should I use 4 ohms or 8 ohms when recording? I'm guessing 8 would work for a tighter sound.

The amount of ohms do not change the sound. You should use the amount of ohms that the cabinet needs. 8 ohms is not better than 16 or 4 ohms and vice versa.

yeah, impedance should depend on what your amp needs. However, a safe mismatch, such as running an 8ohm cab on a 4ohm amp setting, can produce a slightly darker tone with less output and attack. I've never heard about it making it tighter though.

If you put an 8 ohm cab on a 4 ohm head, it will also cut the amps power by about 1/2. So try and match it up.

so why would u ever need the choice of 2 different impedance levels? i have a peavey classic 50 with an 8 ohm output and a 16 ohm output. which one should i use?

so you can use different impedance cabs with it. Cab impedance depends on what speakers they used, and how they wired the cab.
