well i got the Orange Dual Terror today. and will get the Tweaker whenever it is off of backorder (have been waiting months). and have a dilema: what speaker cabinets should i get.

* i need two 1x12" cabinets. or 1 2x12" cabinet.
* max budget $520.
* i need the speakers to sound good with either amp.
* i need the cabinets to look visually appealing with either head.

here are my three options.

Egnater Tweaker 1x12" Cab. has G12H30, partial open back. $250 x 2 = $500pros: would be a perfect match for the tweaker tonally and visually
cons: i dont know how well a G12H-30 would sound with an Orange Dual Terror.

Egnater Rebel 1x12" Cab. Celestion Elite 80, ported. $280 x 2 = $560 (not sure if i want to stretch it that much)

pros: would maybe sound better with the Dual Terror, although i know nothing about a Celestion Elite 80.
cons: $30 more than the Tweaker Cab, Tweaker not look as good with it.

Orange 2x12" Cabinet. 2x Vintage 30's = $520

pros: vintage 30's would sound good with either amp. good curb appeal, perfectly matches the orange, would look cool with the wicker and the tweaker, classy.
cons: 62 lbs. wait longer to buy because i can't get one at a time.

Egnater 2x12 Tourmaster cabinet. 2 Celestion Elite 80's, $450

pros: cheaper than the orange. match the tweaker somewhat
cons: who knows about Celestion Elite 80's???

You should consider Avatar cabs. You can get a 2x12 loaded with Celestions of your choice for around $350. They have a special going on now for the 2x12 cabs. Just click on guitar cabs, then the traditional series, then on the G212 custom to see the specials - http://www.avatarspeakers.com/

IIRC gregs1020 has an Orange PPC112 that he likes with his Tweaker. I forget what it's loaded with but it should sound good with either amp.

the ppc112 is a fantastic cab. probably the best 112 i've played. the 212 is great too but i'd rather have a zbest i think.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

I've never played the ZBest with a dirty amp. How does it hold up? Granted I've only played a few Z's, I just used a used Germino that was around when cranking up the Mazerati GT and Route 66.

Why not get the orange PPC112 and egnater tweaker 112.

At least that way you can try the heads with different speakers and theyll both look good.

because i refuse to pay $370 for a 1x12" cab. i would like the two cabs to be matching too., even if the heads don't perfectly match.

i am thinking egnater tweaker 1x12" or orange 2x12"

i will look into avatar some more.

greenback! that's what's in my ppc112.

TS - lopoline has a sale this weekend on cabs. john got a 1x12 for $135 i think. you could probably get 2 1x12s with speakers for your budget.

also, i played it through 311's avatar 212, which has a lead 80 and a g12h and it sounded great.

either way for 2 speakers i'd go with a g12h and a greenback honestly.

i don't think the stock cabs are as nice as what you would get from orange, avatar or lopoline. that lopoline is a good deal this weekend, really good deal. call them.

the orange ppc is worth it. it's better then most other 112s. Most 112s that are better then the ppc are more expensive.
