Hey guys, I was just wondering, if a 4x12 cab with all V30's was 8 ohms and it was pit against a cab that was 16 ohms, would there be a difference in sound?

I am well aware of the law of ohms and how it applies to your tube amp, i just need to know if the sound/tone varies between ohms.

edit: In this scenario, both cabs would be the exact same, just different impedances.
Ibanez RG4EXFM1
Peavey 5150II All Tube 120w Head
Avatar contemporary 2x12 (Celestion v30's)
Peavey Vypyr 15w (Fantastic Practice Amp!!!)

Got Djent?

My answer is no. The human ear cannot detect a difference. Technically, 16 ohms is less efficient than 8 or 4 ohms.

There was a similar question asked over on the Splawn boards and Ayton(e) provided a link where he expounds on that a little further. Interesting.
