Ohms versus Volume
I'm just curious if there's any difference between ohms versus power. For example, is there any difference in volume between running 16 ohms into a 16 ohm cabinet or 8 ohms into an 8 ohm cabinet? What are the pluses and negatives of using different ohms?
I have a Mesa triple recto running a 16 ohm 4x12 cabinet (from the 16 ohm speaker jack) and an 8 ohm 1x18 cabinet (from the 8 ohm speaker jack). The blend is nice and the Mesa somehow naturally routes more low end through the 18, however the 4x12 is significantly louder than the 1x18. Is it due to the difference in ohms? Is there an easy way to balance them out?
