    Hi, I just need some reassurance that I can use my Ampeg BSE410HLF cab, rated 400 watts @ 4 ohms - as an extension cab for my Ampeg BA-210 combo.

    It says on the back of my BA-210 combo: Rated Output - 283 Watts @ 8 ohms / 450 Watts @ 4 ohms. But what confuses me is it also says right above the connector on the combo amp "Ext Spkr Out 8 ohms".

    So my question is - Can I actually use the cab with the BA210?

    I am terrible at figuring ohms out :D Thanks!!

  2. No - that would bring your load down to 2.67 ohms and will fry the head.

    And even if your 4X10 was an 8 ohm cab, it would not be a good pairing as the speakers in your combo's 2X10 would be getting hit with 2X the power of the speakers in your 4X10

    Agreed with Bass Pounder. The BA210 was designed to pair with an 8 ohm cab, not a 4.
