By doing that, you effectively restrict yourself to around 150 watts now (1/2 goes to your 80 watt cab) - the 1X10 will be your "weak link" and subject to blowing if you play too loud or hard.
I don't say restricting but would say overpowering. That's likewise many folks call it in a very similar situation.
The situation equals 410 cab 8 Ohm 400 Watt and 15 cab 8 Ohm 160 Watt.
To be honest, nobody talks about restricting
, most of folks talk about overpowering
in this case.
Probably restricting power is to be considered on same speaker size diameters but overpowering is to be considered on different diameters.
But I don't suggest Ohm mismatch on the same speaker diameters anyway.
Hope that helps.
