Nitrobass into Ampeg cabinet question

    Hello all,
    Just picked up a used Peavey Nitrobass head and an Ampeg BSE410HLF cabinet.
    The Nitrobass haed has two outputs and the Ampeg cabinet has two inputs.
    Question is can I connect both outputs to both inputs at the same time?
    I know connecting to just one input results in a 4 Ohm load (300W) cause it is a 4 Ohm cabinet, but will connecting them both knock it down to a 2 Ohm load (450W).
    Or, because the cabinet is rated at 4 Ohms, will this damage the cabinet?

    I'm not sure it would do anything negative, but it won't add to anything. I can't imagine it not doing something negative, but again, I'm not sure.

    The other "input" on the cabinet is meant to daisy chain to another cabinet.

    No point to two cables, one good cable is enough.

    If one of the cables happened to be wired backwards, that might be a problem for the amp.

    No problem for the cabinet, in this case.

    Some other cabinets are biampable, etc. Plugging extra cables in to them might not be a good idea unless you meant to use that feature.

    But the jackplate has the inputs marked....
