    Okay, I'm sure this topic has been beat to death but- what happens if I run my SVT II Pro (which is 2 or 4 ohms) into my Carvin 15 inch rated at 8ohms? Fire? Pandimonium? Give me the good, bad and ugly- Thanks

    You'll just get less of the power out of the amp, shouldn't hurt anything. Put two 8 ohm cabs in parallel to get 4 total and take advantage of the full power of your amp.
