    So apparently everyone is making these narrow 2x12 vertical cabs now. I’m looking at getting one but can’t find any real reviews or opinions on them anywhere. Have any of you guys played any of the several Marshall variants of these and how do they sound??? Lots of other brands making these too.

    I have a couple of the Mesa metal grill Thiele 2x12s that are fantastic. Also like the Avatar contemporary 2x12s—not sure they are marketed as such, but I have a couple that have been vertical since I’ve owned them lol.

    Remember, smaller isn’t necessarily better with cabs

    A lot more portable than a 4x12, bigger sound than a 1x12. I have two Marshall MX212A's. I like 'em.

    my guess is that they've become a lot more popular since those mini-heads have become popular. Are you trying to buy a Marshall vertical 2x12 or another company like Avatar, Sourmash, Mojotone, etc?

    You can always just turn it sideways, have feet on the bottom and the side so you can choose.

    Not exactly the same thing, but I have my 1x12 DSL sitting on top of a 1x12 speaker cab, so in a sense it’s like a vertical 2x12.

    I tried having both on the floor separated a little but liked them stacked better.

    Only have a Boss Katana 2x12 cab, bought alongs8de my Katana100w head. It came with additional rubber feet, to allow taller narrower footprint if wanted....I guess I thought all (non-angled type) 2x12s were this way, but I am far from experienced to know for sure.
    It's been relegated to ornamental use only, since I bought the Marshall head plus 4x12.

    Marshall makes a couple. I haven't played them. Don't know why they wouldn't sound great. I like that the top speaker is angled towards your head.
    Origin 212A. Traynor also makes one that is V30 loaded.

    for those with space restraints the vertical 2x12 does have a smaller foot print....
