    what is the relationship between these two things? when a cab is rated at 400watts handling at 8 ohms what is it rated at at 4ohms ect.?
     
  2. ...If a speaker/cabinet is rated @ 400W@8Ohms, That's all it is...It's fairly unchanging...If your head puts out 400W@4Ohms, then it'll probably be around 275W@8Ohms, because Impedence doesn't change...Rated at one, stays at one...

    I may be wrong...but figured I'd at least try to help...
