and what kind of power it puts out with different loads. If you can bridge into 4 ohms, then a 4 ohm cabinet might be the way to go for maximum power. However, 1800W bridged into 8 ohms from a CA9 will be more than enough for one D410XLT.

    No such thing as "too much" ;)

    I'm running 1, 4 ohm 410XLT w/ my WT1205. I don't know your set up, but as a rule, if you use 1 cab, 4 ohm gets the most out of your amp.

    True, but check out the power ratings on the CA9:

    http://www.crestaudio.com/products/...25/number/CFA-CA9-AB/cat/319/begin/0/CA+9.cfm

    8 Ohm Bridged - 1800 W
    4 Ohm Bridged - 2000 W

    Either way, the cabinet will have far more amp than it needs.
     
  8. Who knows what the future might bring Grasshopper? :ninja: Why limit yourself for no reason. I use an 8o xst with a MM 135 watt tube head for practice and rooms up to about 150 people. These cabs are very efficient (read loud) and you have plenty of power. Go with the 8o, just in case...

    well i can say im def not bridging the ca-9. One channel is enough, here are the ratings:
    8 Ohm Stereo - 600 W
    4 Ohm Stereo - 900 W

    I'm thinking the 4ohm would be best since my ht322 is also 4ohms, and i could always use the 2 together if needed.

    I'd go 4 ohm and just use one channel. That way, when you get tired of carrying the CA9, you'll be able to get full power from one of the current crop of nice 500@4 heads.

    You didn't mention the HT322 previously. In that case, the 4 ohm D410XLT sounds like the best solution.

    Hey I got one for sale if you need it - XLT 4 ohm with EDEN cover. Unless you are going to use more than one definitely go with the 4 ohm and get the most out of your amp.
    PM me if interested.
