Right I've more or less decided on what amp I'm getting soon I've decided to wait a couple of months and get a laney VC-30 cause the majority of peeps tell me its better for metal than the LC (and it sounds sweet :p lol)

But I've just double checked its price on the net and found it has several speaker sizes i'll most likely go for the 1x12 one cause I know that means one speaker and its more affordable

but what differences would the 2x12 or 2x10 make? louder given that there are two speakers? or just a different tone characteristic?

If there's 2x12 compared to 1x12, it'll have more presence. It won't really affect volume, but perceived volume. It might seem louder simply because more air is getting moved. 2x12 Combo's can be damn heavy though, so I'm a fan of 1x12 combo's with a 1x12 extension or similar.

There will be tonal differences, I believe you get better bass response from a 2x12 compared to a 1x12, but if you're mic'ed up as you will be 95% of the time, it makes little difference.

Lincoln in the midlands dude :p

come to think of it if I've still got peoples attention rathre than make another thread does the fact that the VC has only one channel (with foot switchable gain apparently) make it a little less versatile than one with two channels?

I'm no expert in terms of speaker size, but the smaller the size, the speaker moves less, thus being more responsive. but it comes at the cost of presence and bass responsiveness. most people go with the 12" speaker as it's the most balanced speaker, opposed to the 10" which isn't as bassy as most like, or the 15" which can get muddy.

IMO, the best option would be a 2X12 cab. it's light on it's own, and you can always get another 2X12 cab, and essentially have a 4X12 cab, but more versatile in your placement of it.

the only con to anything smaller than a 4X12 is that the 412 will keep your amp head up high enough to where you won't need to bend over for adjust it. IMO.
