    Try the Schroeders!!! They are seemingly the best on the new horizion. They have a corrected high end to the SWR and the Eden.

    One or two Schroeder 1210 would work great (depending on how much volume you want -- two would get 'plaster-cracking' loud) -- very smooth musical, treble, powerful, solid low end, very punchy mid-bass, & great cut-through mids.

    You should choose cabs based upon your band, tone/playing style, and venue type - NOT based totally on what head you are using.

    if you're playing mostly/all rock style music try Eden 210XST's! they are great and efficient! they sound different from SWR's though! they have attenuators on the horn so you can dial it as low as you like!

    Get a Mesa 4x10 and 1x15 setup... You'd just about OWN on that setup! Or a single 6x10 or 2x15 would be enough for anything. Aggy and Mesa gear seem to get along pretty well, so a pair of 2x12 Aguilars or a 4x10 and 2x12 would do you nicely!

    The Big Block generally sounds best with larger cabs. For some reason it sounds a little stiffled with smaller cabs. So get yourself a pair of 8x10s and you're all set.
