    I have a SWR SM-400 with an Eden D410t (the rear ported cab) which is 540W. I have the opportunity to upgrade to an Eden D410XLT (the front ported kick ass cabinet) which is 700W.

    Under the assumption that i am not in the position to go buy a kilowatt power amp (unless someone out there has one they want to kick down to me for a deal...):

    Will i have problems running the 700W d410XLT with my measly 540W sm-400??

    help me out.

    No. It'll be fine.
