I think this is my first post on this forum. Anyway, I first ran my Avenger through a Marshall 1960 AX re-issue 25 watt, it sounded ok, but definitely would get muddy. Next, I used the real deal of the same cabinet from 1972. This sounded great, but I still thought the Avenger could sound even better. Enter the VHT 2x12 Fatbottom - Unbelievable. The Avenger through this bottom is the heaviest sound I've heard. I did not try the VHT 4x12 Fatbottom, but this 2x12 smoked the standard VHT 4x12 hands down. I don't know about the other Soldano's, but the Avenger never sounded better - killer!! grin


Good to know! I've always wanted to try a VHT fatbottom cab. Did it have the P50E eminences in it? I hear they are basically eminence legends, which are what soldano puts in their cabs, though some say they are quite different and not the same speaker at all.

I have the P50E eminences, which I think is what VHT currently uses in the Fatbottom. I really don't know what the hell they do to make the "Fatbottom" so crushing, but it really is. I was thinking my Avenger could not get "heavy" enough, before I went to another highgain head, I tried this 2x12 I can't believe how awsome the Avenger sounds. I can honestly say now my Avenger lives up to all the hype behind it!! I don't know too much about Soldano cabs, but it would be great if they had a cab like this.

I have used old Marshall cabs with GB's "all years", and still think these cabs are just "it".
Big, greasy, crunchy, woody and crispy tones, suits the SLO just great.
I've tried out or used some other cabs as well, like Bogner 412's, newer Marshalls (V-30's, 75's), Soldano 412's (V-30, G12H-30 or old GB's), Matchless, etc....
Still, I favour the old Marshalls for better "tone".

Btw, Soldano also makes great cabs. I still have a slant 412 with GB's (sold off another), which is good.
But the old Marshalls are always used as the "No-1" cabs.

I also have an Avatar 412 that I`m considering putting 4 legend v12`s in it. I also have a Hot Rod 50+. HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR SPEAKER/CAB MATCHUPS ? Thought I would open this old thread and kick it around some!

Okay, then, I'll participate. I've been using an old ADA split stack slant 2x12 with 2 Eminence V12 Legends for years now with my SLO. Very happy with it's ease of transport and the incredible sound.

Has anyone tried the Soldano diagonal 212 ? It's in the Hot Rod 25 video and shown on BCM site. Very interesting as it lists the same physical size as Soldano 412's?

Not a fan of the 2x12....but the Soldano 4x12 is perfect for the SLO and a well made cab!

I'm using a stock Soldano 2x12 and it sounds great to my ears. Smooth but it also cuts through. Very high quality cab!

I've got a 1x12 on the way from them soon also.

Okay thanks. There is another 2x12 listed(diagonal) on BCM site under Soldano cabs as HR 25.Also on the HR25video. Mike points it out. According to the site specs cab still measures same as Soldano 4x12. Very interesting if you're on a budget and you have your speakers. Wondering how it would compare sound wise? Criteria being 1.sound quality.2.build. 3. Taller cab(not a must,just a plus! Not currently shopping just intrigued about this taller(off the ground) 2x12.

It's just the stock horizontal 2x12. I'm not a metal player. It suits the style of music I play very well for my tastes (70s rock, more or less).

2x12's are great, especially as I'm getting older. I still have my Marshall 1960A 4x12 with a couple of Eminence legends in it, but it's been years since it has left my house. I'm loving the sound I'm getting from the ADA cab. USA built from some nice ply from back in the day, and I'm very happy with it. Plus , I love how it is a vertical 2x12.
