Hey everyone,
I have spent approximately the last year and a half or so playing guitar through my

Randall RG75 combo

I am planning on getting a cabinet but am not sure exactly what my allowances are

On the back of my amp it says "max output:75 watt @ 8ohm and 100watt at 4ohm"


are either of these cabs compatible with my amp

or

and if so which would be better for metal/hardcore?

thank you

What do you hope to gain by adding a cab to your amp? It will also be difficult unless your amp has speaker outs.
#3
it has the 4 ohm and 8 ohm 'external speaker' plugs

I am hoping for slightly more sound and better quality until i can afford a complete half stack

Or could you suggest a mid to low level half stack that would be good for metal/hardcore?

sorry i just dont know a lot about amps and cabs
#4
you'll push more air with more speakers, but the volume won't really be noticeable

and you definitely wont get a better sound with a MG cab they're known to be just as badly built as the combos and heads
#6
why dont i need a half stack?

I am starting to play a few gigs with my band

just at mates parties etc

lookin to play a few more gigs
#7
what do you hope to get from a half stack.
WHY do YOU think that you need a half stack?
only difference between a combo and a stack is the number of speakers and
more speakers =/= more volume
another thing is that all the half stack in you price range are ****. combo is a better alternative with you budget.

Thanks for the advice mate
I have just been under the influence playing through a head and cab would be the better option

I am interested in the Bugera 6260 you linked me to

I read somewhere that they are similar to the peavey 5150

Is this true?
#10
Yeah it's basically a copy of the 5150/6506.
I allso think that it has a better clean tone than the 5150.

So this would be great for playing style similar to parkway drive, no way out, prom queen etc?

I might have to try one out.

whats the difference between the 6262 and the 6260?
#12
6260 = 5150 = 6505
6262 = 5150 II = 6505+

Yeah would be great for those style since a lot of metalcore bands use 6505/5150s.

Also peavey is soon to release the 6505+ combo 1x12 and it'd around the same price as the bugera.

I have a VK 212 combo which I played in front of 300 people.
I had volume on 2 and a little so yeah.... (With PA of course...but which gig with more than 50 people doesn't have PA?)
don't buy the cab, buy a new combo.
I'd buy a half stack only if there would be no combo version of that amp.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

^I know ya'll love the idea of tube torture chambers (combos), but there IS a reason some of us like a 4x12 or 2x12 cab:

1. MUCH easier to carry a head and 2x12 cab, than an 85lb combo
2. A closed back is essential for some extra low end and speaker push...c'mon, nothing like a good resonating 4x12 cab
3. A combo is VERY hard on tubes. Who wants their power tubes inches away from a roaring, flailing speaker...repeatedly?

I like the idea of using a Plamer PDI-03 as a D.I. and speaker simulator. Some of the best mic'd cabs I've ever heard was a PDI-03 DIRECT. I suppose with this application you could great convincing mic'd 4x12 tones with a 212 open back combo.

Maybe my balls are just too big or something. (Or too small some might say!)

as a way of actually answering your question

look into avatar cabs and vader ones, get ones 4 ohm or 8 ohm and with max wattage above either of those. dont look at MG cabs


Never ever seen a vader cab for sale in Australia and Avatar Cabs are not cheap here either.
