Hey guys.

Basically I'm buying a Bugera 333xl, the shop only has the head though and no 2x12 cabs, only the 4x12s.

A 4x12 is useless to me:P Now my question is, would any 2x12 cab work with the 120w head, or only certain ones? The guy said he could phone Bugeraand order the combo but it wouldn't be here for christmas

Aslong as the cab is rated at a minimum wattage of 120w and the Ohms match the output from the head, you're golden.
#3
So if I can find a 212 with a minimum wattage of 120w and match the Ohms I'm good to go with the head?
Is this gonna be hard to do?:P

'We added Impedance switching to match virtually any speaker cabinet, from 4, 8 to 16 Ohms.'

Does this mean as long as the cab can handle 120 watts any one at all will do?

So long as the cab runs at anywhere between 4-16ohms then yes

It can handle almost any cab. You just have to set the impedance switch acordingly and you're fine.

i.e the Bugera 4x12 is 200watts

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

orange cabs are rated 120 watts at 16 ohms, any 2x12 with celestion v30's will handle that head. if you live in the states you can something similar to the orange cab for half the price at www.avatarspeakers.com.

Downsizing from a 4x12 to a 2x12 won't really allow you to open up your amp more. If you have an amp that sounds like **** at low level volumes, it will continue to do so no matter what cab. Also...it isn't even that much louder. The only big difference is the fullness.

I have both a 2x12 and a 4x12 and I have problems with the 2x12 slightly overpowering the 4x12 so I have to turn down the volume on the 2x12 channels a bit.

On their own, they both sound amazing at low volumes...because it is the AMP that sounds good at all volumes...

not at all, done it for years. just use overdrive pedals and keep the volume low. I never even used an attenuator either. it can be done.

Tell me, honestly, do you have problems with reading comprehension? Or perhaps you just didn't read the TS's post.
