    I didn't read the whole thread, but I can say the best and most affordable "Marshall" cab I've played/heard is Randall. Very solid, with the right Celestions, produces the same sound as Marshall.

    DO IT!!!!

    I'd be tempted to get that Carvin 4x12 for 150$ . . . even if it never leaves my basement. :P

    You could probably get it for 100 bucks or less if you really wanted to. I would be all over that!

    Even I would have bought that! In spite of the Carvin Shame.

    It'll handle the 200 watt SS Randall head that drives it. And get rather loud.

    interestingly enough, I have 2 EV 150 watt speakers I was thinking of throwing in a closed back 2x12 cab for a high powered cab for needing loud without pushing a 4x12 around.

    I'm guessing you like that set up.

    Not sure but they all matched and nothing looked like a recone so I am guessing they were stock.

    Same, I think I have 6 4x12s stored right now. only use 1 and thats for certain outdoor gigs rarely

    CLubs sound reinforcement is too effective these days and for recording a 2x12 will perform the same if chambered the right way
