So Im gonna sell my peavey windsor, cuz its just too damn loud. And I'm gonna get a peavey classic 50. But im torn between which size to get, 212 or 410?

What do you guys recommend?

Check my profile to see the kind of music I like and tell me your conclusion.


Where do you play?

IMO it won't make a huge difference to tone, so I'd go with the 212 because it's easier to transport.

I say the 2x12. The 12 inch speakers will have more low end, and be a bit more "open" if you know what I mean. The fact that they are bigger makes up for having only 2 speakers. I would go with the 2x12.

actually the 4x10 will have more low end...


and more mids too right ? i've always been under the impression that the bigger the speaker the less mids it has. true ?
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

2X12. If you decide to replace the speakers you have more options than the 4X10. The 4X10 pumps out more bass though if that's what you're after.

i would get the classic 30 because downgrading from 100 to 50 watts is still pretty damn loud

07 Fender American Deluxe Strat
07 Fender Custom Telecaster
09 Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster
09 Fulltone OCD V.4
10 Ibanez WH-10 V.2
09 Splawn SuperStock
10 Jet City JCA-20
97 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

12's have the weight... 10's cut thru the mix.

if you get the 10's be ready for "hey man.. can you turn it down a little?"
#11
The 410 will weigh a lot, according to Musician's Friend, 63 lbs.

Honestly, 100 watts to 50 watts isn't much of a downgrade in loudness. If you'd like to be able to crank it a bit more, go with the Classic 30 112.
#12
212 if you ask me. I honestly think a 4x10 is overkill and not very realistic. 2x12s are hard enough to transport by itself, and 4x10s are just huge!

2x12 will have a bit more bottom end, but 4x10 has it's own unique sound too. Try both and see which you like better. If both: 4x10 with a 2x12 cab on the bottom Based on your favorites list, I'd go with the 2x12. Metal/hard rock=more bottom.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

its already been mentioned, but both of those amps will still be really damn loud.

maybe an amp within the range of 15-20 watts would be better??

what kinda stuff are you playing?

^ It IS possible to turn the volume knob of a 50 watt amp below 10, you know I run my RM100 head at bedroom levels and it's just fine. Mind you, it has individual channel volumes AND a master...

Truth be told. I hate picking up my DeVille 410 and loading it in my truck just to go to band practice for a few hours. It weighs more than my 10 year old brother.

ah.
actually it won't
I'm not sure why you're under that impression?
There is a reason subwoofers are like, 18 inches.
Better bass frequency handling.

ps.
i'm sure you'll manage.
I once lifted a blackface twin 4x10.
talk about freakin heavy.

so.. he could just do that on his 100 watt windsor too then? xD

i just think its funny that he finds his windsor too loud for his bedroom, so he's gonna get a 50 watt 2x12 or 4x10 instead xD

its ok to admit if one just has GAS.

EDIT:

oops, hes not playing in his bedroom. i got his post mixed up with yours shinozoku lol

The windsor only has one pre and post. Not a pre and post AND a master.

Plus a 212 will be pushing alot a less sound than a 412.

Dude, i thought the post volume on amps was just to level out volume differences between channels?
