    I have a peavey 400 watt combo/amp
    there is a place in the back of the amp thats for hooking up another cab.. its 125 watts at 4 ohms..
    I was wondering
    If I bought an avatar cab. The 4x10 cab. Its 1200 Watts RMS. Would it be alright to hook up to the amp?
    I thought i knew it would but i read something and now im not sure.
    If you can help then.. thanks alot
    I heard about underpowering and i think if i understood right.. it can damage your stuff.

    There's no such thing as underpowering a cab, not really. Sounds like you should be fine. If you find you have to crank your amp to get near the volume you need, it's time to get a bigger amp. Till then, I don't see a problem.
