... for your "typical" use
Mods, please move to "amps" forum.
For me it depends on what rig I use....and for what venue I am at.
My main rig for the majority of my shows is the Eden WT1205 with a D610xlt, that setup runs bridged at 6ohms.
My setup for when there are stairs involved is a Eden WT405 & (2)D210xst 4-ohm cabs, so this setup runs at 2ohms.
When I get to play a gig that all I have to do is show up with a rig and play (which is very rare these days) I go with my favorite setup of the WT1205, D212xlt 4-ohm, D210xst 4-ohm, this setup with the WT1205 set in dual mono runs at 4ohms.
Four when I'm using my UL410. At church there is a Hartke cab at 8 ohms which works fine for monitoring purposes so I run 8 there.
Using My Ampeg SVT 4 Pro: 4 Ohms mono into an Ampeg SVT610 HLF & 4 Ohms mono into two daisy chained 8 OHM Ampeg SVT 15E's
and I run at 2 most of the time
10K and 1 meg on the upright....
Four ohms bridged. So, really two. Sorta...
I have a pair of 8-ohm speaker cabs but usually only use one. If needed, I can run both and get 4 ohms.
It depends on the rig. My Redhead is 4 ohms, I run a Henry 4x8 @ 8 ohms with it...that brings it to 2.6 ohms.(This is my main rig, and Steve Rabe told me it was made to handle that load with no damage)
My other rigs I run at 4 ohms
I said 2-4 (thanks for putting that option in). About half the time I use my combo by itself, so 4 ohms. The other half I add an extension cab which makes it 2 ohms.
And if it is an outdoor gig where I am worried about rain, I use two 8 ohm cabs, so again: 4 ohms.
I am only counting gigs, since I have more than one practice setup.
I usually use a combo or one cab + amp. Cabs are all 8 ohm so if I run two, I don't have to worry about less than a 4 ohm load, although I have one bass amp and a power amp that can handle 2 ohm loads. So if I have to run two, three or four cabs, its not an problem. The only time I've run more than two cabs is outside and that's an infrequent occurrence since there's usually decent PA support.
most of the time 4, other times 2 ohms
2 ohms with my ebs rig
One 8 ohm cab for 95% of my gigs.
4 ohm. SWR 350 -> BFD Omni 10
4ohms--Ampeg V4BH into an SVT215e
One 8 ohm cab for 99% of my gigs.
I run my amp in bridge mono- so that would be 4 ohms per channel.
Typically 4 ohms.
Unless i feel like overkill
