I am going to have to order online and won't get to try the cab in person - which is a bummer, but the downside of rural life :-)

I am downsizing the rig for my quad to a 1x12 and can't decide which cabinet is best. Tones stay close to the hard rock realm for me....Ranging from Steve Stevens, Pearl Jam, Metallica, etc... Nothing too extreme on either end. Occasionally I use it for bluesy stuff, but often go to a different amp (but really need to dial in channel 1 for this)....

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I'm very happy with my standard Recto 1x12 cab w/ the V30. (NOT the mini recto cab). One of these vids I did has a Mark III in it which will sound similar to your Quad.

I'd go Thiele with EVM12L.

It's an awesome preamp! It's bassically two preamps, channel one is from the Mark IIC, and channel 2 is from the Mark III, minus R2.
