I am curious what makes some people choose a cabinet from another company other than the company who made their amp. Typically if you like an Eden, SWR, Mesa, or Ampeg, you choose the amp because you like the character it has. Normally the store sell the cabinet which is connected to the amp from the same company. Do you find the cabinet of the same company not provide you with the sound you want? Persoanlly if I want a Ampeg sound I want the ampeg cabinet with the Ampeg amp because it gives you the full Ampeg sound. Not to mention when they design an amo, they test it with the cabients that they make.mNow perhaps you find the Ampeg cabinet lacking a tone your looking for. Perhaps the cabinet was too expensive? granted some may have the cabinet they want and they purchased more than one head so they may stick with the same cabinet with all their bass heads.
