    I currently have an 8ohm SWR 4x10 but the Thunderfunk pushes its full wattage at 4ohms. Thing is I'm planning on getting a 1x15 cab to add. Is there a way to run two 4ohm cabs on the THunderfunk or will I have to stick with 8ohm?

    Stick with 8 ohm. Most 1-15 cabs are 8 ohm anyway.
     
  3. Agreed. Stick with the 8 ohm.

    The Thunderfunk will not push a 2 ohm load, so you are stuck with one 4 ohm cab or two 8 ohm cabs (or four 16 ohm cabs ;) ).

    I'm actually paying (h)ohmage to at new ThunderFunk myself this evening. Just arrived from BassNW. Great service and it seems like a very versitile head, so far.

    :D

    That is one thing that I really liked about its tone controls. You can make some quick, "easy fix" type of adjustments, as well as more detailed, precise adjustments. I feel that it is a very versatile setup, and I liked it a lot.

    Enjoy!
