Axe-Fx W/power amp. Education please!

Hello, all!

First off, I apologize if this specific question (or any like it) has been answered before.

I own an Axe-Fx ultra, and I plan on using a power amp through my Mesa 4x12 Stiletto. A buddy of mine gave me a Crown Xls1000 to use until I can find a deal.
My dilemma is, I know that my cab has a 240 watt power handling and I will be running it 8 ohm mono. There is no impedance setting on the back of the Crown, and I asked about this and was told there would be no problem. Is this true that I can use the three together and not damage the speakers in my cab?

Any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Rock on.

the manual says 215W per 8 ohm-channel, so it shouldn't be a problem as long as you don't bridge both channels.

It'll be fine. Just use one channel. The volume knob taper works differently from guitar stuff though, you'll probably be somewhere at around 8 or 9.5 our of 10 on the knob.
