M9 Carbine Cab Suggestions

Post by etymabass » Sat Feb 27, 2016 4:30 am

I just acquired a 900 watt (yes, the old 900 watt) M9 Carbine head, and now I'm wanting to pair it with transportable Mesa cabs (so no 6x10, 8x10, 4x12, or 2x15). I was thinking of going the Traditional Powerhouse 4x10 and 2x10 route, but what about mixing cabs and going the Standard 2x12 and Standard 2x10 route? I know, I know, a lot of people frown upon mixing cabs, but would this be any different, maybe? Any other suggestions?

If you want portable, two 1x12s or two 2x10s.

If you want slightly less portable, two 4x10s.

It's more common to mix a 410 and 115. I don't like it personally as its a lot less clear than a single driver. Try it out at a store and compare if you can.
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.
