    You should get another 8ohm cab and set your amp ohm selector at 4 if both are plugged in.

    You must burn that 8-ohm Chinosaur dead with fire.

    It will only poison the pick-eardrum continuum. Your neurological health is at stake - is it worth it?

    Please notify us immediately when this illness was remediate and proper 1960 series cab takes root.

    Thank You.

    Yes. 16 ohms, watts don’t matter, it’s whatever you can find.

    If it’s your first Marshall head, all 1960 series from 1965 up to present are the same dimensions.

    The JCM800&900 cabs had 75 watt Celestion speakers for a 300 watt total rating.

    If you buy used, take a Phillips screwdriver or drill and take the back off your next prospect to verify true contents. 17 screws yeah it’s a process...

    Or, look through the jack plate: 4 screws. Check all 4 are matching.

    Los Angeles prices average $350 for slants and $450 for straights w 75’s.

    With Vintage 30’s expect to add $150.

    With torn tolex, rashed-out back and bottom, no wheels, cracked handles, busted logo, grille stains/smells/damage, deduct $150-$450.

    Outside a Metropolitan area, add $50-$200.

    Four cabs is a good start, however it takes 8 1960B cabs to really support a Cal King futon as a mattress foundation properly.

    Four cabs is a good start, however it takes 8 1960B cabs to really support a Cal King futon as a mattress foundation properly.

    So think early, and often, about eight cabs.

    But some people go yet another two across, so is that somehow “selfish” you might ask? To hoarde so many cabs? The answer is no because you’re planning to entertain others. It is absolutely acceptable.

    Even more acceptable is: receiving yet another ten cabs from friends and family for Christmas- in the spirit of Caring and Sharing? Why absolutely.

    Ten on your side of the stage, ten on the other side. You know the one: where the guy with only four strings you couldn’t hear anyways stands. That side could use more guitar.

    Come to think about it? Twenty 4X12s could be just the beginnings of a New Era of Fly Hardware... yes it is certainly sparse up each side of the stage.

    So, in summary (and in a larger venue think of doubling this scheme) let’s get twenty cabs in your back line, twenty up into the Stage Left lighting truss, twenty on the Right.

    If the line array or lighting rigs are in the way, we’ll have to reduce blockage so keep the lift nearby as required.

    There you have it Sir. The answer is: you need SIXTY.

    Why is it not arcane for Marshall to make an office fridge resemble a half stack but, if I use a couple extra cabs as a sleeping platform to resemble a bed, you think it’s odd?

    Hide-a-bed, hide-a-backline.

    Problem meets solution.

    Madame Candidate once coined the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child” but place that same kid upon a platform with sixty Marshall cabs beneath him and he should rise up in the air 20 feet at least.

    Remember Hannibal’s crossing of the Alps w elephants on the road to invading Rome?

    More Marshall cabinets, fewer elephants: the math is clear. That’s what I’m saying.

    Are you trying to wage nuclear war on someone three city blocks away?

    A higher-end cab will already have like +50% more volume (loudness) vs. the valvestate

    I like peas. They are loaded with fibre and have a surprising amount of protein.

    Columbus sailed what? The ocean blue.

    Except a truer date: year 1400, & 92 Marshall cabs he blew those sails on are undocumented as yet.

    PS

    It's a JCM 800. If anyone recommends paying good money to use it with T75's, use the valvestate cab for its intended purpose --- hurl it at the infidel's head

    What you really need are g12-65's and/or old g12-80's...Mesa MC90's should work just fine as well

    Denying these hypotheses Christopher Columbus utilized advanced, futuristic sonic propulsion resembling 46 stacks of our modern-day Marshalls to convey his Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria exploration craft across the Atlantic does seem cloudy at first.

    But when the actual distribution of stacks-to-boats ratio becomes known, this problem will actually resolve itself. I am sure of this.
