Hey guys.. I plan to get a Blackstar HT-5 Head but i wanna know what cab i should get for it.. also are cabs the kind of things you have to go and try out or do they all sounds pretty similar? (Im a newbie when it comes to cabs and heads as i have always had combos)

Thanks

You should try out cabs, but if you can't, you can't, you know?

Try and get a Framus 212. I'm not exactly sure what's available in Australia.

The most important part of a cab is the speakers inside (it just a few pieces of wood). Pick out speakers you like, and then buy the most expensive cab you can afford, usually build quality is directly linked to price point.
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva
Ask me about any of this stuff!

Speakers are important but the wood and build quality play a huge role in sound as well. You could easily build one with minimal cost and maximum quality/customness if you have the woodworking know-how.

I'd build my own cab..

Here in NH, my local store sells cabs of all sizes that are pre-cut. Like theres nothing in them. They aren't fabricated, no speakers or anything. You could buy a 4x12 cab for like $50-75, slap 4 v-30's in, wire it up and you're off. It's so much cheaper then buy cabs that have been proffesionally made. But sometimes that's a smarter move rather then build one if you don't trust yourself.
Gear:
-2008 Gibson Les Paul Studio Cherry Sunburst w/ Alnico Pro II
-Marshall JCM2000 DSL 401
-Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
-Blackstar HT-1 mini stack

All you need really is some 3/4" plywood (good stuff) with screws, glue, and some 3/4"x3/4" poplar for internal bracing. Cut out a hole in the front and voila! you have yourself a speaker cab.

Protip: Here are some 2x12 dimensions that you and your dad could easily use to get something good. Grab a couple WGS speakers and you should be set.
