    I have a chance to get a GREAT deal on a GK2001RBII, which puts out 540W @ 8 ohms. I have a 400watt SWR 8 ohm cab. The question is, can I safely run this combo provided I be careful in regards to master volume?

    Absolutely you can.

    You may have heard this before, but you're far more likely to damage your speakers with an underpowered amp than an amply-powered one.

    Jump on the great deal, and have fun.
