    im wanting to get a cab and head and have a few general questions about it,
    can you use a 300w head on a 200w cab if you dont turn it up full?
    can you still use 2 cabs in parralell if they have an impedance of 4ohms each?
    can you use a head and just a 4 x 10 cabinet, or do you have to use a head and a single speaker i.e. a 15" ?
    can you use a lead guitar head on a bass cab with a bass?

    this may not make much sense but owell.

    Yes (but beware of transient spikes)
    If your head can handle 2 ohms
    You can use the 4X10 or 1X15 cabinet the same
    Yes. And you can play the bass with your feet too. (but why?)

    Which head? If the head has a minimum impedance of 8 Ohm then you can't go lower without endangering the amp.
