Hi all,
I'm looking to buy a speaker cab soon/or build one.
MY options are:
1. Eminence-red coat loaded 1x12
2. An 2x12 cab but only one speaker installed (eminence red coat)
3. A Laney 4x12 (LX412). Its got Rocket 50s in it.
What do you think would be my best choice?
I play hard rock, classic rock, classic metal, a tiny bit of modern stuff through a JCA22h.
Thanks.

What about a Harley benton g212 vintage loaded with celestion vintage 30s? It's amazing for the price (€178)

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.

Of the options you listed, get the 2nd one and load up the 2nd speaker later when you have more money.

Budget- 300 USD approx


i'd go with the 2x12 and load with the another speaker when you get the cash. i like 1x12's, but if you play harder music you'll want the extra speaker headroom and projection area of a 2x12. plus a 2x12 allows you to mix 2 different speakers to help fill out your tone more.

there is a billion people in your country, far from a back water society, is it hard to get guitar gear there? do you live in the country, away from cities?

i mean, aussies are on a island dessert surrounded by killer jellyfish, and they have a population less than Texas so i could understand why they can't get gear but i'd think India would have a fairly good music equipment market.

The equipment available in the country is either extremely low end or very high end. No medium-range stuff available. On one end we got people with Spiders, MGs, Cubes and the other end are the guys with JCM800s, 6505s, maybe even a Soldano, Bogner or Axe-Fx.
I'm guessing the 2x12 is my best bet.
Is the Laney LX412 really bad?

EDIT: I almost forgot. Customs and duties is around 40%, shipping prices are high, so prices are almost doubled.

Yes, the LX is the solid state line's cab. And Rocket 50s are pretty bland...

Go with the 2x12 and load it up with another speaker later on.
