    Marshall 1965A. Closed-back, slant-front 8-ohm cab that can handle about 120-140W. Cool look (looks like a scaled-down 4x12), very portable, and sounds great even with the stock speakers. Downside is, of course, they haven't made them since 1991 so you can only get them used :(

    Tuning notes:

    The Marshall 1965 closed-back cab has a tight low-end, a crunchy/crispy top end, and a bit of a scoop in the mids. Surprising punch and attack. Great for Marshall crunch rock, a secret weapon for you rockers.

    The Mesa 4x10 (in their Rectifier series - go figure) is open-back, less punch, but also way more detail and air in the mids thanks to the Jensen alnico RI speakers. Sounds ungodly great, and old-school, with cranked Fenders. Also great, believe it or not, with ... you guessed it ... Mesas!

    Just depends on what tools you need for your sound. 4x10s are a terrific option for getting heard in a band sitch without the weight and bulk of 4x12s.

    What Wes said. VERY cool little cabs actually. If I had room for one, I'd get it in a heartbeat.
    I also really liked my old Matchless 410 semi-open back cab from the mid 90s. Can't remember what speakers were in those but it was a rippin tone too.

    I own and LOVE an Adam Stark 4X10 Sex Cab with those speakers. Best of breed for my needs/desires. Lively but not fatiguing. Just great. Mine is white with gold piping. Stunning. Mates well with my Sex Amp, natch, and with my Komet and PB45.

    I tried a Groove Tubes 4X10 loaded with Kendrick frames with a Fender Pro Junior -- and it was killer. :dude It was on consignment for $200 but at the time I didn't have the money. :jo
