    could someone explain this to me?

    150W continuous, 250W programme

    does it mean this cab can take 250watts max?

    pardon my denseness!

    It means that the cab can be used with an amp that delivers up to 250wrms to it - as long as you make sure the "clip" light on the amp does not light!

    program is nothing...
    rms is what you watch....

    and you can run 1000 watts into that cab and be fine....just make sure it doesn't clip..but the power the more head room..and that leaves more room till the amp will clip..

    150w Continuous is exactly what it says - The cab can take 150w of continuous power.
    250w is basically the peaks in the signal that it can handle.

    moparpunk281 is right - its really the RMS/continuous rating that is what you should be looking at...

    Hope that made sense - its quiet late here... ;)
