    I am needing to get a cab for my Budda Superdrive 30 head. I would like to use Avatar cabs because I have always liked them. What would be some good speakers to use with this amp in the open-backed configuration? I also see that Avatar has a new 2x10 cab. How would this amp sound with 10's? Thanks!

    I use a Mesa 3/4 back 1 x 12" cab with Mesa/Celestion Black Shadow 90 speaker with my SD 30, and with my other heads. It's one of my all time favourite speakers. Can't comment about 10's, but I bet the SD30 would sound great with a 2 x 10 cab.

    I used the Avatar open back 2x12 with the V30/G12H30 combo. It sounds great. I don't think the SD30 is bassy enough to run 10's but what do I know ;)

    When I had my SD30, I used it with a 2 x 12 loaded with Tone Tubby alnico and ceramic speakers. That was my favorite combo out of many that I tried.

    Thanks for the suggestions! Anyone else know how it would sound with the 10's?

    the guys at Budda suggested me V'30s, and my SD80 sounds pretty good with my orange 2x12

    The Mojave 2x12 is a great cabinet. Very compact, portable, and deep sounding due to the small opening in the back.

    Would the hellatone 60's sound better in an open or closed back cab?
