    Randall use to make the XL line that I always thought would be sweet! There G3 series are supposed to be built to the same specs as the older XL, but they don't have a 2x12 version... There new RV line says that it uses a birch plywood baffle and an MDF back... I don't think I want that... If I could find one of the older 2x12 Randalls for a decent price, I would be totally interested!

        They made an XXL 2x12 for a while.

                This. I dont think Ive ever seen a mesa 212 for 200 bucks.



                The XXX cabs are pretty rare. Ive only ever seen one for sale. Id love to have one. Peavey cabs are built well enough. I played live with 3 different ones loaded with various speakers. The sheffields are meh, but they arent as bad as every one says they are. Raceu4her has a huge rage boner against peavey cabs lol, so Id take his opinion with a grain of salt. But yeah....I was ALWAYS able to get excellent tone out of my peavey cabs. Also, I dunno what the XXX 212 cab is made of, but the 5150 cabs were all ply, with the back on the newer ones being MDF or something...the older butcher cabs were ALL ply.

                    The old vintage butcher cabs are some of my favorite cabs. Thick ass 13 ply with Celestion 85's in them which are basically K100's. They sound great and are tanks they're just ugly.



                    My first cabinet ever was an oversized vintage Peavey 4x12 that was ported. It was very tall and very heavy but it always sounded great.



                    Their newer cabs sound like dog**************** to me but those particular cabs always sound good.

                        i think most people agree with me. how many people do you actually see using the peavey cabs with their 5150/xxx/jsx??? out of the 9824398 bands ive seen using those heads, i cant remember the last time i saw someone using one with a peavey cab, nor can i remember seeing a marshall or mesa on top a peavey cab my sheffield cab was on the level of low end crate and marshall cabs except it looked a lot cooler. you dont realize what a joke they are till you have one with 5 or 6 other cabs at your jam space to compare them with. with all the options for cabs, why someone would go with a peavey is beyond me

                            I love you Dan, but honestly, when was the last time you ever played out with a band? Serious.

                            You can post all the Friedman-related threads as much as you want, but the fact that you haven't really played out with this rig of yours invalidates all this ****************-talking you have against anything that isn't a Gibson or a Marshall.



                            Again, love ya bro.

                                Er...it's a Triple XXX...2x12...cab??? I didn't know such a thing existed. Just to clarify, not a combo, but a cab?

                                Peavey cabs are built great. Most of their speakers are kinda meh. Depends on the application, you might like them for certain stuff (I actually ended up keeping my windsor 4x12 and find it great for low to mid gain stuff, different speakers in that though) - sheffields can be hit or miss, and there are a lot of different sheffields. I forget the guy's username but that guy from Maine did a blind speaker comparison and people ended up liking certain sheffields more than you would've expected.



                                The cabs themselves are well built. But if it's a 2x12 cab, I'd say 200 bucks is kinda high. You should be able to score a loaded 4x12 peavey for that much.
