    I am seriously considering purchasing the Mesa Boogie M9 Carbine amp, and I was wanting some suggestions on associated cab or cabs to purchase as well. I am thinking a Mesa Boogie Powerhouse 4x10 and maybe 2x15, or just a single 4x12. What do you guys recommend?

    I had the M9 and it was incredible with my Berg CN212. But as I had the light cab I had to go light head with a GK MB800. But I am lusting for a stack of two Mesa 212. I just love the 12s. But if you like 10's the new sealed 610 is amazing with the M9. As for the 412, I bet it is great but I never seen it or heard it anywhere. Can't go wrong with Mesa and I have seen some great bargains on used M9

    But let's face it ... everything sounds incredible with the CN212. The MB800 just kills with that cab. It's my favorite gig rig. If the OP isn't looking for the classic SVT sound, that rig might be ideal. EXCEPT for the price.

    I have been using the M9 with powerhouse 4X10 & 2X12 cabs for 5 years. They are a great match.

    Not on your list, but I am using a Powerhouse 212 and will be happily staying with that (after using a Hartke AK410, Ashdown 210 and 115 each at various times over the past couple of years). I do want to get a PH 210 cab though. And another 212...........
