What to Look for in a Cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by alexlocurto, Dec 2, 2013.

  1. That's basically it. I'm running a Crate BT220, which has served me (almost) faithfully for a long time. However, she will be retired (read: sold) soon, in favor of what will hopefully be my first real head/cab rig. Right now, I'm looking at the GK MB200 head. It sounds good to both my ears and my wallet. Cabs are an entirely different story. Since I've only ever played combo amps, I have quite literally no idea what to look for in a cab. I don't know how the different speaker configurations affect tone, what makes this 410 better than that one, nothing. I've got ohms and watts figured out for the most part, I just really don't know beyond that what would influence an informed decision between two cabs.
