Hello all, I purchased a 80s x100b 6l6 head and was wondering what recommendations are out there for a good cab?? Im looking at a Carvin 412 cab, probably cant go wrong with that, but...

It depends on how much character you want the speakers to add. The clean channel seems to perform best with the cleaner high-wattage speakers. EVM12L, the old Carvin BR12s, maybe Eminence Delta-Lite. With the speakers that the Marshall folks prefer, I get peaks in the high-mids/low-highs that annoy me. I tested your amp with a 1x12 Thiele-ported cab with an EVM12L, and I liked the result very much. Closed back is a good idea too, and it's really not a bad idea to stick some insulation inside in the back for damping. At 100W, and a fairly hi-fi power amp, your amp can do a solid low end, and the higher wattage speakers have the cones for it.

If I were you, I'd snatch these up right quick:

Stick 'em in a 2x12 closed cab with some insulation in the cab.

Have you ever moved a 4x12 around? Or played seated in front of one?

I thank you for the response. Yes, the cab Im looking at now is the Carvin V412T, grey fuzzy one with the Carvin British series speakers. I plan on leaving it at our church where I play so I wont be lugging it around. I've read the older BR12s are very good.

They're transparent with solid bass. A bit warmer than average.
