Bass Head

can someone explain to me how watts and ohms work in this scenario? im buying a new bass amp?

ok so im looking to buy a bass head and cabinet. the head im viewing can pump out 450 watts into 4 ohms and it says (4 ohms minimum load) and the cab im looking at works at 8 ohms. does that mean that these 2 are not compatible with each other or will i just get less then 450 watts out of the speaker? anyone have advice on a good combination of head/cabinet i should get?

You can use the 8 Ohm load without problems, so long as it can handle 225 Watts.
The power is a function of the applied voltage and the load resistance (Power = voltage squared divided by resistance). Since your applied voltage will remain the same, and the load resistance will be halved, the power delivered to the load will be halved.
As the listener, you will hardly notice this difference in power. It sounds like a big drop, but it is only 3 dB.
