    The OHM's is the resistance in the electrical circuit. An 8 OHM cab has twice the resistance of a 4 OHM cab. Always be sure to match the OHM rating on the cab and speaker or you could do some serious damage like blow a speaker or fry somethin'.

    THis question gets asked a lot. So if you do a keyword search, you find plenty of info.

    If you're still confused after that, PM me and I'll see if I can clear it up.
