Hey, I've got a blackstar ht-5h with a home-made 2x10 cab with some ok-ish speakers. The problem is, is that the cab is heavy as shit...and it's really really big.....and I need to upgrade the cab anyway because I think it has something like car speakers in it, meh.

So I'd like a cab that's:

Not too heavy
Sounds good for rock, classic rock, hard rock, metal, crunch (Guns n roses, slash, led zep, black Sabbath)
1x10 or 1X12 speaker
I don't really want a mini stack
The ohm needs to match (don't really know much about this)
£100 max


Thanks, I'll happily answer any more questions you need to know.

Wut??? He has to have a cab nimrod.


I'd go with a 1x12, good bass response, not too heavy, bout 40 lbs.

Look at Avatar cabs, or make a custom one and throw a nice speaker in it like a Vintage 30, or a Emenice Man-O-War.

So far everything mentioned has been out my price range, and I live in England btw so I don't think I can get Avatar cabs and they are expensive. I think I'll just go with the blackstar mini-stack and just use 1 of those cabs when I bring it with me to places. That or I'll buy a vintage 30 and make a cab.

+1 for the 'buy a speaker and build a cab' option.

Yep, that cab is about £200, not £100.

Its actually a terrible waste of money to buy that amp, and not get a cab.

You know...'cause then he can't play it.

Well, in California, people carry around devices that control the minds of bears. So expect to see people walking their bears.

Also, don't be surprised if some robot hookers try to solicit sex to you on the streets.
