2x12 Cab

Recomendations for a 2x12 cab with Vin 30's or a like speaker? My mesa 3/4 back with the 90watt speakers seems a bit bright for my mesa f30. I'm thinking maybe a recto cab.

Re: 2x12 Cab

Port city music Wave cabs are really awesome, especially if you're looking for a warmer, more balanced sound. I think it would compliment the F-30 quite nicely. I compared it side by side with a mesa 4x12 cab plugged into a single rectifier head. The PC cab sounded warmer, and "cleaner", while the mesa had more of a top end fizzle. Not thin sounding, but just voiced more aggressively. Just depends on what you like.

They're a big pricey though, definitely worth it though! You can read about them at www.portcityamps.com

But yeah, mesa cabs are also really good cabs, built solidly, and sound excellent.

Mesa halfbacks do the job.
