4, 8, 16 ohm sound difference?

is there really a sound difference in these 3? because i found a good deal on a thd hotplate thats 4ohm and my 5150 and laney vh100r have switchable ohms. so if theres not really a difference then i may get this. im pretty much just going to be using it for recording direct into my interface and using redwirez irs.

and i know alot of people like to be smart asses, assholes, arrogant tools, etc; on this forum. so if you feel like thats going to be you just dont even bother responding.

I'd buy a higher impedance than 4 just to increase the usefulness with other amps and also to use it as an attenuator and not just a load box. I'd buy whatever matched my cab.

in theory they don't sound the same...
I have discovered that 16 is easier to control...the volume especially for bedroom...
the 8 and 4 tends to get loud easier...
it has to do with the transformers resistance I guess...

Really? I don't see that around here. Try going on a sports forum.

Generally, the lower the ohm, the more "oomph" it's going to have. More low end, thicker. That's just how speakers work. As far as how it affects the sound regarding the use for recording direct with impulses, I dunno.

aight cool i think i may just hold off and get the 16 ohm version then. thanks guys.

and i still stand by my statement, ive read so many peoples responses and had people respond to a couple of the things ive posted on here and they were just bein straight douchers.

also possibly someone needs to fix the search thing on here. ive typed in things about recording guitars just to get some new techniques and see how other people do it and everything else in the world popped up except recording guitars.

I love how people have a problem with you not wanting a douchebag response. Because that's wrong of you? Lol... also notice how the people with the highest post counts/most time being a member are the ones that just helped, very interesting observation.

Anyway, future reference, there is this Sneap forum Google custom search thing you can use: http://www.google.com/cse/home?cx=00...09:4qw46y8lnza

The search on the forum here blows, use that one instead.

Lower "ohm-age" mean more brutalism, well my marshall with 16Ohm V30's sounds brighter than my Harley benton with 8Ohm V30's, I know that's not the same cab so you can't really compare!
Anyway I confirm what 006 says about the oomph

Maybe the google custom search link should be stickied?

YES! you nailed it right on the butt brotha lol. like the thing that made me put that was that there was some kid asking about slip editing and instead of just answering the pour kid people were pretty much attacking him. its just frustrating when they couldve just answered his question instead of giving him shit, which wouldve taken the exact same time if not less.

but anywho enough of that lol. thanks for the link ill start using that next time i try and look somthin up.

again thanks to everyone who helped!

Sorry cabt read the whole thread now ( annoying with the phone) if what i say has been said. I used to stick to 8 ohms with mesa gear but lately i purchased a marshall amo and cab and experimented with tgese and actually dound a nuce difference. Ubfirtunately i cant remember which one i ended up with and why haha so u remibded me ti check back. But definitely a difference. I think witg tge 5150 i stick with 8 tho. U guys use 4?

It's pretty simple.

16 is low. 4 is high.

If you want more body go 4. if you want more control go 16. If you want both go 8.

I meant more obviously like, "Search frustrating you? Try this!" As opposed to "useful links"

I've noticed that usually 16 ohms is louder and brighter sounding than 4 or 8 ohms, and that the dynamic range tends to be just a little more sensitive. Also, if you have a volume difference in output (especially between different speaker types/brands/etc.) then you may compensate and drive the amp differently, thus affecting tone more significantly.

I agree, that's why he won't be posting here anymore in the future.

I agree with him that we have way too many arrogant, ignorant and condescending young timers here, we don't need those, they need to be sorted out...and his post was one of the most arrogant and condescending post I've read here in a long time.
I won't permaban them from the UM board, but I do have the possibility of denying access to the Sneap forum.
Something that'll happen much more often in the future...culling the herd (only talking about disrespectful and arrogant new members with low post count here...you know, the ones that keep flooding the forum recently)
