While he's talking about an MG cab, a 4x12 with G12H30s would also be 120W.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

That's a really crappy cab. Kind of a waste of money if you already have a smaller cab.

I have one of those lead 12's...

If you want to hear it, get it off the floor. If you use it upright, the bottom cab is aimed at your shin and the top cab is aimed just above the knee, nowhere near your ears... Put the cabs side by side on a table or a leaning back on a couple of chairs so the focal point is aimed at your head.

And buying a 120w 4x12 cab is only going to seem louder because there will be 4 speakers instead of two. You will not have changed from a 12w head so there will be no increase in power output.

You'd be far better off spending your money on a decent used combo.

While I don't condone getting a cab to fix your situation, if you are dead set on getting one, go on craigslist and find one. For the $250 you would spend on a new mg cab you will find a used one that is indefinitely better.

+1, a cab won't you louder. How about a new amp? Budget?
