Is it a bad idea to use:
- a 120 watt, 4 ohms amp head
Linked to:
- a 100 watt, 8 ohms 4x12" cabinet?

Or can i safely do that?

You can, presuming you don't crank the amp (unlikely)
As long as the head's ohms are lower, it won't blow

thats really not a good idea. you are mismatching impedances and the power rating of the cab is below that of the head. i mean you can do it at low volumes but i wouldnt. getting a cab that works for you amp is always the best option.

depends on the kind of amp too though. If it's solid state, and it's rated at 120W @ 4ohm, using an 8ohm cab will reduce it's power in half.

is it easy enough to rewire the amp to 4?
