Any help would be great, thanks
Personally, I don't think you will hear much, if any, boost from the addition of that cabinet. The 4.5XL already has a pretty solid low end. I have seen lots of guys use just one of those and get very loud. If you had one you would likely get more benefit from using it just to elevate the 4.5XL.
I saw a used 410XL at my local GC today for 199 and that would be a much better option I think. Another 4.5XL would be even better. Really though, you should try your 4.5XL and see what you think of it first.
As for blowing that box away, it is easily possible since it only handles 200W and your amp puts out a lot more than that per channel. However, it also has a balance control so you can compensate for that easily. Still, I don't think it is going to keep up with the 4.5XL very well so you would be tempted to turn up and that's when the problems would start.
