Hi to everybody, i have a question for you:

I'm a guitarist, i have a fender bassman 50 head 4ohms output, 60 watts circa and a mesaboogie 1x12 cab with electrovoice black shadows 200 watts 8ohms.
Does the ohms difference can give serious problems to the head?
should i buy a 100 watt head to let run wild my mesa cab?
please, please.....answer me....i'm in trouble..
thx a lot

Match the ohms, and make sure that the cabinet can handle more watts than the head puts out.

If the ohm and wattage ratings both exceed the ohm rating and power output of your amp, you're fine.

yea, you should be fine, but if it were my gear I would eventually find a more suitable cabinet

Not just in ohms or wattage, but a better matched voice (which I'm sure Gutch means, too).
