  1. i just bought a sunn 1200 on ebay and i'm in the process of buying cabs for it. i'm going all 10s should i go with an 8x10 or two 4x10s? and what should the impedance of the cab(s) be?

    Sunn 1200? Don't those have a ton of power? Lordy. Anyway, two 410's if you must. It gives you more options. Get 8-ohm cabs, so when you run them both, you're at 4 ohms. Even with just one cab, you'll still have plenty of power from that beast.

    i think that sunn is stable at 2 ohms so you could do 2 4 ohm 410's and get the full 1200 watts.
     
  4. that is what i was thinking...just suppose i needed to hear it from someone else ;)

    Another vote for dual 4x10s.

    just because the sunn is capable of running it at 2ohms doesn't mean you should.. alot of amps say they can.. but some people have had problems running their amps at 2ohms...

    I will agree with munji here and say go with 2 8ohm cabs.. Thats what I have done.. except i only have one 8ohm cab at the moment..

    Munji is right, 2 8 ohm 410's is my vote. You probably will not see that much of a difference by running 2-4 ohm cabs, and your amp will be working twice as hard.
