    I've got the older style road ready cabs in a 2x10, 1x15 combination. I'm a big proponent of the road ready cabs as they are much denser and therefore sound better to my ears. The older cabs are much more midrangy than the new models. Where you planning to get new cabs or the old stuff?

    im either getting it new from GC or im getting it used from the internet.

    GC has the power house cabinets, and they are just big and heavy. but the road readys (on internet) seem to be better. i dont know.
