What cabs could the Epiphone Valve Junior plug into if I needed it to have more volume for gigs etc.? (there are 4, 8, and 16 ohm speaker inputs on the back) Are there any restrictions on speaker size seeing as the its only 5w?
#3
i don't think there are restrictions but it might have trouble driving a 4x12 cab. but i could be wrong. just seems like a very small amp to be driving higher wattage speakers.

5w head driving at least 120w worth of speakers

it's not going to be any louder driving a 412.

A 4x12 pushes more air, which gives the perception of a slight increase of volume. But in my experience, I have found 5watters to not be loud enough for gigs and such. You would need a 15w at the very least.

not really any restrictions... it has 4, 8 and 16 ohm taps (which the vast majority of guitar cabs are), and not too many cabs can't handle 5 watts.

but as said already, it's only going to be a marginal increase in volume. unless you're currently running it with a ridiculously inefficient speaker and use a cab with a ridiculously efficient one.

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.

I've used a VJ with a 4x12... Worked fine.

or at least, i wasn't that fussed on the tone but that was due to the speakers (v30s) not suiting teh style of amp rather than due to anything inherently wrong with a 4x12.

I had my Vj on a 4x12 right next to my drums and it still couldn't keep up. Over drums all you heard was a buzzing sound, regardless of what I played.
