  • avatar 2x12 cab speakers/config

    I'm going to order an avatar G212H cab to go with my rivera knucklehead (100 watts). I was going to go with celestions, one vintage 30 and one G12H30, wired at 8 ohms mono. I would figure that it would run at 90 watts, but they said that they could only wire it for 60 (sounds kinda strange, but I believe them).

    So my question is, would you guys think that a 60 watt cab would be safe enough to use with a 100 watt head at gigging levels? If not, what speakers or configuration would you recommend? The V30/G12H30 combo sounded great from all that I've heard, which is why I originally wanted it, but I don't want to blow any speakers either. Thanks in advance for your help.

    im not sure what hes talking about. wired in parallel each speaker should be getting about 50w so you might be overpowering the g12h a touch but a little cone cry sounds cool anyway. ive been using that combo for a long time and i think its great.
    ive used it in my twin off and on for years and only one had a problem with blowing a g12h and that was wired in series. i currently use it with my marshall in a vibroking 2x12

      I was told that my Avatar 2x12 with a G12H and V30 was rated at 60 watts as well.
