I just bought a 5150 head and I need to get a cab. Ive heard the Marshall 1960AVs and Mesa Cabs sounds great with it. Any other suggestions?
im stupid. blahbalhblahblah

Honestly, try the 6505 cabs. Pretty killer.

Otherwise, I'd try Oranges or Mesa Stiletto Traditionals

+1 to the person below me on G-Flexs. Forgot all about those.

Vader, Orange, G-Flex, the list goes on..

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

i believe the marshall/5150 setup is very good!
also i hear good things about vader/avatar cabs

the normal peavey ones are meant to be very muddy!
Top lel.

Avatar cabs are great.

Are you only looking at 4x12's?

The Marshall 1960's are a very common on for 5150's. Mesa's work pretty damn well also. Any high budget cab will do, you can jump on the "it needs V30's" bandwagon, but they're not essential.

The standard peavey ones aren't brilliant so stay away from them.

I'll probably stick to 4x12s. Would 2x12s be loud enough you think?

I have a Marshall 1936 with V30's hooked up to mine and it's plenty loud. I've never gone above 4 on the volume.

I've heard there's not much difference. My 2x12 is fine. I don't think you're gonna want to play a 100 watt tube head loud enough that it would make a difference anyway.

itll do fine. It depends on what you have in them though, plus 4x12s have more bottom end,though i doubt the 5150 will need help with that

Any other suggestions? I think I'm going to stick to a 4x12 cause I'm just worrying that its not going to be loud enough. I'm not trying to spend too much so I'm probably going to buy something used.

you should be fine with 212's depending on what your uses are. i only have a 412 cuz i got that for my Marshall Valvestate 8100 and Randall RH150 back in the day. it's loaded with G12-75's and it sounds ****ing sick. but yea we gig 100-300 people venues and i never need to turnmy 6505 up past 4. The tubes will sound very saturated up past like 3 anyways. You will risk running into mud/speaker damage even maybe. the beast is loud. just mic the amp at 3-4 post gain to a PA and you're good to go
