ok i've bought a GK BLXIII 1x15 cab and am going to buy the GK Backline 600 head and GK BLX 4x10 cab in the near future. question is: if the backline head is rated at 300 watts at 4 ohms and the cab(s) are 200 watts at 8 ohms is that gonna **** things up? i mean they're the matching cabs for the head.

If it's 300W into 4 ohm it will be about 150W into 8 ohm. You should be apples.
