Re: New Cabinet time!

I think V30s would sound fine in the Splawn cabs. It just happens to be that V30s don't sound that great with the Splawn heads, because there's this huge mid-honk thing when you combine the two. But I'm sure it would sound fine with a Dual Rec.

Re: New Cabinet time!

thanks for the input. just looked at the specs of a mesa traditional vs the splawn and the dimension are very similar with the splawn being like 3/4" shorter is all. i bet with V30s it would sound very similar to the mesa traditional and thus very good with my dual rec.

Yeah, at that point, it all comes down to wood selection I guess. I doubt you could go wrong with either.

Re: New Cabinet time!

since you're aiming as high as the Mesa/Orange cabs, check out VHT or Vader cabs.

As for Standard vs Oversized Mesa cabinets, the difference's are mainly structural; wider spacing between each individual speaker and more "hollow space". As for speakers, they're both stock with V30s

+1. My Trad. sized Rectifier cab is really tight sounding with my JSX.
