  1. Pretty much says it all. Ohms and wattage confuse me to no end. Picked up the cab cheap and I just want to find out if I'll have any issues. Guys in the store weren't of much help! Thanks all!
  2. Most likely fine if an 8 ohm cab. The head is not 800 watts at 8 ohms load.
  3. Cab is 4 ohms. Says 500w continuous/1000w program. I really should understand this stuff, but I don't. Please excuse my ignorance in this matter. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
  4. If you use distortion effects I would be concerned. You can hear speakers complain when you send them too much power, but really hard to tell if you add distortion to the signal before them. With a 4 ohm cab the "thermal" rating of the cab can be exceeded by 300 watts. Play with caution and avoid "volume" wars.
