I recently purchased a new Marshall AVT150H Head and wanted to know what Marshall cab would fit very well with this amp? I'm into all types of genres but mainly support the 70's-80's tone ranging from rock n roll to hairbands such as motley crue. Any suggestions?

4x12 Celestion stock will do the job nicely, although that is to much power for home. Even in the studio (where I play it) one half it shakes the room.

It would be great to get 2 GT75's custom cab for smaller gigs, and even large venues. 4x12 is suitable only for medium venues without PA system or big venues

I was looking into Marshall 1960(Stereo) Cabs and alot of reviews said they sound amazing.. They push out 300 watts and my head holds 150 watts, would that be a problem if i do not crank it all the way? Im running on a MG Series cab atm since all I had at the time was 200 bucks :\ (it sounds horrible with tone... way to muddy) any thoughts or suggestions?

Yeah, Celestion V-30's I can vouch for, got them in a 4x12 and it's great. Also the GT75 which I belive sit in lots of Marshall cabs, got it in my Marshall 4x12 and I belive it's called 1960. And where GT75 is a bit forgiving to "less brilliant" playing IMO since it's got less mids the Vintage 30 will not be the least forgiving. It delivers every note loud and clear, shame on you if you can't deliver wink.gif

I like the Vintage 30's a bit better.

Well 300W cab is a waste of pumped air pressure and money IMO. Where will you be using this amp?

Ill be using it in school concerts, small parties, studios and inside my pad. Im really worried about the impedance thats my major concern. All that impedance crap gives me a headache blink.gif

Just buy a Marshall cab that goes along with that head, and you will be a happy man. IMO 150W is a lot mate, and I play the head you posses in the studio on 4x12 marshall cab made for it and it shakes the ground.

As for power rating goes, it isn't wise to buy a 300W cab because you amp that pumps out 150W of power will be too weak for the speakers and will not drive them properly. They will play lazy and muffled as opposed to 150W cab.

As impedance goes, it isn't a rocket science mate. You only have to match the impedance of the amp to the one from the cab. If the amp pumps out 8Ohm, cab must be 8Ohm. It's that simple.

If you connect 2 cabs in series - impedance doubles ([email protected]=16Ohm)
If you connect 2 cabs in parallel - impedance halfs ([email protected]=4Ohm)

I hope that clears some things mate, cheers smile.gif
