new cab for combo amp

  1. Hey, i got me a Randall RB 100 150watt combo amp with a single 15"er. BTW, I love the tone! The things get plenty of volume to it, and has worked out great in past gigs, but I wanna push some more air. Any suggestions on a cab that will go good with it? Also, I'm broke, so nothing too expensive.

    I always liked the sound of a 2x10 with a 15, and it would add some volume and midrange to you amp. You could probably buy any 2x10, but if you want cheap, nothing beats a Peavey for cheap price and toughness. A Peavey cab would last a long time, and still produce those low notes!

    As jtpb said, 2x10 & a 15. Good mix. It is what I use. The 2x10 really helps out when you are trying to hear yourself on stage. But if you are more concerned about moving air, think about another 15.

    Again, agreeing with jtbp, go with Peavey. You can always find them used, for cheap. Another thought is Carvin.
  4. Hi there! I have a question for you: I have a Randall RB 100 too. Are you shure that it´s a 150 watt amp and not a 100 Watts? I want to connect second 15¨speaker, but I cant´t find any information about how many ohms is the internal speaker (Eminence) and how many ohms the amp needs minimum. Maybe you can help me with that? And in the end: did you connect a second cabinet, and if yes, what did you use and how did it turn out? Thanks a lot, Serge
  5. +1 on the peavey recommendations. If you're looking into buying a new cab people have a lot of good things to say about Avatar cabinets, and I know the prices look awesome for new cabinets. I know that the selection is limited from location to location, but if you can find a Sonic brand cabinet, you'll be getting an awesome cab and the resale value is just horrible, so you'd be able to get a smoking deal on a good cabinet.
