    I don't think the 2nd thread was neccesary. :lol:

    But to my knowledge, Bulb really liked to use the Orange 4x12's with an Engl head.

    It's all subjective.. But I'd say probably stay away from vader's for djent. Not alot of speaker cone breakup, and they're pretty scooped sounding.

    In a previous thread, he said a Peavey 6505+ with a boost and EQ.

    AMEN TO THAT! My bandmate plays a 6505 through a Marshall cab and it sounds ok. But when he switched Marshall for my Mesa Rectifier cab it sounded fookin HUGE!!!! :bowdown:

    The Mesa cab is a very common (and praised) 4x12 for the 6505(+). I say go for that since they can be found cheaper then the Orange. :D

    I have an Orange 4x12 and a Mesa 4x12 and I tend to gravitate towards my Orange more. I feel like it responds better and has an overall better tone to it per se. My Mesa is no doubt a beast, but the Orange just has that umph with a little bit of high end to it that the Mesa just doesn't have. But thats just me.

    They are all great cabs, but it really depends on what type of sound you are looking for. The Mesa is a great all around cab that is good for a little of everything. I have used my 5150 II with a Mesa 4x12 and also with my friends Vader 4x12. The Vader is very clear and clean sounding. A little scooped compared to the Mesa, but much more brutal sounding. Great for live stuff...not quite as great for clean stuff though. Not much experience with Orange, but have heard good stuff about them. My friend said he thought it was a little more on the bassy side. Probably a good all around cab as well...just a pain to move cause they are heavy and don't have casters. The Vader cab is the easiest to move around.

    :agreed:
    Carrying round an Orange 4x12 is death. I almost regret going for Orange just because of how heavy they are, but I think the sound is good enough to justify how inconvenient it is.
