I have a Peavey 6505 head with a Marshall AVT slant cab... I'd like to upgrade my cab, but am on a $300-$400 budget (I buy used, so consider that)

So a few inexpensive cabs I found are:

Peavey Supreme XL 412 (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/peavey-supreme-xl-412-4x12-amp-cabinet)

Marshall MA412 (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/marshall-ma-series-ma412-guitar-speaker-cabinet)

Or any other suggestions? Thanks.
instead of a new cabinet you should just replace the speakers in the one you already own
I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes HEY!
If you can hold out $50 more bucks, I'd get a Whitebox 2x12. Or maybe an Avatar 2x12. Unless you absolutely need a 4x12. But you won't find a good one for that price.

And be aware that cab construction and dimensions can change your sound. So a Mesa 4x12 with V30s is going to sound a bit different than an AVT 4x12 with V30s.

DON'T change the speakers in an AVT cab, an AVT cab is tiny compared to a regular 4x12, it will just sound terrible compared to what it should.

At lower volumes the AVT isnt half bad, ive done some good recordings with it. But for the dimensions and particle board construction, its just not worth replacing the speakers.

If you was from the UK id suggest the Harley Benton 2x12 with V30's from thomann, perfect cheap upgrade, perfect speakers for your use.
Just go with something like an Avatar 2x12 or similar, a 4x12 isn't worth the extra money when you could spend less and get a higher quality better sounding, equally loud and easier to transport cab for the same money as a crappy 4x12
Mesa/Boogie Studio Pre | Marshall EL34 50/50 Power | Harley Benton 2x12 V30's

How do you like, your mids in the morning?
^ That'd be the most bang for your buck as that cab costs less than 2 actual V30's.

If you don't live in the UK, thomann.de apparently ships internationally or something, and their shipping is cheap under a certain price.

The total of a shipped Harley Benton 2x12 with V30's is only about $270 according to.... everyone that's done it.

So if you want cheap and good, that's the way to go.

Out of those 2, the Peavey, but I'd suggest saving up more money if you want a good 4x12. The only good cabs that fit your budget are going to be 2x12 or 1x12.
Telling us where you live would be a good plan.

That sounds almost creepy

but yes TS, your location would help us out in finding you a cab for your budget. Prices are different everywhere.

Any comparisons from the AVT to the two cabs that I mentioned above?

Also, I do need a 4 speaker cab
you should save your money and buy a used Mesa or something. you can usually find them on craigslist for $400-$700.
