    any suggestions on a good cabinet...412...to be used with a hybrid ss Marshall 8100 head? It's a 4 OHM head...I would love to know if there's a good cab for this head besides the cabinet that was designed for it which is a bit rare...
    should i just get a 4 OHM cab...or get an 8 OHM cabinet?
    the head is 100 watts at 4 OHMs...i would love to take the most advantage of the amps volume and power and tone...it's a cool amp for metal tones...
    Which cabinet?
    help...

    The classic 1960 Marshall cabinet has a 4 ohms input and provides for bone crunching sound and volume.

    Any other similar cab will give similar results.

    If in doubt, try it first with a friend's or rehearsal studio 1960, going full blast if possible.

    I had one of those in high school when they first came out and used a 1960, much better than the horrible valvestate cab.

    Amu 412 cab with 4 16 ohm speakers can be wired for 4 ohms really easily.

    Marshall MF280 or MF400 would be great

    One of the 1960 cabs with T75 speakers in it, or better yet an X pattern of T75 and V30.
