Best unloaded 2x12 cabinet for vintage Fanes


Silver Supporting Member
After a long search, I finally scored a pair of vintage fanes for my Hiwatt. My Hiwatt is a 1x12 combo with a celestion so I'm considering buying an unloaded 2x12 cab for the Fanes.

Any recommendations? Have people been happy with their Avatar cabinets? How about Port City? The Stone Age stuff looks great but over 2x the price of Avatar. I want to do the speakers and the amp justice but don't want to overpay since I already have the speakers. I also don't want to assume that all cabinets are the same and just buy the cheapest.

Thanks for any recommendations,


I've had great luck with Avatar for Fender-style cabs. For Marshall-style stuff, I recommend Sour Mash cabs.

Best bang (thump?) for your buck, IMO.
