    I was recently given a cab with a Big Cat driver (made by eminence)

    It is a 12" driver, and whoever wrote the model number down is a downey :L

    04052010991.

    Is there any way i can find out the wattage myself, like with a multimeter ?

    sure; just keep turning the amp up until the speaker blows, measure the amp's output, then rate the speaker for a little less than that :D

    i don't think there's any other way :(

    ^+1.

    That's the only way unless the EIA code is still visible on the cone and You contact Eminence and ask them about it. At least about 2 years ago they replied within' 2 working days.
