    Fender Bassman 400 Head
    and
    Ampeg SVT410HE Cabinet

    I'm confused about something, the Ampeg says it can handle at 400W. That's maximum right? The Fender head is only 350 Watts.


    Also, any other recommendations on heads and cabs are welcome.
     
  2. If you don't push the head into clipping, it should be fine.

    The Ampeg probably handles 400 W RMS, which means it can handle it over a longer period of time.
    Peak power can be significantly higher.

    You setup should work ok.
