Pulled the trigger on a TC-100 today. I want to use a 2 x 12 cab. Does the horizontal or vertical Recto cab work better with this amp?

Several weeks ago I picked up a TC-50 with the horizontal 2x12. I love the way it sounds. I've only played it at bedroom and slightly above bedroom levels. Pretty sure the front man for the blues band I'm playing with would not like me showing up with this amp. He wishes I didn't have any OD pedals on my board.

I originally intended to get the vertical slant. From the posts I was able to find it sounded like what I was looking for. But, I found this head and cabinet on Craigslist at a deal that I couldn't pass up. I may be better off with the horizontal just from a size standpoint. I have a Mazda 3 hatchback. The horizontal 2x12 took up the pretty much the entire back area with the rear seat up. Not sure the vertical would have fit with the seat up.

I have the Road King horizontal 2x12 and the Recto vertical 2x12. Even though they are not the same speakers in each cab, I much prefer the vertical Recto. I like having one speaker aimed closer to my head than my knees. I use this cab with both my TC50 and Mark V. Either will work well, no doubt. I think it's more of a matter of preference.

I picked up the TC-100 recently and have been using it with my Friedman Runt horizontal 212 with v30s. I ordered the Mesa vertical 212 yesterday and expect it on Monday. I’ll report back after I get it.
