    I've been using the same Peavey Mark VII with a Peavey 18" cab forever. I'm thinking that I'd like to add another cab so I can use the crossover and maybe not have to carry the 18 with me for rehearsals and smaller gigs. I'm thinking that a 1*10" should do it, a 2*10" max.

    Cheap is better as I'm not really playing out much or making money. I'm also playing mid 80 Peavey T-40s so I'm not needing the highest end performance...

    Any suggestions?

    I don't think you're going to do well with most 1x10s unless you get a super high-end one or have a very quiet drummer. I suggest you look into either 2x10 cabs or some of the newer, efficient 1x12s. You'll move a lot more air for close to the same weight and have a much better chance of being loud enough to play with a full band.

    Have a look at Avatar's products. Very, very good quality for the money and you can get a 1x12, 1x12+6 or 2x10, which might suit your needs.

    Define "cheap."

    I say a 210 would be sweet with the 18 and not bad by itself and if you want inexpensive, why not keep it all peavey and grab a headliner series or get a better series used.

    I dig the old peavey T-40s.

    If I were in the market for a lightweight 210, I'd look for used GK combos or 210 cabs. They'll keep up with a drummer and are ridiculously light/loud for the $. I have a GK 210 that served me proudly for many years and never quit. I'm reluctant to give it away bc it saw me through many practices and gigs.

    This might be the way to go.. kind of what I was thinking.
