I am shopping for a 4x12 at guitar center (I am using their gear card) and wanted some advise on these cabs for my Mark V 25. Do any of you have any experience with the cabinets below? Is one considered better for heavy music than the others?

Well after driving myself nuts looking at used cabs my wife walked in and said why dont you just buy a Mesa cab so it matches..... I said well because they cost more. She replies but it matches.... So long story short I ordered a brand new Mesa 2x12 vertical cab for 700 shipped. :lol:

Cant wait

In my experience, Mesa amps generally sound better with Mesa cabs.

I would go with a Mesa 1x12 or 2x12 or 4x12 they just sound better than any other cab

Well I got my cabinets in and I tried the Recto-Verb 25 and Mark V 25 on both and found that the Recto-Verb sounded pretty good on the Mesa 2x12 Vertical cab but the Mark V 25 on the Mark DV 2x12 Vertical cab with V30's sounds amazing. So I thought I would share my setups. I think I found a sleeper with the Mark DV cab as it is absolutely killer sounding. I will add some pics later.
