Neodymium cabs?

Hey there.
As always, I was checking out some gear the other day and got into a chat concerning my planned rig. I'm looking for a poweramp and a cabinet to bring my Pod XT Live! some serious firepower. I was recommended an Alto Mac 2.2 for the poweramp, but we ran out of luck on the cab. Given a brief history about cabinet and speaker hardware, I came to the conclusion that I'd really like a neodymium cabinet - given the rather pleasant things I've heard neodymium produce. Thus...

Does anyone on the boards know of any neodymium guitar or full-spectrum cabinet? I'm looking for a 4x12-format.

The higher end (blue grille cloth vs. chrome grille) Vox Valvetronix cabs have "NeoDog" speakers with neodymium magnets. Or, you can get a cab from Avatar loaded with Celestion speakers with neodymium magnets.

What I'm looking for is a versatile cab - that excels at brutal high-gain grind and palm-muting. Do you know whether those cabs are suited for that? Thanks for the tips so far, however!

i would just get a 1x12 cab with a vintage 30 or look into a ported 2x12 . you can't go wrong with anything avatar speakers has to offer.

Look, I'm out specifically for neodymium cabinets. I'm avoiding everything aside from those - specifically for the reasons brought up before in the conversation I had with the gearhead in the musicstore, and my own experiences and comparisons with how neodymium compares to your usual hardware. Again - this is to give me enough firepower and wattage for a gig. Mainly, I'm looking for a 4x12, since I'd rather have too much power than too little.
