Some one you might remember the thread where I was asking if I should go for a 18 watt marshall clone or a marshall class 5.

I decided to go for the 18watt plexi
I'd like to get a 1x12 cab for it but I am afraid that they are too small for the head. (I mean in size, wouldn't it look wierd a big head on a small cab?)

Is it only me or they do fit on 1x12 cab?

Heres my AC30 for reference. Yeah, looks a bit odd.


Damn lol, I need a 2x12, I wouldn't be able to stand looking at something like that.
Thanks for posting that pic.

can you get the head in a smaller headshell? that might be worth asking, because if it is possible (certainly some builders offer 18 watters in small headshells), it'd solve your problem.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The head is 24inch wide (with the head cab) so I either need a super lage 1x12 or a 2x12

I am dreaming or this is real life?

http://www.avatarspeakers.com/

The Vintage G112 cab dimensions are 24"W x 20.5"H x 11"D. 3/4 inch Birch Plywood. Weight is approximately 45 lbs depending on speakers.


Damn! It would fit just perfectly!
The 212 is 30' inch wide.

I just need to know if I should do closed back or open back now

If you want that classic 18W blues tone you will want an open backed cab. You'll get more bass but that bass will be looser.

Im looking for an hendrix tone, I've been told that closed back where better for it.
But at the same time, I'd be playing in garages and an open back would distribute de sound more evenly. So I could go with an open back

Took me a few weeks. Life happens and such.
I did a build thread on it:

does avatar do convertible open-closed back cabs? if so, that might be worth considering...

You can buy both open or closed backs from avatar. The extra back is $35 or about.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
#17
^ for the 112 that may only be $15. Great way to go tho

^^ yes Avatar makes a convertible back for their Traditional and Vintage cabs (at least in the 212 config).

I'd get a 212 myself and I can speak to their quality. They are well made, no cut corners (no pun) and have great customer service. Contact Dave there and let him help you decide. I got a closed back Traditional with a G12H30 and a CL80. I sold it to Gregs1020 to fund my Splawn cab.

You may also want to consider Avatar's Hellatone speakers. They are simply broken in Celestion Vintage 30s.


PS: I just re-read that the 112 actually fits you size wise. Do it.

ah sweet. might be worth considering, then, as long as it's not too much of an upcharge.
