Just wondering if anyone is using anything other than the DT-50 4x12 cab that goes with the head??
I am using a 2x12 cab loaded with a Celestion V30 and a G12hot-100 running at 8 ohms and is a closed back cab.
The issue I am having is I think I am getting speaker and tube breakup before I reach a loud volume ( I think the V30 starts to sound muddy when the volume and gain is pushed)
I am having problems at band rehearsals not cutting through over our drummer (who is a very hard hitter), we play
in the style of heavy/hardcore hi-gain dropped tuned metal. I have also tried putting the 2x12 cab on a milkcrate, which
works BUT it sacrifices my original eq settings (lose the low end mainly), so I wont be doing that...
I was thinking maybe a 2x12 cab loaded with Celestion G12K-100's, which would make it 200 watts and give me more head room for gain etc???
OR just buy the Line 6 Dt-50 4x12 cab (which I originally did not want to buy because of the hassle of carrying a bulky cab to and from gigs)
Does anyone think higher wattage speakers in a 2x12 would sound similar and be a good compromise to say lugging around a big 4x12 cab?
Or is it a "CATCH 22" situation where only a 4x12 would solve it?
