    Hi All - I am looking for more portability in my (new to me) guitar rig. I have a recent aquired '68 Fender Bassman head and I want to use two 12" JBL D123s that have been re-coned to 8 ohms each. What I am looking for are empty single 12" speaker cabinets (2). Where is the best place to get them? I am open to used cabinets or new ones. These cabs are going to get knocked around a bit so they don't have to be showroom quality. I am a cheap son-of-a-gun so that is the number 1 thing I look at (price).
    Thanks in advance!
    Best regards,
    GM

    Avatarspeakers.com or lopoline cabinets are the cheapest and best made for the money

    Also take a look at Coyote Cabs Alpha Pup. I've got one for my BP30 head and am very happy with it. Unlike most cabs, this is a slant front, so no need to raise the speakers up at all. Comparable prices to the avatar and lopoline cabs.

    check out lopoline.. nice folks, and not so far from you, really. i just got a 112 convertible from them-- nicely built, not expensive, very easy to deal with.

    Avatar has just discontinued their G112 cube. They only make the G112W now.

    +1 for Lopoline. I have their large 1x12 closed-back.
