I might be acquiring a cabinet from a friend of mine (for services rendered, best way to pay for things IMO).

I don't have a head, and to be quite honest, I don't plan on putting money down on a new head at the moment.

I do have a Crate FXT65 that I know has an external speaker jack, and I'm wondering if I can use that in the meantime. What I want to know is, is there anything specific I need to be aware of before I just go ahead and plug the the cab into the Crate? Unfortunately, I don't have the specifics on the Crate at the moment, and all I currently know about the cab is the following:

4X12
400W
8 ohm

Can I pretty much use any cab with the Crate? Or are there very strict specifications I need to stick to to prevent either the Crate or the cab from "blowing up?"

Please don't respond with "OMG TEH AMP SUX!" or "BUY <insert model here>."

You just have to make sure that the ohms match up. I'm pretty sure if you have a 8 ohm or 16 ohm output on your crate you can just hook it up.
