    Im looking for a 2x12 cab and I really like the avatar cabs. Is there any other company I should be looking at? I like avatar because you can pick from different combos of speakers. Let me know

    Avatar gives you the best selection 'Loaded' If you like them, sounds like a winner. I have one, and it is very good.

    Many provide high quality unloaded cabs.

    www.reasonamps.com
    www.kenscabs.com
    www.bobburtcabinets.com
    www.jenkinssoundshop.com


    I'm also fond of the work by Dr Z on his cabs, Nick Greer's cabs look incredible, I'm going to order one soon, as do many others.
    but again for greatest selection 'loaded' then Avatar is the way to go.

    THD cabs sound great. You should try one to decide if you like the speaker combination. I love the sound... super smooth and clear.

    Earcandy Cabs have a pretty solid reputation and offer some great options for building a custom cab. Check them out.

    Another vote for THD. I just picked up a 2x12 with their Longhorn drivers and I can't believe the low end produced by this relatively small cab.

    Excellent!

    Tone Tubby makes a fantastic 2x12, especially if you get it loaded with their hempcone speakers.
