    Would the new Yorkville 400watt XS400H head be underpowered for two 500 watt rated Avatar CB112s?

    The XS400H head has two speaker outputs: Does that mean 400 watts each at 4 ohms or 200 watts each?

    The XS400 total output into 4 Ohms is 400 Watt, 250 watts into 8 Ohms.. so if the impedance of each cabinet is 8 Ohms then the total would be 4 ohms, 200 watts each. I hope that helps you.
