    Any good? It's awful cheap for a 4x12 Marshall cab. GC has them for $250.00 a cabinet.

    Does anyone know what the impedance is on the individual speakers, I know the cabinet is 8 ohms but how wonder how it's wired. Depending on the impedance of the speakers I may do a stereo setup on it..

    For $250, the speakers probably suck. I bought a 4x12 (straight cab) off craigslist with v30's for $350 :D

    AMAZING! :D

    You really gotta crank it to get the best out of the distortion, and it sounds beautiful with 4 v30s. The clean channel is beautiful, and it takes pedals very well.

    The only thing about it that I must mention is that every guitar sounds different through it.. I mean the quality/build/components/etc of the guitar have a HUGE impact... I have my lp with 81/85 that gives me that heavy distorted metal goodness.. then I have a cheap strat copy that sounds amazingly bluesy (even with crappy pickups).. then I have my 7 string that is very muddy/bassy, but perfect for a Meshuggah-like tone.
