just an annoyance.. why are 2x12 cabs so expensive?
I think if you read your post you will realize that you answered your own question. It's the law of supply and demand, 4x12's aren't as practical as a 2x12 so they don't command a high price on the used market.
Because Marshall has flooded the used market with AVT 4x12s they sold to slow kids, and there aren't any cheapo 2x12s because everybody buying them is looking for a more appropriate cab after getting rid of their AVT 4x12.

What do you use for the Board settings then? Do you flatten all of the eq settings? Roll off all gain etc? I am probably going to try the same route this Saturday night, but will not have much time to mess with the Board and don't want to be "fiddleing" too much with my sound out of respect for the other players who expect all of that stuff to already be handled.
I think someone hit it. Companies don't make bottom quality 2x12's because the entry level cabinet consumer isn't clamoring for one.
The monitor post I believe is about the difficulty of hearing yourself with a 2x12 on the floor vs the slant half of a 4x12. Depending on your monitoring setup it can be a legit concern. You can also buy a stand for your 2x12 if you don't plan to keep the head on top of the cab.
