    I prefer 2 16 ohm cabs for a grand total of 8ohms

    Since your AVT cab is 8 ohm you will have to go with another 8 ohm cab. Personally, I would ditch the AVT cab and find a proper 1960 (1960B, 1960BV or 1960BX) 16 ohm cab.
    Spend your hard earned cash on a good quality cab first. One good 1960 cab will slay two AVT cabs. Now, that's just my opinion but I bet 99% of Marshall tube amp users would agree.

    I believe our job is done when an inquirer responds re: the watts-ohms details: he is well on the path to acquiring his first 1960A or 1960B.

    We can hope he later finds that “perfect quad” in an original cab, but as you can see, everyday I’m working hard to make this difficult by taking as many off the market because 92 cabinets might not be as efficient as an even 100.

    Treat yourself to at least FOUR cabs in its’ place. High road mode / high current mode. B+ positive

    i am very happy to inform this thread that a proper 1960 cab has taken root ,as far as burning that chinasor dead with fire (the 4x12 avt) not so sure about that ,i could sell it or figure out how to run it in a stack with my 1960b vintage .

    I need to build a headboard for my bed and thinking a 1959 head shell scaled up to queensize would be interesting. Certainly in keeping with the amp / cab / guitar interior design of the rest of the house. Also instant Kryptonite to women who think I should 'grow up'.

    Get that newfangled 16-ohm-labelled nonsense outta here

    You should be ashamed of yourself

    um yeah ,ok what's the difference between the speakers in your picture and the speaker in my picture ? and isn't my 1960b or 1960bv cab a step up from the 8 ohm chinosaur?
    i want distortion and heavy metal ,are some speakers good for a certain type of music?
