    ok, keep in mind im just a drummer

    i bought a bass amp for the band, think i bought a decent amp
    i got a hartke HA5000
    from what ive heard its pretty good
    250 W per side at 4 ohms
    170 W per side at 8 ohms

    and the cabinet i bought is a hartke vx 410a (400 W at 8 ohms)

    now, my question for u guys

    im wanting to buy either a 15'' or an 18'' speaker to go with that
    but none of the hartke 15's or 18's r just 400W
    would it be ok if i bought a 15" speaker at 300W to use with this?
    would everything work ok that way?

    please help me im just a naive drummer

    Buy the 15; everything will be OK. The power rating is the point at which the speaker starts melting wires internally; there is no need to have that matched to your amp (except you want the speaker to have a higher power rating if possible).
