Simple Question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by semborg, Jul 2, 2005.


  1. Later this summer I sureley will buy a 4x10 cab to co-operate with my 2x10.

    I have been told that the 4x10 cab will be way louder than the 2x10. (Both cabs are Yamahas new ones rated at 4 ohms).

    But how can it be louder? They get exacly the same ammount of power - They should be equal?

    Tell me how this works.
    Thank you.

    It'll have twice the speaker area, and thus, push about twice as much air.....so yeah, it should sound louder
     
  3. but how can it push more air if it gets same power as the 2x10?

    because its going to be twice as big as the 210. So it will have more speaker surface area....

    Watts do not measure volume.....
