    OK, so over the summer Im goin to be working so I can buy a new rig. My original plan was to get a pre-power set up and the an Ampeg 410hfl and 410he. I wanted the pre-power setup for 2 reasons 1) I couldnt find many heads that went to two ohms that were affordable and had sufficiant watts and 2)because the hfl is 4 ohms and the he is 8 ohms i wanted to put them on different channels to level out the volume. So my "problem" is this guy I know offered me a great deal on a Peavey Fire bass 700 for cheap! it can go to 2 ohms and has enough watts. So would it be a problem if I had cabs of different impendances running?(volume issues that is) and if so should I get a different cab to go with the 410hfl? what one?
    Thanks! and sorry for the long post
  2. Yes, that would be a problem. AFAIK, the Firebass operates mono-bridged only, so that would result in the 410HLF getting more power than the HE (because of the lower resistance). You would not be able to control the levels of each cab, but rather the stack as a whole.
