the speaker must be able to handle AT LEAST the max power delivered by the amp. overrating a speaker is no cause for concern whatsoever. think of it like using a wire gauge bigger than what you actually need ... the wire will never be used to its full capacity, but there will be no overloads and hence, no saftey issues.

by all means, yes, you can use that 400w woofer in this application. now if you wanted to put a 400w amp to a 123w speaker, that would be a different story!!!

edit: isn't there a speaker forum here? if you post this there you will most likely get more replies.
