    Hi,
    someone know what ampeg would tell about her enclosuers when ampeg say program handling?
    In my cabinet, I can read 250Wrms handling, and 500W program Handling. It means that This enclosure can support a 500W head, or what?
    Thank you!

    250 watts Rms means thats what it can handle continuously

    500 watts peak is the max wattage it can handle... i am really not an expert on it..

    You can run a 500 watt amp head through your cab, as long as you don't crank the amp you will be fine...

    A lot of companies say that the amp can be twice as powerful (rms power) as the cab.
