    ok i know nothing about ohms and such. What model eden d-410xlt for example is better, the 4 or 8 ohm. and what is the difference??
     
  2. I'd go for the 8-ohm model.. this allows you to add a second cab later on..

    the other question.. well.. i think our main speaker-man Joris can give you a perfect answer :D

    Some people have argued that damping factor is increased with lower impedance (ie 4 ohms) but I hear no difference personally. If you plan to add additional cabs then 8ohms would be wise. If you're using SS amplification and only plan to use the 4-10 cab, then you will get more wattage from the 4 ohm load.

  4. Do you have a double channel amp? If so, go for the 4 ohm, if not go with the 8.
