    I've been hearing alot of "this amp matches perfectly with this cabinet" and I'm pretty clueless regarding this...

    Is it a configuration thing or a brand thing?

    What amps match well to these cabs?

    fEARful 15/6/1

    Aguilar DB or GS 410 and 212

    Bergantino NV610

    Bergantino HD410

    Bergantino HD412

    Genz Benz Über 410

    Genz Benz Über 212

    Also, is it optimal to run an amp at 8 ohms or 4 ohms?

    And as always, any and all thoughts and info is appreciated...

    It's a taste thing. Amplifiers and cabinets have particular "voicings" (which may include "flat") that may complement one another in a pleasing way or not, and/or may require EQ adjustments to compensate.

    It would make sense if one brand's amplifiers and cabinets "matched" well, and no doubt they do for many higher-end brands, but I always assume marketing departments trump engineering departments until proven otherwise, and any "matching" is done at the visual rather than the aural level.
     
  5. The pink amp with the blue lights and green knobs will match well with all of those. :D:bassist::D
