HD 400 and lowdown410
by javi_bassist on 2012-07-30 03:36:08.5810


I recently purchased the line6 HD400 and i need a cab. I want to buy the line6 cab lowdown 410, but i saw it works at 8ohms and the head cannot work at 8ohms, only at 4ohms. Could i use the head with a 8ohms cab? I need to know because i will play a show and the other band will lend me their bass cab and it works at 8ohms and i don't want to make the cab burn

To sum up, can i use a single 8ohm cab (like the lowdown cab) with the HD400 head?

YES, you can certainly use the 410 (8 ohm) cabinet and it will work just fine.  HOWEVER, you will not get the full power of the HD400 since you are running at  8 ohms rather than a 4 ohm load.  You could therefore, run the HD400 with two (410 or equivelent) cabinets or a single 4 Ohm cabinet to achive the rated power output of the HD400 head.

using a higher number ohm is not generally a problem... you just don't want to go lower.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
