    The head has a 4 or 8 ohm option only. Was wondering if I could use it with my Eden XLT610? It's 6 ohms. If it's ok, which do I use, I'm assuming the 4?
  2. I would use the 4 ohm tap.. I'm very far from an electronic expert tho. .. hopefully someone who knows (far) more than I, will chime in.
  3. Tubes prefer less impedance than the nominal rating when exact is not an option. So use the 8 ohm tap.

  4. That's what I meant. .. only I stated the opposite. . That's pretty usual for me I think. .. or maybe. ...... :sour: ???

    This is the correct answer and the best option, although you are probably safe either way.

  6. 8 ohm drivers.
  7. 8 ohm drivers make a 6 ohm cab with 6 of them. Purely a convenience over getting custom drivers to add up to 4 ohms.

    Getting most power out of an amp is overrated.

    I too agree with setting the amp at 8Ω. :)
  9. the point is there is no point to a 6ohm cab. No selling point anyway. Either it suits the user or it doesn't.

    If you have no inclination to maths the power thing gets very hard to explain. Two hundred watts into 610 will rattle your fillings. But doubling to four hundred watts only makes it a squidge louder.
