I've always used b52 cabs and have received countless compliments on my sound.

I'm sure it depends on the model though as some probably have different speakers.

I have however had issues with one cab, where 3 speakers blew out. But i have a 2 other cabs that have seen a fair share of shows

2x12 is a better option imo


Great, you seem to post this in every thread regarding a 4x12 cabinet. You didn't even answer his question, so keep your opinion to yourself. Or better yet, create a 2x12 aficionado group so you can preach there.

I've personally never heard a b-52 cab in person, although from the different range of cabs the "best" out of the 3 seems to be the one loaded with v30's (to my ears).

4x12 is heavier and harder to move around to gigs, let alone, get inside a vehicle.

If the cab has bad stock speakers, replacing 4 is 2 times the cost of replacing 2 in a cheap 2x12.

There isn't a noticeable sound or volume difference at all, unless you are playing somewhere un-mic'd, in which case it still wouldn't make that much of a volume difference, it will just project a bit more.

A 2x12 just always seems the most practical for the money, and you don't have a ton of money to throw around. And most gigs will mic your amp, so it won't matter if you had a 2x12 or 4x12

you have a great point on the cost there especially if they need replacing, however i could care less about moving it around and i got a mini van, pickup and a trailer so space aint an issue. i got a furniture dolley im gonna use to lug my shit around regardless if its a 2x12 or 4x12

Yeah, you got the transportation down at least.

It will be hard to find a decent 2x12 at that price range anyways, just because it seems cheap 4x12s are much more common.

Ultimately, I say save up and get an Avatar or Whitebox 2x12 loaded with V30s

I think Whitebox has a sale on their Classic series of 2x12s for $250, but I think they are empty cabs, unfortunately.

If you are shopping based of looks just stop looking for a cab now.
