    Hello everybody, thanks for having me over.

    I own some SWR gear,

    SWR SM900
    SWR SM400s

    SWR Goliath II 4x10 8ohm
    SWR Goliath II Jr. 2x10 4ohm
    SWR Big Ben 18 8 ohm
    SWR Bass Monitor 12 8 ohm

    I am looking for recommendations on how to run and use this gear. As either 2 separate amps or 1 killer setup, lol. Any opinions would be appreciated, especially from any SWR users out there.

    Thanks for reading. Cheers.

    Probably the only way I'd run these...

    SM400s into 4x10 full-range
    SM400s biamped with the 2x10 and 1x18
    SM900 into 4x10 full-range
    SM900 biamped with the 2x10 and 1x18

    You can try mixing cabs in full-range mode but I personally wouldn't bother. JMHO, YMMV, etc.

    May I add, bridged, when running full range?
  4. How are the speakers in that 210 wire? If they are two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel you could re-wire them in series and have a 16 Ohm 210. I would run a 16 Ohm 210 and an 8 Ohm 410 together full range.
