Too much power?

    I'm planning to buy a Hartke 3500 head with Yamaha BBT410 cab.
    The specs i've found in internet tell me this:

    Hartke 3500 head - 350 W @ 4 ohm, 250 W @ 8 ohm.
    Yamaha BBT 410 cabinet - supports 300 W @ 4 ohm.

    Do you think i can damage the cab giving too much power from the head?

    Excuse me this simple language, i'm not english nor american. :)

    finally, and due to versatility, i bought the yamaha BBT-500 head (500 W @ 2ohm) with the yamaha BBT-410 cabinet (4x10, 250 W @ 4 ohm).

    my question now is...
    if i get another cabinet, 1x15 for lower freq., working @ 4 ohm, will i get the maximum 500 W from the head?
