Appropriate wattage cab for bass head

I have a 700 watt bass head, is there a minimum wattage cab that it'll go into or is it just minimum ohms?

What kind of amp is it..... model/brand? I know this sounds like a stupid question but it will help in getting a correct answer.

500 watts into 8 ohms
700 watts into 4 ohms (4-ohm minimum load)

You can run any cabinet as long as it's rated at 4 ohms or above. But if it will only handle 100 watts of power you're not going to be able to push the amp to it's limits...... Did you have a cabinet or speaker combination in mind?
