    Any of you guys know what kind of speakers the Classic 410E cabinets have in them? I found a manual online at the Peavey archive (http://www.peavey.com/media/pdf/manuals/80301668.pdf), but even that doesn't say.

    Also, it's 16 ohm mono and 8 ohm stereo. Does that mean if I plug an 8 ohm head into this in the stereo mode, I will only be running through 2 speakers? I'm thinking of picking one of these up, so any replies are much appreciated. Thanks!

    Probably Blue Marvels by Eminence. That's what they used in the Classic Series.

    Thanks, I'll check out the Peavey forum to confirm the Blue Marvels.

    Another question: if this 4x10 cabinet is 16 ohms in mono and 8 ohms in stereo, can it be rewired to be 8 ohms in mono (using all 4 speakers)? I'm presuming using it "as is" with an 8 ohm head means I would switch it to stereo, plug into 1 input and then only use 2 speakers. But can I rewire it to run in mono using all 4 speakers configured to be an 8 ohm cabinet?

    Do you have the same cabinet, that is the Classic 410E? If so, then mine must be the same. Do you know what the impedance value of those Blue Marvels is?

    Sorry for the lateness, they're 16 ohm.

    No worries, thanks! This would actually work for my purposes because I can rewire the speakers in parallel for a 4 ohm mono cabinet.
