  • What is the consensus on Peavey guitar cabs?

    I played a XXX through its coordinating 4x12 cab years ago and thought that it sounded great. I also tried an Engl Fireball that I used to own through a XXX 4x12 cabinet, and it sounded good too, but it wasn't for very long. That is the extent of my cab experience with Peavey though...



    They seem to be built well, but I know there are people who don't like their speakers. I can tell you that I wasn't fond of the Blue Marvels that came with the Classic 50, but I didn't think the XXX Sheffields sounded bad [but this was way back in my infancy of tube guitar amps].



    I found a XXX 2x12 locally for $200, and to me that seems like a decent price. However, I have no idea if that is good or not. The cab looks like it is in great shape as well as oversized [which I like]. I know I can replace the speakers, if I don't like them with my Marshall; but I want to hear your guys' experience...



    I have Googled it and can't find much information about them... The 4x12 cabs must have been more prevalent since most the returned searches reference the 4x12 cab.



    Anyway, would you get this cab?

        Ive heard they suck. But for $200 or less, they might be your thing.

            the cabs are built really well. its the speakers that arent that great. get a cheap Peavey cab, load it with some quality speakers, and youre good to go.

                Not to say that you're wrong, but Ive heard several guys on here say they like the speakers and its the cabs that suck. That probably varies by the model of the cab tho.

                        Oh.... Well I will have to do some more research then.... I would love to hear a good quality recording of the XXX 2x12, all that I have found seem to be ****************ty recordings.

                            While I'm sure it does vary by cab, most of the hate for Peavey cabs come from the Sheffields loaded in them (which in itself is a bit funny because there are multiple varieties of those but they are a fairly scooped speaker IIRC I've only used them a little in a 2x12 combo I had an my ears aren't all that sensitive).



                            Since Cole didn't hate the Sheffields, I'm thinking he'd probably still like the cab.



                            Any chance you could try it out cole? That'd be the easiest way to tell.

                              Not to say that you're wrong, but Ive heard several guys on here say they like the speakers and its the cabs that suck. That probably varies by the model of the cab tho.




                              While I'm sure it does vary by cab, most of the hate for Peavey cabs come from the Sheffields loaded in them (which in itself is a bit funny because there are multiple varieties of those but they are a fairly scooped speaker IIRC I've only used them a little in a 2x12 combo I had an my ears aren't all that sensitive).



                              Since Cole didn't hate the Sheffields, I'm thinking he'd probably still like the cab.



                              Any chance you could try it out cole? That'd be the easiest way to tell.
