hey guys, heard good things about avatar cabs, I like the way the celestion g12k-100 sounds, anything I should pair it with? or just get 4 of those?
sound I like. metallica, gnr, pantera, motley crue, skid row, alice in chains.

V30s w/ G12K-100s in an X Pattern sound gigantoromous.

hmmm, honestly, a lot of the vids I hear, I don't like v30's, they sounds little harsh, I know I listed bands that basically use just v30's, but its there an alternative that is a little less harsh?

The V30 harshness and the K100 smoothness work really well together.

For what you want I'd recommend the V30 and G12h30 combo, V30 and G12T75 combo or G12m25 and g12h30 combo

hmmmm I see, ok ill give him a call, also, I was thinking, do I really need a 4x12? or would a 2x12 be just as good, what are some of the benefits and disadvantages for both

4x12 Pros:

  • Disperses more sound
  • Is technically "louder"
  • Can handle more wattage


4x12 Cons:

  • Heavy as f***
  • Usually requires 2 people to carry, due to size
  • Usually costs more


2x12 Pros:

  • Smaller and more portable
  • Cheaper
  • You'll likely never get your amp loud enough to hear any difference in volume
  • Generally tighter sounding, due to dimensions


2x12 Cons:

  • Handles less wattage
  • Less sound dispersement
  • "Smaller" sound (less low end) than 4x12s, due to dimensions


All just generalizations, of course. There's lots of variables to cabs. I've owned 2x12s that killed 4x12s in volume in a very noticeable way, and I've owned 4x12s that sounded much more boxy and directional than 2x12s.

I ordered an Avatar 212 and it should be here in a few days. For me it doesn't take up as much room and easier to lug around in case I need to use it away from home. It will have less possible headroom but it depends on what amp you have.

You could always get two 2x12s.

If you have the room and means of transport, nothing beats a 4x12 unless it's two 4x12's

and spend a lot more money


I got my Avatar cab unloaded for $160, second hand. Bought speakers for $100. Or just get a used Marshall 1960 cab for $350. I see that every so often.
