    If my Trace Elliot AH600SM is rated at 600w@4ohms must I use a single 4ohm cab or can I use two 8ohm cabs? I would think that one could use two 8ohm cabs but perhaps someone with experience can enlighten me.

    You can use 1 4 ohm cabinet or 2 8 ohm cabinets.

    Or 1 8 ohm cabinet, but then you won't get the maximum power out of your head.
