    Is there such a thing as a bass cabinet that has 4 ohm impedence? If so, is it better to get one cabinet with 4 ohm impedence, or two cabinets with 8 ohm impedence?

    I've got a bass head that puts out considerably more with 4 ohm impedence.

    Yes. Nearly all major manufacturers ( and not so major manufacturers) have a choice available of either 4 ohms or 8 ohms. SWR, Aguliar, Eden, Peavey, Carvin, Ampeg, Epifani, Bergantino and everyone in betwen all make 4 ohm cabs.

    Generally, if one cab is all you want, a 4 ohm cab is probably your best choice. If you think you may want to add a cab later go with an 8 ohm. That way, when you add another 8 ohm cab, your combined load will be 4 ohms which will suck the max power from your amp.
