    I´m sorry for this question but I´m so newbie on bass.
    I saw an inexpensive amp(Ashdown Little Giant 1000) but
    it says that it works at 4 ohms.Can I use a 8 ohms cabinet?
    Don´t have much money and Ashdown Little Giant it is so
    inexpensive.
    Thanks!

    Yes, you can. General rule for non-tube amps is you can use a higher or equal impedance cabinet with a lower or equal impedance amplifier.

    If you use the 4 Ohm amp with the 8 Ohm cabinet it will cut the wattage about in half.
