    It should be fine, what's the impedence of the 4x10? I'm not that familiar with ampeg stuff.

    As long as the speaker impedence is no lower than what the amp is rated at, it should not hurt the amp. If the speaker impedence is higher than what you see a rating for on your amp, it won't hurt a thing, it just won't get as much power into that load.

    If you want to use only the 2x15" It is ok to do so.

    The 4x10 you mention is an SVT410HE?
    If so, then no problem. That cab is 8 Ohms and with the 2x15" at the same time the total load would be 4Ohms. Wich is acceptable for your SVT350.
  4. Is the head powerful enough?

    If both cabs are 8 ohms and you are planning to connect both, you will now get the 350 watts that the head is capable of. With the 8 ohm load, you were probably getting in the low 200s.

    If you plan to run the 2X15 instead of the 4X10, you will get the same power as you had before (low 200s ???). The volume of the 2X15 relative to the 4X10 depends upon the relative efficiecy of the two cabs.

    In a nutshell, the amp will drive either configuration. Just be sure not to drive the amp into severe clipping (this is always the case) or you could damage your speakers.
