My parents are gonna buy me a new cab for me, but I want to make sure I get the right thing.

The cab I asked them to order was a Avatar Traditional 212 with V30s. As I have done more reading, V30s don't seem to be the right speakers. Right now I'm leaning towards G12K100s.

Further complementing the issue is I want to buy an amp more suited to practicing by myself or playing in rehersal/jamming setting, and is a bit more versatile than the 5150. As of right now I'm leaning towards a Orange Tiny Terror, but that decision is several months away.

Will the G12K100 loaded Avatar work the best, or do I need to look elsewhere?

Definitely extreme metal (Death, thrash, etc) with the 5150, with the smaller amp I guess classic rock and blues, depending on the amp maybe some old school metal.

For the metal, I HIGHLY recommend looking into Vader Cabinets. Extremely well made and amazing sound, for a pretty reasonable price.
