great OP


I'd say anything of decent quality and Celestion Vintage 30s (for starters) would work well me thinks.

New? - I'd say take a close look at Avatar cabs. I was very happy with my 212. The quality was great for $400. A Mashall cab, like a 1960a, would work too. I hear the 5153 cabs are awesome. I played on one briefly - but like 10 minutes. If you have extra cash and want something really nice I'd also look at Splawn, Mills Acoustic, Emporer and Port City. Mesa, Orange, Vadar and Egnater might be some others to consider.

These might work for you too-

i'd strongly consider this and put a couple greenbacks and ET65s in an X layout.

if you aren't up for the work that would take, the 1960A cab would also work well.
the 75s are actually a decent match up to an 800. (regardless of the hate they get here).

V30s would be good too, they just aren't my personal favorite speaker, ymmv.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I'm not super high on Vintage 30s either. I'd much rather have

a. some of their other speakers (Celestion)
b. warehouseguitarspeaker.com clones (Veteran 30)
c. avatarspeakers.com Hellatone 60s (broken in Celestions V30s)
d. splawn small blocks
e. something from scumback
f. something from Eminance (Tex heats, Man O War, Legends, etc)

Wow thanks for the suggestions, so far I've been impressed highly by the Egnater Tourmaster 4x12's and the Avatar Vintage 4x12's.
