Greetings UG,

I'm currently using a 2x12 cab i built with a eminence swampthang and wizard. It doesn't pair the way i'd like for my EVH 5150.

I'm planning on either selling that cab or using it for practice only and need a more reliable tour cab.

In the end i'm planning on doing a V30/Creamback speaker combination.

I was wondering if any UGers have A/B'd a Orange 2x12 with a Avatar 2x12 and saw any difference.


P.S.
I recently was offered a NEAR MINT Orange 2x12 PPC212C for $400.

I would go with Avatar.

Absolutely nothing special about an Orange box.


Order their Hellatone 60 (if they still have them) rather than the Celestion Vintage30 (the Hellatone 60 is a broken-in re-stickered Vintage 30). Be aware that the V30 is 3 dB more efficient than the Creamback (100 vs 97). The V30 will dominate that combination.

The avatar site has been down so i cant check. But wouldnt the Orange price i got be cheaper?

One, you're talking a used Orange cabinet.

Two, there are minty Avatar cabinets available for that price and less. Currently a pristine Vintage 2x12 loaded with Hellatone 30's (these are NOT Vintage 30's, as the owner states) for $375 on Reverb, for example.

Do you have an older 5150 or the 5150 III??

If you have an old one I'd get the Avatar. Because I think they tend to have a tighter sound regardless of the speakers for a 5150. I like orange cabs, but I never jelled with the 5150/6505 sound through them. Had an Orange cab I actually traded for an Avatar 4x12 and would never look back given that choice again.

I only say that I wouldn't go with the orange because I haven't heard the new ones with an Orange. Maybe it's sweet. hahaha
I just know I strongly preferred the avatar to both my orange 4x12 and my orange 2x12 with the 6505.

I like Orange cabs, they are great sounding and nicely built, I had a PPC212OB and it was so sweet. IDK about the compact ones though.

i have two orange 2x12"s and an avatar 4x12". i think the orange cabs are built better. . i know they are framed, so they look beefier, but i really like the orange better.

i really like the V30 and K85/100 combination. i haven't owned a creamback though.

UPDATE: I bought the Orange 2x12. I couldn't be happier with the difference in my tone.
