OK, after reading through the archives, I have decided to buy a new rig. I am going to order an Avatar 410 cab, my question is 8 or 4 ohm. And whats the best power amp and pre-amp I can buy for the money. I played through a Hartke 4.5 and a 5000 head for about a year, and intended to purchase a 115xl, but quickly found out that I have no need for an additional cab. So ordering a 4 ohm cab sounds more realistic in my situation, but your suggestions are needed. Most of my gigs have been close to home, but thats fixing to change. Most venues we have played in the past have been enclosed areas, with a maximum of 500 people. Some very VERY large gigs are coming up , but don't think my stage volume would have to change, If the soundman can tap me into the monitors a little. Of course, if I add an additional 410 4 ohm cab, the Crown will handle the load, but GEEZ!
