Hello people, I am currently in the process of buying a new cabinet to replace my Marshall MG 4x12. Now my amp is a Peavey Triple X. It's very dark sounding, lots of mids, kinda woofy on the bass. ( could be my cab ) I was thinking a cab with v30s would be good, but maybe there is a better choice to even out my sound. Thanks man.

I went with closed back, and two V-30's. An Avatar cabinet. Excellent quality and it really shakes the walls hooked up to my 50 watt tube or 40 watt SS amp. They (Avatar) also sell a convertible cabinet back, but I love my closed back. Lots of low end grunt and thump.

I've actually been looking at Avatar cabs. They look promising, they had one on eBay for around $200-$300 bucks. Avatar put the amp on there since it got a ding in it, if only I would've had the money then.

This is the only part of your post that concerns me, the XXX is usually a very bright amp, a lot of people consider this its biggest flaw. It could just be your cab, but out of curiosity, how do you run your setup (settings, guitar, etc.) ?

I agree you need a new cab, but I just want to figure out if that's the only reason that your amp is behaving "abnormally"
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

Well I just bought an Avatar 2x12. And since the Triple X has an Active EQ I keep my EQ knobs at noon and slightly adjust from there.
