I think you are wrong on the rated solid state wattage, it should be 300 watts into 4 ohms and 150 watts into 8 ohms. With that said, you would probably want to look for a 4 ohm cabinet, but those are not real plentiful. This is the way it works, 2 X 8 ohm cabinets hooked in parallel yield a 4 ohm load. The trick is to not have too many speakers in each cab. 300 watts is not a lot of power if you try to push 2 4X10 speakers at 8 ohms each and 150 watts pushing a 4X10, 8 ohm cabinet is just not gonna get it done. Try looking for a single 15" cabinet at 8 ohms and see what you think. Trial and error is the best way. Maybe you can take the head to a music store and try out some different cabs. Best way to know for sure.
