    Marshall recently stopped making them, and most of them that I know of (Mesa, Aguilar, etc) are fridge-shaped.
     
  7. Marshall will probably have a new one out at some point in the near future.

    Ampeg makes one im sure, Peavey do or used to (in recent history)
     
  8. mm saw some in a shop a while ago pretty temptanised

    Neither Ampeg nor Peavey makes one right now, I'm afraid.

    Isn't the fridge shaped 4x12's a better speaker placement setup than the square kind? Vertical arrays and all that stuff.

    i know a guy who uses some old genz benz 4x12 for bass. another who uses a marshall guitar cab loaded with webers.

    i think that if you use speakers that are rated not but so high you don't have to worry so much about dimensions and volume (of the cab) as the speakers take up less room on the inside of the cab.

    i could be way off.

    i dropped some tech soundsystem speakers in an old sunn cab, and some black widows in a sunn 215B (p.a. cab) and neither cabinet was any worse sounding for having "the wrong" speakers in it. (the original speakers were blown in both, btw.)

    i figure if you find the tallest and deepest square 4x12, and drop some 100w bass speakers in it you should be in good shape.

    again, i could be totally wrong.
     
  12. Carvin makes top and bottom 4x12 cabinets for a least their Legacy series.

    I'm pretty sure those are 10s, but they don't have anything on those cabs on their site at all.
     
  15. Lemmy plays with 4x15" cabs :bassist: :D. They're ridiculous! I don't really know how a 4x12 sounds, so I'm out!

    Those are 8x12s.
     
  17. Either Lemmy is an even four foot, eleven inches, or those are 4x12s.
