Hi guys, new here

I've just bought myself an Orange Thunderverb 200 (Switchable from 200 to 100W)

I was going to buy myself an Orange 4X12 HP8 cab (100W per speaker), but now I've stumbled across a guy who's willing to sell two of his laney AOR cabs (1980's) for a very very low price.
The 2 cabs are AOR celestion g12m-70W

I was wondering if these could measure up to the HP8 cabs from Orange?

Thanks!!!

Depends what you want to play.

I really don't like K100's much (speakers in the HP8 cab) so I'd go for the laney AOR cab for the speakers, but that's just me.

What music do you want to play TS?

the G12M-70's wont have as tight of a low end, they will be more lively and have more aggressive midrange. basically they'll sound more old school than a K-100 cab. K-100's are great for more contemporary/modern tones.

i don't like m70's. i am a huge fan of KT88's though. the new orange cab will look very nice with the amp.

Celestion K100's are speakers, KT88 are big power tubes

I preferred the V30s with my Thunderverb 200. Remember that the Orange cabs (both the V30s and K100s 412 cabs) have these chunk of rubber underneath .... the V30s are more than sufficient if you're interested in the low Mids and Lows. It'll be best to audition both in the shop's loudroom.

If you really want the K100s with the Thunderverb 200, get a 212 cab instead to really drive the speakers.

You can also use the TV200 as an occasional bass amp - try a 212 cab with EVM-12Ls or Emi Delta ProAs (80 oz magnet, not the 56 oz).

Good Luck!

What would be the advantage of that?

But what difference does it make to you if 4 speakers recieve 50w each or 2 speakers recieve 100w each?

'cause in my book it makes no difference.
Unless the speakers are arranged in a line array, and 4 speakers still aren't much.

certain speakers have what can be considered as a favorable sound when pressed to the limit of their operational capacity. some call it 'speaker rounding' or 'speaker distortion'.

i really like the sound of G12M-25's and some of my old Jensons when they are pushed to their limit. i tend to always have a 1x12 cab around with a low wattage speaker in it in case i want that speaker distortion sound.

my more versatile cabs usually have high power handling speakers in them so they will respond linearly at different volume ranges.
