: : The advice I have been getting, since we exchanged posts on the idea here, is that the ballast resistor idea is a very bad one, because it will rob the amp of power and convert it to heat. I have decided that the best solution for me is to buy another amp to power my second cab. While this is an expensive option, it will also give me all the benefits of a lot of extra volume, and separate EQ for each cab. I'm considering an Ampeg 350 watt B2-B head to power the second cab. Six tens and 650 watts RMS should be enough stage volume for just about any situation, I would think, wouldn't you?

: Would you consider getting another 4 Ohm 2x10, and connecting it on series? It just seems a shame to mess up the hi fi Eden sound with an Ampeg head.

: Good Luck,

Well I could always power my SWR 4x10 with the Ampeg, and the Eden with the WT-300. I have had some hands on time with the SWR 4x10 amd the Eden WT-300, since I last posted, and so far it rocks! I great combination, and PLENTY LOUD without coming close to peaking the Eden power amp section. So I may just sell the Eden 2x10 cab, although I kind of hate to, since it has by far the best definition and articulation of any bass cab I have ever heard or played through. I may just keep it a s low volume gig cab, since it's much less of a back-breaker to lug around, too.
