Obviously putting a 200W head on a 50W speaker would not be a good idea...but what about the other way round? would putting a 50W head on a 200W speaker damage it still/sound crap? or would it be perfectly fine?

Yeah, along theses lines. (sorry to hijakc thread, but I had a similar question)

I was looking at a 2 speaker cab, 250 each, making 500 all together right? Does that mean it'd hold a 300w head?

As long as the ohms can match up.

There are no problems in that at all. Most cabs (4x12s) are rated 280+watts. If all the guitarists had 280watt all tube heads...well...we would all most likely be dead.
