A 1x12 cabinet is a rather uncommon thing. The only one I know of is Marshall's Model 1912 cabinet. Even 2x12 cabs for guitar are in the minority, but there are a number of them out there. Carvin makes a 2x12 cabinet in their Steve Vai Legacy series; the C212E. It has Celestion Vintage 30 speakers and handles 120 watts RMS at 8 ohms. It goes for about US$450.00. Marshall also makes a 2x12 cabinet called the 1922 and its higher-end brother, the Model 1936. They are both 8 ohms mono (16 ohms stereo). I don't know what they are selling for right now.

I am sure there are others. Check some of the manufacturers' websites and see if what they offer meets your needs.

Mesa makes a 1x12 which I believe has a v30 in it. As well you could grab an Orange 1x12, same v30.

If you go for a Marshall 2x12 grab the 1936. I used to have one and only sold it for my 4x12, otherwise I would have kept it. I really like the G12T-75 speakers though. Lots of people on here will they you they're 'junk.'

No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

I took a look at some websites. The Marshall and Mesa cabinets are both 8 ohms. The Orange PPC112 is a 16 ohm cabinet. Vox has a V112HTV cabinet at 8 and 16 ohms. If you are intent on 1x12 and 4 ohms, you may either have to get an 8 or 16 ohm cabinet and replace the speaker with a 4 ohm speaker, or else have one built for you. Does anyone know of any 1x12 cabinets that are rated at 4 ohms?
#7
there are not many, and i don't know of any, speakers which are 4 ohm. the only way you will make an 8 ohm 1x12 a 4 ohm is if you wire up an 8 ohm resistor in parallel with the speaker. this would make the cabinet 4 ohm but come to think of it you will need a pretty beefy resistor to handle the power coming from your amp. also you will be losing power to the resistor.

a 2x12, on the other hand, can be wired to 4 ohms of it has two 8 ohm speakers wired in parallel. hope that helps ya.

so basically i have to get a 2x12 then... ugh

i wanted a 1x12 cuz its lighter and i carry it around a couple times a week

You probably want more then 30W speakers, as your head is 30W RMS. If I were you i would at least get a 50 or 60W cab.
Good 1*12 cabs that I know of:
Bogner
Orange

That's it.
Hufschmid
Blackat
Washburn USA Custom Shop
PRS
Mayones
Orange
Diezel
