    I have been looking at all the cabs and trying them out and have decided to go with the SWR Goliath III series. YES!

    My question is this, I know NOTHING about this ohm stuff. I am going to get 2 swr 4x10s and power it with the swr 750x head. So, what ohms should everything be and if you could, please tell me why.

  2. The SWR 750 is a bit of an odd duck in that it puts out max power into a 2.67 ohm load. The only way I can figure to get a 2.67 ohm load is to mix a 4ohm and an 8ohm cab, which nobody I know recomends. But it cranks out 750 watts into 4ohms and to be on the safe side that's what I think you ought to shoot for. You can achieve a 4ohm load by either using one 4ohm cab (of course) or by using two 8ohm cabs.
