I found a amp head in my basement with a cabinet from the 60's, i got the head working and the cabinet, but i would like to replace the cabinet because it is giving some weird feedback. it has a minimun watt rating 200 and a max of 600. i got this info off the back off the amp head. i would like a peavey cabinet.

Cabinet feeding back? Cabs themselves don't cause feedback, but the (normal,) amplified sounds from them can be picked up by a guitar's microphonic pups or something (unintentionally) microphonic in the amp that completes a feedback loop => howling at some frequency. If it's happening with NO guitar plugged into the amp, then it's most likely something is wrong with the amp to cause the problem.

the feed back is not bad i fixed that, but the speakers cracks and i have to fix it with toilet paper and glue.

If the speaker cone is cracked then just replace the speaker. As long as the cabinet is in good condition and was well built it should be fine. This way you can choose the speaker yourself rather than the cabinet manufacturer.

As for the wattage requirements I would make sure that you are reading it right. 600 seems a bit high for audio output rating. That might instead be the electrical wattage that the amplifier consumes to produce whatever audio level it does. Do you have any photos of the labels? What's the amp brand and model?

Does it look like this?

If so it's a classic solid state bass amp.

sort of it has a volume bass treble speed reverb and intensity knob and has 4 channels, it still works, great i just use a distortion pedal to adjust gain, i don't have the money to get a new head and cabinet so i am still going to use it even though it is a bass amp.

Uh - if it has reverb then you've got a guitar amp. You should be able to get some nice loud cleans out of her, and using a good distortion box sounds like a capital idea
