    i currently have an SWR WorkingPro 400 and a 2 10 Avatar Kappa Pro, 8 ohm.

    I want to round out my stack a bit with another cab. any suggestions?

    i play all types of music, including classic, grunge and alternative rock, jazz, fusion etc.

    lightweight is a must, along with smaller overall size (this rig will end up in a college dorm most likely) but should be able to play a decent sized indoor venue or small outdoor venue (beach gigs, etc.)

    oh yeah, also, no more than like, lets say, 3-400 bucks?

    so... 1 2 3 GO FOR IT!

    Why not add another 8 ohm Avatar 2-10 if the one you have sounds good? I don't consider them particularly lightweight but you'll have to decide on what's too heavy for you.

    Edit-just realized you want smaller. Well, you're in for it now. You'll get dozens of recommendations based on personal favourites, and some based on nothing at all. You'll have to get out and look I'm afraid. Good quality, lightweight and small gear is expensive unfortunately.

    I have a Wakabout Scout Combo. Great amp but way out of your price range.

    Add another one of the same, or a 2-12 cab. All depends on how loud you want to get. Adding a 4-10 will get you to loud.

    2 12 is a little big. would 1 12 do nice? or would 1 15 be the better choice?

    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    2x12 neo.

    Thing is, when given the option I will always choose the most thundering rig possible. I actually want to add a 2x12 (in the place of 2x10) to complement my 4x10.

    If you dont need tons of volume, the 1x12 would probably give you a nice range of tone. 2x10/1x15 is a great setup too.
