Any sonic differences between the Avatar G112 and G112 vintage?

    Sold an old 2x12 that I had as I didnt think I needed it. Now I'm kind of missing the ability to plug in my Budda without dragging in my 4x12 from the garage. Thinking about the Avatar G112 vintage. I have a Vin30 and GH30 sitting at home that I could slap in there. This cab would also be a 2nd cab for my Lil Dawg D-lux amp.

    The vintage is a bit different from the traditional G112 sold by avatar. A bit bigger. Has anyone compared the traditional 1x12 cab vs the vintage 1x12 cab?

    About a month ago, I was in your shoes. I went with the Vintage G112s.

    No regrets whatsoever. They do not sound boxy at ALL--they sound excellent.

    I had a traditional 2x12 Avatar a few years back and thought it was great. Sold it for a Bogner oversized 2x12....then 2 months later the Avatar vintage 2x12 comes out. DOH!

    I have a 2x12 Avatar (whatever the top of the line cab is called) with Vintage 30's, and truthfully it sounds as good as my Mesa Recto Cab, and I like the fact that Avatar used the Marshall type handles, which Mesa didn't.
