    Which one would you pick and why?

    What are the prices on the Emperor?

    Are they similar in sound?

    Amp is a Blackstar HT-5. Music is all kinds of rock, but mostly stoner stuff right now.

    Never heard of Emperor but you won't find a better built cab than StoneAge.

    I have never played a StoneAge but I have played Emperor stuff. I currently only own a 1x12 (not enough) and couldn't be happier with it.

    They're stuff is really nice and the prices are typically pretty good. Check out their website and shoot them an email asking for a price. At one point there was a section on the site to request a quote and you basically fill out all your desired specs.

    Hope this helps a little bit.

    Cool. Is there a particular type of speaker that does better than others in a Stone Age? I ask because I remember reading how Mills cabs are designed around the v30...

    Cool - I will do that. The vertical 2x12 they have is quite tempting.

    No. Every speaker and amp I tried sounded better through my StoneAge than the Avatar and Port City cabs - and even my Heritage 212.
