    Lets say there are two amps which are identical in every way, except for the fact that one of the amps running at 500 watts is going into a (4ohm) 4X10, and the other amp is 500 watts going into a (4 ohm) 2x10 + 1x12.

    If these amps are hypothetically exactly the same except for the speakers, how noticeable would the volume difference be?
  2. the 410 has more surface area, but the difference in volume probably neglible. Tone could be different. It depends on a lot of things, ie size of enclosure, porting and so on.

    But my vote is (hypotheticly) to the 410. Either of them will be loud, and in reality you probably wont be able to differentiate between them.

    Impossible to say, as any difference would be sourced from the speakers, not the amp.
