Try a Mojave 2x12... very big sounding, and not woofy due to the small vent in the back. Very portable, easily fits in a backseat of just about any vehicle. These are very rugged and great sounding cabs made with 11 ply birch.

I sold all my Marshall cabs once I bought one. Marshall cabs to me are very dull sounding. Great for heavy metal but that's about it. I think they are made out of particle board (sawdust and glue).

Very similar to the THD cabinet in design. Also a great cab. THD uses 9 ply birch.

And if you want cheap LOPO looks like a great deal! http://www.lopoline.com/2x12ocabs.html

I have a Mojave 2 x 12 as well but with a 100 watter...make sure you get the right speakers for it as far as power handling goes. I have an alnico blue and G12H in it so the cab is only rated for 30w. Maybe some of the higher wattage eminence speakers would be good choices. I'm probably going to trade up to a custom built 4 x 12 at some point as most of the amps I'm into building are in the 50-100w range.

Dude the 1960 smokes, I think. I think the best bang for the buck though is the Gflex. It's 2x12 and its got IT over most 4x12's (biased of course). I don't play metal either, as a general rule. I've been known to crank it out but the point being the Gflex isn't just for that music. It's MONDO bass frequency. But clear. I don't know, I just love it. Good luck!!!

I'd Look for a JCM 800 or older Marshall 4X12 1960A SLANT unloaded.
Stay away from the stereo mono jack switch harness

Best way to get a good price unloaded. If you want loaded shoot for local pickup.

Put some Scumbacks on top and 12H30's on the bottom and if the back is Particle Board make a new one when you can.

Enjoy The Music

I add this to all of these posts I think, but if you're on a budget, the 1965A or B cabs can be found for about $300 and they sound phenomenal....very easy on the back as well.
