Is there any way to get the sound of the acoustic 360 bass head without using the 810 cab it goes with? Or is it possible to even use the Acoustic 360 head with another cab besides it's 810 cab?

You can use any 4ohm cab of 400w or higher or two 8ohm cabs in parallel. (Assuming you are using the recent reissue.)

Don't bother getting a fridge sized cabinet unless you're planning to play a few festivals.

You'd need a power amp unless you had powered cabinets. The 360 head is basically a preamp that was designed to be paired with the 361 powered cabinets. Both the original and the Acoustic USA reissue models are like that.

The original 361 cabs IIRC were 200w and the new ones are 400w @ 4 ohms. They're designed so that you can hook up to four cabs to one head if you really want to blow out some windows.

Also the 361 cabs are just one 18" speaker and a horn, not an 8x10.

I wouldn't even get a fridge for festivals, if you want the fridge look you'll have a far easier time finding and stacking 2x10" or 4x10" cabs than lugging one of those beasts around.

You might also consider finding a Bass Pod XT, which has an outstanding emulation of that preamp *and* the cabinet. Play them through any flat response full range frequency response setup and you'll have the sound. The BASS Pod XTs, unfortunately, are out of production, but the good news is that you can hunt one down on evilBay pretty reasonably.

Friends don't let Friends carry fridges. Look at some of the more modern cabinets from Alex Claber (Barefaced Bass dot com), greenboy (fEARful 15/6/1, fEARless F115s) and the like. HUGE sound with half the weight and bulk and no "baked-in" sound.
