    So I have been picking up a few more amps trying to find my sound Roccaforte HG100, almost but not perfect for me so I bought a Bogner 101B(from everyones advice here at TGP) and I thought it was just so-so(I know,I know, just bear with me)And finally I just bought a Diezel VH4S and I found out something,,, All along its MY CABINETS!!@#!!&#@#@:FM I had been playing everything thru a Mesa 4x12 recto cab, and recently I had bought a Orange 2x12 cab(a little lighter you know) but nothing sounded quite right, I thought I had quality cabs, but the I get home with the VH4S which I bought used with the original lower Diezel stereo cab and holy crap I am finding out everything I own sounds amazing thru this cab!!!! SO,,,do i buy more cabs?? Lets start with my Orange cab, can I simply swap out speakers or should I just buy another cab?? If so what do I buy, this Diezel cab sounds very crisp and clear with just the right amount of low end, do I buy more of these or should I buy a Bogner cab as well?? HELP, I AM A CABINET IDIOT!!!!! Thanks in advance and sorry I was so long winded.

    Where you at? I've got a Bogner slant 4X12 with Vintage 30s in the L.A. area.

    Sounds like it may be a speaker issue....what type of speakers are in those cabs?

    By the way I forgot to add a Marshall 1960a vintage cab, This is what has me puzzled(thats not hard to do) is they all have vintage 30 speakers and all sound SOOO different.

    Try a Z-Best cab. It's a tuned, ported 2x12. Fantastic cab. Available through any Dr. Z dealer.
