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.

I'm hoping to find a used Port City OS Vertical 2x12 and throw some EVM12Ls in there.

I've owned or played just about all available cabs out there and almost every customer coming by way that plays his or hers "Nirvana" cabinet, always comes back to the stock Eminence V12 Legends. Me included.

I do run a custom 2x12" ISO cabinet with WGS AlNiCo and Ceramic combo which works great with everything, but the straight up Soldano cab is still the best.
