I've decided to get myself a Randall RD45 Diavlo head and will be getting either a 1x12 or 2x12 cab to go with it. However, I really don't know what to look for when it comes to matching head wattage versus speaker wattage. I know I have to match the speakers ohms to the right output on the head, but what power handling capacity should I look for with this 45watt head?
If I go with a 2x12, I could play it safe and go with the RD212 cabinet. I just question the quality of the Randall speaks. I have also thought of the Randall ISOBox for a 1x12 solution, since it has a Celestion V30 and would help tame the noise a bit at home. Would I be able to crank the amp with that setup, since the speaker is rated for 60watts?
Any other suggestions for around $400.?
Can you not score a used mesa 212 for little over $400? I've seen them go for £4-500 over here and I know Mesa prices are usually $1 =/= £1
