I have made two other posts in the past two months on this subject but they were no entirely focused and drifted.

What is a good 1*12 cab for heavy rock when I pair it up to a ht-5, frostbite flanger and EMG 81 and 60?

The smaller the better and it needs to be easy to carry.

Cheers!

Whoo. an ENGL. I thought they were so much more. Ill might get one and then full stack it after i got the headphones the I NEED.

Thansk. ILl get rid of this soon unless anyone has anything else to throw into the mix?

I believe the difference between the pro and normal models is the speakers. But I'm not entirely sure.

Mesa 1x12?



Hm. Ill probably pass on that because of 2 things - 1 its cheaper and i am a kid with no steady work.

2. It is rated higher and that to me, please correct if wrong, means that it is made for use into a higher watt head. Not like a ht5

EDIT: portability: as in carry around! da smaller da better

1. You mean it's expensive.

2. All cabs are always rated higher. It doesn't matter what wattage you put into it, so long as it isn't higher than the cab is rated for. You could run a 1.4w head into a 4x12 capable of amplifying 300w.

Higher rating does not mean its intended for higher wattage use.

The only difference is speaker breakup, and depending on the type of metal, you may not want speaker breakup.

This will also help you increase the clean headroom.

Get an Avatar wide 1x12.....it would be perfect for metal with a Vintage 30 speaker. Of course, I would say just go ahead and get a 2x12 as it might be more versatile (ie loud enough for when you want it, but also excellent when quiet...plus that way you can combine speakers)
#16
If you get the Engl, get the Pro.
The V60 is Celestions cheeper version of the vintage 30 speaker.
Same power rating, not as high quality though.
The $40 difference is worth it.
#17
Thansk for the info - shows how little i know.

In your opinion how much harder is a 2*12 to transport that a 112?

EDIT: I knew that there must have been one difference...

I am still liking the ENGL and mesa, ill have to hear them to make my mind up!

Mesa is extremely expensive in the UK. Just so you know, it'll probably end up costing more than the ENGL.

#20
Not to Hijack your thread or anything BUTTTT.....

Do you already have the Frostbite Flanger? How is it? I was thinking of ordering one from PGS when they get back in stock but I wanted to know if it was worth it first.


On topic: I'd say get the ENGL before the Mesa because of the crazy prices of Mesa in the UK. I would also get a 212 because that way you dont need to upgrade when you get another head and you can have killer sound now.
Sig What?

A 2x12 isn't that hard to carry, it's just a bit cumbersome. It's sure as hell easier to carry than my 75 pound (34kg) amp head though (the amp itself doesn't have an even weight distribution). My 2x12 is actually 70 pounds by itself (or so the Vader site says), but it feels a LOT lighter than my head. I'm sure the ENGL wouldn't be any heavier (it'd probably lighter).

Are we talking scooped Mettalica metal or smiley Slayer metal?
Would you consider going 110?

If 110, then get the Eminence Legend 1028k
If 112, then get the Eminence Black Mountain

House it an Avatar cab.

2x12s aren't much more to carry around and the difference is huge. Not until a 4x12 will it get cumbersome. 1x12s tend to sound kinda boxy.
