Im my no means a noob guitarist, but ive only ever used Solid State amps.
Now im considerign buying my first serious, high quality amp, as i shall be gigging alot soon. The Peavey 6505 REALLY fits what i want, but i have no idea how cabs and heads go together / work.
Say i buy the 6505 head, what cab should i get for it?
thanks in advance.

You can get pretty much any cab for it, just make sure the speaker impedance and ohm distribution match up. List some potential cabs and I will tell you if they are compatible.

The impedance of the cab has to match the impedance of the head (it's usually switchable between 4, 8 and 16). Also, the cab has to be able to take at least as much watts as the head can put out.

trivium use a marshall 1960a cab or summin with peavey 6506+ heads, so thats obviously a sweet combination if you want that kinda tone

That does not make sense at all. What he meant to say is that the cab speakers should be able to handle as much watts as the head is rated at. Even then, you could still use lower-rated speakers as long as you don't turn up the amp too much which will result in blowing them.

I however do not quite recommend doing this though.

Actually Trivium used the 1960BV cabinets - the one with vintage 30's. They compliment the 6505 much better than the speakers in the 1960A/B
