    On the Mesa Boogie website, the above cabinet reads "Cabinet Impedance Available in 4 or 8 Ohm (8 Ohm Standard)."
    Can anyone explain this to me? I would be an SVT2 Pro plugging through it with a speakon cable. I can just run it at 4ohms? All the pictures of the back panel of the Cab read 8ohms...

    The website info is just saying you can special order a 4-ohm version of that cab, they would instal different speakers (than the 8-ohm version) to achieve this.

    Most of their customers want 8-ohm cabs, so that's why all the pictures of the back panel show 8-ohm...

    Ampeg recommends using (one or two) 4-ohm cabs with the SVT-2 Pro amp. So you should special order the 4-ohm version for use with your amp.

    I have a 4 Ohm Traditional Powerhouse in near mint condition for sale ($650) on Boston craigslist for pickup only, if you are in the area. Excellent cab, but I am now going modular for ease of transportation. Still under warranty as well. I had to special order the 4 Ohm and it took around 3 months to get it through Sweetwater, FYI.
