    I know they make a 4x12" guitar cab, but not bass. They're bass enclusres are only available in 10 and 15" configurations.

    I take that back, they do make a 4x12". Check with your local Ampeg dealer, they should be able to order you one.
     
  6. mmm Marshall makes 4x12" bass cabs, SWR also makes them... and I think Peavey has or had some models. But I never tried or heard them.

    You shoul look for the SVT412HE the only model I know from ampeg which features 4x12" (and a tweeter) its in their classic series.

    Aguilar probally makes the best 412 on the market. They are hard to find on the used market.

    I think that 412's are not very popular because of their size and volume. Lets face it, how many of use really need a 412 on stage in order to cut through the mix? Most people can mange with 2x112's, 212, 210+115, 410. I understand that people might use 2 410's or 215's etc, etc. But, we really dont need it. Who really wants to lug around a 100+lbs cab to their local bar/club only to be told that they are way too loud. Although, a 412 would definatley keep your guitar players volume in check, turn down or else :D

  11. as much as i love the sound from my marshall VBC 412 i must agree that it is abit of overkill using it in a small club. so what i do is using a 2x12 instead.
