New cab for Peavey XXX?
Just looking for a 4x12 slant cab to match my XXX's power. I was thinking about the Crate Blue Voodoo or something close. I play mainly Death/ Thrash metal. Thanks guys!

any 4x12 will do you really with those requirements.

WHat do you want tonally?

Lots of lows and highs. Without the numetal sound or getting muddy. Basicaly a full rich tone, something that will retain clearity when pushed a bit. Lots of deffinition mainly.

I'd suggest picking up an old second hand marshall 1960a cab for cheap on ebay and replacing two of the G12 75's with vintage 30's :beer: , sounds damn good in my cab

I thought of this as well, here at a couple of local pawnshops I always see some older Marshall's and Kustoms. It might be my best bet for now.

I'm a V30 fan myself. Just make sure, no matter what speakers you get, that they are sealed good to the baffle via T-nuts.

I have the Peavey xxx head matched with a Marshall 1960 cab with 75 watt celestain speakers. It fits my sound well it is brighter and has a more of a midrange punch than the matching Peavey cab which sounds kind of muddy. It stays very tight and doesn't get muddy unless the eq is just set badly.

I know some simple and easy mods that will enhance the performance of even the cheapest cab, but it does help to have quality speakers though.

Wow man! Thats some pretty cool info. Might have give those a shot on the crate I have now.

I have an XXX and run it through the crate blue voodoo cab. Im a fan!

i also have a xxx

smaller cabinets make it sound tighter..higher wattage speakers make it sound cleaner.

it sounds like your seeking the same thing i was,...i wanted note definition,..but not at the sacrifice of a very very heavy sound..(bass u can feel)

here's what i have done to get it.
-standard tuning..(was c#)
-lighter guage strings...9's
-dimarzio drop sonic in the bridge..(i went through 4 different pick ups)
-less gain...
-got rid of the marshall cabs (1960a/1960b) mesa recto cab and a traditional cab,...
-add some level of mids

i havent done it yet but all the guys on the peavey thread swear by the el34 tube change,..right now i am very happy with my sound...

good luck

you have 3 choices ahead
avatar: amazing construction, cheap, the vintage 4x12's sound better than mesa 4x12's, and huge speaker choice
vader: heavy duty construction, look brutal, eminence v12 legend speakers (compared to v30, higher power, same mids, less harshness, more bass), and relatively cheap.
basson: MDF construction (if it gets wet, it will fall apart), cheap, eminence v12 legends... lots of people love them because the mdf gives it a certain sound, but if you get one you cant really let it leave your bedroom hahahha.

My recommendation for you is a vader. They also look brutal. :D
