    Adding v30's to existing low cost cab?

    Gentlemen. Lend me your ears.

    Ok, so a while back I purchased a Bugera 2x12 cab, which you can find specs on HERE.

    Now, while the cab itself was pretty inexpensive, it is pretty sturdy. No complaints there. I think it's made of MDF board, though.

    Anyway, I'm sick of how these speakers sound. The only way I can describe it is... Imagine listening to your cab with pillows wedged in front of the speakers. It doesn't matter what is being fed to the cab.

    What I'm wondering is, would it be worth it to purchase some used V30's and swap them out with the Bugera speakers?

    I'm trying to keep the cost as far below $200 as possible, so if the only valid option would be to buy a whole new cab, I'd have to hold off until sometime early-mid next year.

    Keep in mind, I'm no cab connoisseur. This is my first cab ever. I've only ever used combo amps or direct to PC/monitors.

    Any input is appreciated!

    No. Buy a proper secondhand cab made of decent ply. Not only will it last longer, it will have far more punch and frequencies won't be as damped. By the time you buy 2 V30s you'll be a hop skip and jump away to something decent.

    A used Avatar will be cheap and come with real speakers

    I appreciate the quick responses guys!

    I kinda knew that was going to be my answer. Guess I'll pop this sucker on Craigslist and see what happens.

    Eh, you can give it a try. If it sucks, you can always pop the OEM speakers back in and sell it off, and buy an empty cab for your new V30's
