If you buy a tube bass amp that is 750 watts and then a cab that can handle 800 watts, will it be too much power for the cab? My friend is wondering and I'd rather ask then guess.

The head he wants is on here its the SVT-6PRO and the cab is the SVT-810E on http://ampeg.com/.
The head says
RMS Power Output (8 Ohms): 750
RMS Power Output (4 Ohms): 1100

The cab says
Frequency Response (-3 dB): 58 Hz - 5 KHz
Maximum SPL: 130 dB
Nominal Impedance: 4 Ohms
Program Handling: 1600 Watts
RMS Handling: 800 Watts
Sensitivity: 100 dB
Usable Low Frequency (-10dB): 40 Hz

you should be fine, just don't crank the volume so hard you blow out the speakers. there's a bunch of excess power from the head on the 4 ohm level the cab operates at. but that excess creates a level of overhead that gives a better tone than if you're running at full capacity. like i said, just be careful you don't overload it.

Anyway, it should be perfectly fine. 750W tube is still 750W, regardless of this 'tube louder than SS' malarky

Okay thanks guys. I thought that it'd work but its for our bass player and he is getting a job and saving for it. I said 750 watts is still the same wether its tube or not, but he is paranoid and wanted to hear it from toher people.

The cab is at 4 ohms, however, so the amp can output 1100 watts. Just make sure that he doesn't turn it up past 3/4 of the way and he'll be fine. He probably will never turn it up past halfway anyway.

That amp is Hybrid with a Mosfet output stage and not all tube; the tubes are just a couple of small pre-amp tubes that's all.
I'd like to see you lift a 700 watt all tube amp.
