I Need help matching my cab to a head

  1. i have a hartke VX410. It handles 400watts at 8 ohms.

    I was wondering what kind of head i should get. I'm looking into the behringher bx3000t which has 300watts at 8 ohms.

    What do you think. I play generic rock/punk, and occasionally jazz
     
  2. i own the behringer it does not put out 300 watts at 8 ohms it puts out 180 watts at 8 ohms. but it does put out 300 watts when at 4 ohms. this means that if you get the behringer it willonly push about 180 watts through the cab. but if you get another cab say a 1x15 so it will be a 1x15 under a 4x10 it will then convert to 4ohms. but remeber oth cabs have to be 8 ohms.
