Decent 2x12 Cabinets?

OK, I have a 4x10 cabinet in my basement, but it is too large to fit into my car for transportation. I am wondering, what are some good 2x12 cabinets that I could swing for around $200-$350? I know thats cheap but I don't have a hell of a lot to work with,

I am basically looking for something that is going to have good headroom, portability, and preferably something that will compliment my PeaveyTriple XXX Head.

Thanks

As much as the Genz-benz entices me, I am afraid I have about $250 to work with. Any other suggestions? I mean, I really just need this for practicing with my band(s) and a 4x10 isn't easy to lug around.

Cheers

I second the Avatar suggestion, cheap, nicely made, and you can choose your speakers.

Speakers are voiced differently,you need to elaborate on what tone you want.If your not too sure,go v30s or G12T-75's.

Well, I guess I want a very clear, tight sound from my speakers. I don't want one of those vintage sounding speakers that have too much low end and no treble, like old Fender amps, for example. I hope that helps. Could someone explain the differences between the basic makes of speakers there are?

Cheers

Errrm, I might be wrong, but I feel pretty confident saying that old fender amp has got damn bright speakers

Maybe you are asking for eminence legend speakers, I heard they have lots of low end and lack treble

edit: or maybe their name was V12's .. I dont remember, check out eminence website
