    Presently in the process to add to my Amp family and am wondering what good cabinet would handle the power of the SUNN 300T / Fender Pro 300 ?? The head delivers 300 watts of Tube power at 2, 4 or 8 ohms. I am looking for a single cabinet, possibly a 410.

    Anyone with similar experience with these monsters, let me know !!!

    Try the SWR Goliath III, I played a 300T through the Gol III and it sounded awesome. I've also played one through a Bergie 610 and that sounded sweet too. Don't go with an Ampeg cab; playing one through an Ampeg was the only time I hated what I heard. You might wana try it with an Eden too, or a Schroeder, or an Aggie.

    Aggie 412, its a bit bulkier than a 410, but will be the hugest thing in the world! Especially with a nice loud head like that 300.

    Sunns were built for 2x15's. That's why I am planning on getting two 2x15's for my Sunn 1200S that's on the way.
     
  8. cant go wrong with an 8 x 10 or a 4 x 10 and a 1x15. im partial to an 8 x 10 though. i like lots of mids

    Holy **** how are you going to get it around? I have one EV 215 and it sounds pretty good but its a bitch to get around.

    Gonna need a trailer for sure. I'm also considering for big shows to bring my 1x15 for a drum monitor so I get the full 1200 watts (2 8Ohm 2x15's and 1 4Ohm 1x15)...I'm probably a bit insane but not keeping up with these 2 damn 5150's is getting old so I figured I'd just over power them and get it over with :)

    I wouldn't do that with the 115. If the 215s are 8 Ohm and the 115 is 4, the 115 will get as much as the 2 215s put together. Not a good thing :D

    Yea that's true it does handle 500 watts though and would make people jaws drop at the sheer number of hooge speakers that are getting blasted at them :)

    It would get more power so I would have fun trying to balance the volumes between the 2 other cabs...

    I'd say a nice 2x15 (A la Mesa Diesel or Bergantino) or a Bergantino NV425/610, An Aguilar 412 or even perhaps a Schroeder cabinet.

    Would an 8X8 capable of handling the SUNN 300T ???

    Yea but I think you would want another cab to handle the low end like a 1x15 or a 12.

    I just got this amp last week and have been using it with a vintage Ampeg 8x10 and it sounds like a dream. Seriously.... I want to orgasm when I start playing. The only other cab I've tried it through is one of my Ampeg 4x10's and it sounded ok, but the 8x10 just seems to handle everything and sound incredible.

    Yeah, and then add a Big Bertha 1x18" and you'll be all set!

    I vote for 2x15.

    I play my 300T through a SWR Triad(1x15 + 1x10) and Son of Bertha(1x15). Definitely not lacking in the low end.

    The amp will be here by next week. I will give it a try with my 8X8 cabinet and see. But, I suspect the need for a 610 or a combo 1X15 and 210.

    Now that AVATAR products are available in Canada, this might be the way to go.
