ok so i have a b52at100 head. now i need speakers

is a peavey5150 cab for 200$usd a good deal?

It's alright, but Peavey cabs suck imo. Get a nice 2x12 Avatar with Vintage 30s or something.

I don't know for sure but I'm pretty sure the 5150 cab is the same as the 6505 cab and if so its a pretty good deal for $200. My band uses live and it sounds pretty good, though it is matched up with the 6505+ head. I don't know what sound you are after or if you are just tryin to be on a budget but maybe check out the matching cab for the b-52 head? I'd say go with it for $200, youu can't get much cheaper than that for a 4X12 cab. Good luck.

yeah i'm pretty much on a budget. i mean i could maybe spend 300 but thats a stretch. i'm not specially picking out the 5150 cab it's just in my budget and seems good.

Then go with a 2x12 Avatar with Vintage 30s like I said.

ok, it's like 130 more but do you think thats worth it?

Yes the Avatar cab will be 20x better sounding than the Peavey cab. It will cost you about $330, which is a little over your budget, but well worth it imo.

As for that Laney you posted, I have no idea if it's good or not since it doesn't say a model name for it. I'm guessing it's their bottom of the barrel cab and probably isn't that great.

ok thanks, i'll have to wait a few weeks but i guess thats worth it.

plusss the 2x12 is much more portable. )) right?
#13
Yup.

I have a 4x12 and am selling it to get a 2x12. 4x12s look cool, but that's about all they're good for

I see 1960's and JCM9 cabs go for less than Avatar cabs all day.

Yes both the Avatar cab and Marshall cab are going to sound better than the 5150 cab.

do they sound better?

Maybe the 1960s with the V30s in them, but it's going to be hard to find one for under $300.

The 1960s with G12T-75s (like mine) probably won't sound as good with your amp as the Avatar will. A LOT of amps don't seem to sound good with the G12s.
