Sorry for the long post, you may not, but I found this kind of funny. I picked my guitarist and my brother up after school yesterday for a trip into Pittsburgh to find some PA speakers. We planned on going right to guitar center, but when we got close I remembered a used music store, and I thought I'd check that out first. So in we go. It's a decent sized music store with a lot of inexpensive used gear. I walked over to the PA section, while the guitarist of course went to the guitars. While I'm looking at the pa speakers, I see the "music store rock star" (you know what I'm talking about, the long haired guy in his 40's that works at EVERY music store and knows more about everything than everyone) talking to Eddie, my guitarist. Eddie keeps laughing for some reason. After a few minutes Rock Star comes up to me and asks if I need help with anything. This conversations ensues. Rock Star:Can I help you with anything? Me: Yeah, I'm looking for some cabs for my pa. Do you have any 4 ohm cabs here? (I couldn't read the back panel the way they were all stacked.) RS: No, man, they don't make 4 ohm pa cabs. Maybe if you played guitar or bass, most guitar and bass cabs are 4 ohm, but they don't make PA cabs in under 8 ohms. Me: Are you sure about that? RS: Yeah, What kind of pa is it? Me: Well, it's a Crate pa head, 300 watts at 2 ohms. I was hoping to run 2 4 ohm cabs. RS: No, you don't want to do that, you want to run 2 8 ohm cabs. It'll be 150 watts with 2 8 ohms cabs, that's loud enough. Besides, they don't make Pa cabs in less than 8 ohms. At this point, I wasn't even going to ask what they were tuned for. I could see he didn't know his stuff, and was BSsing to try and get a sale. I thanked him for his time, and headed for guitar center. On the way, I told my guitarist about what Rock Star had said. Apparently, he had a similar encounter. Eddie was looking at some cheap no-name guitar from Japan. They had a conversation something like this. RS:That's a great guitar, great company.(it was something like indiano) Eddie:Really? I've never heard of them. Are they new? RS: Whoa, someone hasn't been getting his guitar magazines. Of course they're new, Japan has only been making guitars for 5 or so years. Every company making guitars in Japan is new. This was when I had seen Eddie laughing in the store, for obvious reasons. So at Guitar Center, I go look at Pa gear. One of the employees from that dept. askes me if he can help me with anything, and I ask him the same question. 4 ohm pa cabs. he asks what price range I'm looking at, and I say used if they have it, if not then under $600. He took me right to what I wanted. 2 4 Ohm cabs that handle 350 watts. Perfect. He asnswered all of my questions great, and I got them. The fun part was riding home with 2 other people, and 2 2x15 cabs in my car.
