Need a good cab to match my 6505+. Metal.

So i just got a mint 6505+ for $600. I consider it a steal. So now i need to shop around for a good cab to match it.

Right now i hear celestion speakers rock. And i see that Marshall 1960As and b-52s can be had cheap second hand. Any other good cabs you can recommend i try out if i see them ? I don't want to spend a fortune, maybe 500$ TOPS unless i have to go out of that range, i'd like to find something used cheap and good if possible.

Ok, theres a third one to look for. I'm actually surprised to hear someone recommend line 6 stuff for big sound.

HAHA. It isn't that bad. I just have a spider IV 75w combo myself, and it sounds awful turned up loud. Like complete mud. But you get what you pay for i guess.

Definitely try to snatch up that Orange cab, TS. I LOVE mine. I've owned a Marshall 1960AV and a 1960BV as well as a few 2x12s from Mesa and some other companies. The Orange is by far my favourite.

You really can't go wrong with anything with V30s. The 1960 has G1275Ts, which aren't very good speakers for most types of metal. What exactly are you playing, and where are you located?

Look for the usual suspects - Mesa Rectifier/Stiletto, Orange PPC412, Avatar 4x12.

Here's a PPC412. You can probably talk him down to $500. http://albany.craigslist.org/msg/3187114916.html
