12" Bass Speakers

I'm primarily a guitarist but am getting a bass soon. My brother's friend leaves his bass amp at my house so I planned on using that or playing through my saffire 6. I'm interested in trying to run it through my guitar amp too though. From what I understand, as long as I use a bass cab the guitar head will be fine. Now, I have a spare 1x12 that I never use because the speaker is awful. Is there a good 12" bass speaker I could throw in there. I know most use 10 or 15, do they even make 12" bass speakers? I can't seem to find many.

I could definitely fit 2 10"ers in there too, maybe a 15", but I'd have to modify the cab which doesn't seem worth it as it's a crap cab.

Yes, a lot of brands make them. Look into carvin, ampeg, ashdown.
Bt seriously, it's easier to just buy an amp and run through it.

Carvin used to attach two of these to a 600-watt monster bass combo, so they should work:

I'd pay the extra for the Neo-D 12" speaker:

All I play for now is 12's Neos.
Since I am in Full Range I will not be dealing with 15's until I hit Meyers cabinets. Yeah, in my dreams.

The undiscosed variable here is the Cabinet, design and material.

Jusging from the lack of information, the novice is best left to his own with 1 low cost 12 and one midline to discover some things for himself.

The difference between the two will reveal if the cabinet is of quality that it will respond to nuances of difference.

Rob, just noting that in the end, this is an opportunity for you to experiment.

The most expensive speaker might be lost in the cabinet, if the cabinet is not of decent construction and material.

My idea is that a test with a Cheap Speaker and a MidGrade Speaker will lead you to a conclusion about whether or not the cabinet will deliver anything to you that you are looking for.

It might be possible to presume that the cabinet has a crappy 12' in it because the cabinet is just mass produced or not very well thought out home made crap. But that is not fair to judge without knowing anything.

It is also not fair for us to direct you to a really high priced Speaker. So, experiment a little, pull one from a cabinet you are using and do a test. Have fun with it.

Alright, I just didn't understand your previous phrasing. Yes, the cab is of lower quality construction, so I don't expect it to sound amazing. I just want something to run my bass through.

Body feels not good, then go to the hospital for examination, the doctor asked X-rayed, X-ray, MD wrote diagnosis, and then I took the diagnosis and film to the doctor.
Surprisingly, the doctors took X-ray diagnosis began shaking his head, his mouth Gee, I was immediately pumped wow cool, want to ask the doctor left how long results that doctors say is: "Oh, now young doctors, the handwriting is really bad."
