    Hey all,

    I ended up purchasing an early V4 and need a cab so I can play this beast!

    I primarily play a B-15N and would love to emulate that sound with a louder rig. I have hooked it up to an Ampeg V6 2X15 cab and liked what I heard.

    I have only played through 15's but am open to other options except no 8X10's or 6X10's.

    For now my budget is around $400, so I'll probably be bound by what I can find used.

    I'm not sure a SVT212AV is loud enough but it sure sounds beautiful with my V4B

    Oh, and no Black Widdows. I've had bad luck with 'em

    I want to try the 212, but I think I'm leaning to a 210 115 setup.

    I'd lean back toward the 212av personally.

    Oh, you were planning on using your B-15 cab + another? In that case, get another B-15 cab like yours. www.fliptops.net builds very nice recreations of all the old B-15 cabs, including the Thiele for your 71. More than $400, but worth it IMHO. Or look for an orphaned Thiele cab. They do pop up sometimes, and you could probably get one for less than $400.

    Sorry, you misunderstood/I was confused.

    I'm not going to use my portaflex cab with the V4. I was wondering weather you meant using the 212AV with a separate 115 cab. Now I realize you were just affirming SirMjac28's recommendation.

    If I find I need more volume/low-end (which may not be the case, I haven't used a 12" cab) would the SVT212AV play well with a 115? or would I just add another 212?

    Something to consider: is your amp is almost 27" wide... do you care if your V4 overhangs your new cab by several inches on each side, or not?

    It might, it might not. It's always a crapshoot to use mixed cabs.

    Don't care about width.

    Anyone know the used price for the 212AV?
