    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    I havent been able to find the specs on this thing anywhere (including TB), so all apologies for this quick Q. Can the Mesa Bass 400 handle a 2 ohm load?

    The 400 cannot handle a 2ohm load, the 400+ can handle a 2 ohm load, the 400 has 6 tubes, while the 400+ has twelve tubes, they both put out around 300 watts because the tubes are different

    The 400+ has 2, 4, and 8 ohm output jacks labeled as such on the back...
