Just purchased a Spider Valve MkII head, found a damn good deal on a 2x12...I'm curious if that'd be pushing it? I mean it's a 100W head, would a 120W cab be enough headroom?

At home it won't be going past 4 max, during practices and shows it usually around 6 or 7.

You've got more than enough headroom in terms of wattage, and it's a great cab. I've had mine for a few months, very solid and good bass response even though it's only half-closed. You won't be disappointed, especially if you're getting a good deal.

Jump on that before someone else does!

I have a 2x12 Recto cab that's half-back? At least it was advertised as a Recto, haha.

^what does the sticker on the bottom of the speaker jack plate say?

on my rectifier 412 it says something like rec v30 or something. I've never seen an open back rectifier cabinet...but it doesn't look like any of the other open backs on the Mesa site. Maybe it was a custom order

I'm not home, and I don't recall exactly what it says... Now I'm curious too haha. I'll sticky this for myself and have a look when I get home.

Yeah, that's a weird one!

I've never seen a Mesa 2x12 with a 4-jack plate either!

Very cool!!

I want one!!!!

Also, Mesa is known to use 70 watt Vintage 30's in some of their cabs...so the 2x12 may actually be 140 watts.

Is your cab rated at 120 or 140 watts?

Hey guys, sorry about that. I had a look at my halfback cab... It's apparently using the 70-watt V30s as well. Nothing interesting on that sticker though. Who knows, maybe it IS custom, haha. The guy I bought it from is the original owner and bought it "stock," but that could just mean that it was a custom order and that HE hasn't personally modified it.

Interesting. It does look like a rectifier 212 though...aside from the half back anyway.

I really like the sound of the Mesa Boogie Cab, and would like to know more about how its wired inside. I bought a floor model, and did not get any instructions with it so I am kinda clueless as to what is inside. V-30's hooked up in series for 140 watts, is all I know about this cab. I only have one 8 ohm in jack, and the other is for adding more cabs.....??? Thanks for any info on this.....

Man. I'm so jealous right now. The cheapest I could find a Rec 2x12 was $450 on ebay, and I've been looking for awhile.

I went ahead and just bought a Whitebox 2x12 with V30s last night, and with shipping it came to $450.

I hope I made the right choice.
