    Let's celebrate the sonic perfection of the dual 4x12 setup. Post in this thread if you run an amplifier through two 4x12 cabinets. Share stories, provide advice, post pictures. My rig of choice consists of a vintage '02 Mesa Dual Rectifier 3 channel Solo head driving a voluptuous pair of Mesa Rectifier 4x12 oversize V30 cabs. I can tell you with absolute certainty that special chemicals of pleasure are released inside my brain each and every time I play through this setup. Many amps have come and gone, but the dual 4x12 configuration is here to stay.

    Whichever suits your fancy, good sir. Side by side is how I ride.

    Nothing like it!
    I used to have them about 8' apart, when running modulation effect that way it's soooo spacious. With them next to each other it's like a sonic punch to the gut.

    I used to gig with two full stacks side by side...... Those were the days....

    These days I would be very happy if I could gig with two 4x12's side by side....

    LOL! I almost forgot I once had a rig like this! My old '79 JMP, 412 Blackbacks, and a '74 B cab I restored, loaded with a quad of 1970 G12M 003's.

    A beast.
