Right now I have a Peavey Envoy 110 Combo amp that I'm playing on but I'm looking for more volume. The combo amp is only 40W and I'm looking for something to play shows with. I don't feel like spending too much money though and I was wondering how good of an idea it would be to get an Ibanez IS412C cabinet and just run the combo amp into it

A bigger cab will make very little difference to the volume, you'd be better off with a new amp.

If you really like your amp's tone, I'd buy a 1x12 cab with a very sensitive speaker like a Celestion V30 or Eminence Red Coat in it - or better still, get a new amp. Solid states tend to sound a bit nasty at near full volume.

I'm fine with the tone my amp gives me, but i just want it louder. Are you sure throwing the amp on top of a 4X12 cab wouldn't give me that?

Look at it this way, it's a 40 Watt Amp, with 1 speaker.

Hook it to a 4X12 Cabinet, you now devide the Watts between 4 speakers.
So each speaker will be running at 10 Watts.


So 1 speaker at 40 watts, or 4 speakers at 10 Watts??

You might have a SLIGHT improvement, but not negligble. And certainly not worth the cost of the cabinet...
