if an amp pushes 260 watts at 8 ohms, would i need to buy a cab rated at 260 watts(or more) at 8ohms or 4?

aaaaach i asked a completely different question to what i meant

what i meant to say was...

if i have an amp that pushes 260watts @ 8 ohms and 400watts @ 4 ohms, would my cab need to be rated at 400watts @ 8ohms or 260watts @ 8ohms?

The speaker wattage in the cab and the impedence are two seperate items, speakers have a handling power rating and an impedence figure.

You would need a 4 ohm cab that will handle around the 400 watts from that amp at 4 ohms.

An 8 ohm 250/300 watt cab will allow you to add a second 8 ohm cab for bigger gigs.

260W @ 8-ohms means it's pushing 260W @ 8-ohms....so if you're running through 8-ohms, treat it like a 260W amp. Yes, you'll need that much to hold it. You won't need a 400W cab @ 8-ohms. I'd recommend getting at least a 300W cab.
Nope, no sig here.

okay thanks

can you suggest some decent 115 cabs around that power?
