Question about ohms in a legacy

i own a carvin legacy and i unfortunatly cant play loud as often as i'd like so i did the whole 50 watt change and it gets to that awesome tone at a lower vol. What about the ohms though. If i changed it from 16 where it is now to say 4 would that make it quieter so i can crank the vol more get to that tone faster. I have the half stack if that helps. thanks

4ohms is louder than 16 ohms. Don't change it unless your cab can handle 4 or your could do some damage.

yes at 50 watts the amp clips (maximum tone) better at lower volumes then at 100 you just loose some high end volume thats all. I have it on 50 to keep my ears happy at lower volume and the neighboors and rents happy.
