Hi guys

Have the choice of picking up one of the following used 2x12 caba.
To be used with my splawn nitro and 6505+
I currently have elmwood 4x12 with v30s but its to big.

My choices:
Orange ppc212 closed back v30
Mesa 1/4 open back with black shadows
Mesa closed back v30

Which should I go for?

Cheers

I'd go with orange, but check out avatar speakers when you get a chance

The mesa and the orange are pretty close.

I personally like the sound of the mesa better, so that's what I'm going to recommend. You'll be fine either way.

Thanks, I only have the mentiomed to choose from. We never see second hand avatars and they cost the same new as an orange new.

I loved my Orange cab with my 6505+, however it is a very reasonable suggestion to avoid V30 with your Splawn. I believe mid frequencies are incredibly important, so having too much mids doesn't sound like an issue which can't be dial'd out with the Splawn's EQ. I see no issues with that, but it may bother others depending on your personal taste for guitar tone.

Splawns do not like V30's, get a cab with G12h30 or g12m25 type speakers

where do you live that avatar cost the same as Orange?
