Is it possible to convert an 8 ohm cabinet to 4 ohms? I have a TC Electronic 212 which is 8 ohms, and I'm interested in an amp that's 500W at 4ohms, so I'd like to use this amp with the TC cab if possible so I can exploit as much of the amp's power as possible.

Thanks y'all!

If it's a single speaker cab, replace the 8ohm speaker with a 4ohm... but I'm sure you know that! A multi-speaker cab is not so simple, especially if it has midrange and tweeters installed. I don't know about bass cabs, but from what I've seen of guitar cabs, they can be wired in various ohm resistances, depending on series-or-parallel wiring schemes... that's about all I've got for ya! :)
