  • 2x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet Recommendations?

    My budget is sitting somewhere around $300. Any recommendations for some start places for some 2x12" guitar cabinets?

    I play a wide range of sounds, from heavy/saturated, to crystal clean, to spacey. A tight low end is very important.

        If you'll consider used then you'll have a lot more options. New I would say the closest you're going to get to $300 is Avatar. They start at $369 for a 2x12 though. If you're going used, you can get a Mesa Recto 212 for $350 all day long and for $300 if you do some bargain searching.

          I would def. consider used if I could find anything in my area. So how do the Avatar cabinets stand up against the name brands like Mesa?

              Get one with G12K100's if you can too. Avoid V30's and G12T75's.

                  I have a Avatar Contemporary 2x12 with V30's- sounds excellent with great lowend. The Construction was good and the wood is flawless no knots etc. The guy is easy to deal with as well.

                    Seriously, get a White Box cab.

                    Save up the extra $69 and get a cab that you won't need to upgrade later on. Do this and be thankful.
