    I have a GK 1001RB (700W at 4 ohms). Recently, I have been considering getting the North Coast Music T100 cabinet (400W at 4 ohms). First, is it possible to run that amp through that cab without frying the cab. Secondly, what cabinet power rating would you suggest for that amp? Thanks for any help!

    Yes, at moderate volumes probably, and thermal power ratings are mostly irrelevant.

    Displacement-limited power handling is more of an issue, which most vendors will not tell you about, or give specs for.

    You should be okay as long as you aren't pushing the amp too hard. If you hear it distorting turn it down, or consider a different cab.

    If it starts smelling funny, then it's too loud ;)

    its all about "THE POCKET"
    you should be good if you dont turn it too loud....i would just go with 2 410 or an 810 to distribute the wattage fairly. the more speakers you have, the louder it will be, thus being able to fill a concert without having to turn your amp pass 3
