How many of you use a 2x12 cab for live shows and how many of you use a 4x12?


thanks for your input


If you choose "other" please elaborate

You don't need a 4x12. a 2x12 is big enough.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

depending on the size and if on the day i decide to look ''cool'' ill have a 4x12 , but if its a small gig ill stay with the 212

Awesome please keep the responses coming, i think this info is useful to people trying to decide what to buy.

I use whatever I get, right now the only thing I have is a 60w 112. If I'd have a choice I'd go for a 2x12, if you'd ever need more volume than that you'd probably just mike it up.
hmm... how about two 2x12 cabs? (nothing but aesthetics in mind)

2x12. If you NEED a 4x12, you probably NEED a pa system. And if thats the case, a 2x12 would do just fine. Plus they are a bit cheaper.

I chose all of them... just because I could

I only have 4x12s... so I guess that means I can only use 4x12s.

No one needs 4x12s, PA system or not - it's simply a different sound. I love the 'big' sound, the only reason I'm not currently using a Plexi with a 4x12 is limited space/weight in the band transport.

How would a 2x12 with g12k100's compare in sound to a 4x12 with g12-t75's?
