hello, im ugrading from a model amp ( peavey vypyr 30 ), and am looking into getting a peavey 6505 amp head. now i understand i need a cab, but i dont know which one to get, the differences between them, and mort importantly, how they work. if anybody can clear this up for me it would help a lot. id like it to be under 500, more in the 300$ range would be good. but im open to suggestions. like i said, i dont know what to expect with this situation

Avatar cabs are pretty good for the money.
Orange cabs are AWESOME but I don't think that youll get anymore than a 1x12" with that budget. How many speakers do you want? Jet city cabs are also decent.

Depending on your area a used Mesa reto 2x12, Orange PPC 2x12, Engl 2x12
Avatar and Whitebox are also good, if your in the USA

the Bugera 2x12 is suprisingly good for the money and you can always upgrade one or both of the speakers later on to Vintage 30's if you prefer.

Used Marshall 1960 cabs usually go for $350. They have V30's, which sound amazing with the 6505.

actually most 1960's have G12T75's in them. And most users here have said those don't sound the best with the 5150/6505 amps.

Yep, you'd want to look at the 1960av or bv cabs if you want V30s. That or go with a 1960 with pairs of gt12t75s and V30s in an X config?

Didn't know that. Most of the 1960's I've seen on craigs list have V30's. Thanks for correcting me though

1960s have came with all sorts of speakers, standard newer ones will have the g12-75ts, old school ones have the g12-65s... You also get different models with greenbacks and vintage 30s. The v30 model is quite popular so you do see it pop up used quite a lot.

yes that is true, I was just refering to the newer ones most people have bought and are re-selling.

Tell the guy you're buying your used 6505 head from how bad his matching 6505 cabinet is and get it almost for free, because it really isn't that bad and you can swap out a speakers later if you decide you really don't like it.
