    I just have a quick question guys...as a back up head i need to bring my m6 carbine head to a gig....
    It is to run an Ampeg heritage 4ohm cab (810 cab)...
    Will there be any issues?

    Let me know

    thanks

    The only issue you might run into would be your tone causing mild seismic activity... I have one of them... ridiculously loud.

    It could handle a 2 Ohm load. There is a switch on the back of the amp (2 Ohm / 4+8 Ohm).
     
  6. Theres not much your m6 can't handle


    WHAT A BACKUP!
     
  7. What is your main rig?

    The only problem will be that it will make you want an M9, LOL!
