    Hi =) It's me again

    Yes, I'm still can't choice cab! ))) :)scream:)

    Just recent history: Armor Darks still looking for cab for ENGL Fireball

    He found Orange 4x12 f/loaded v30 and Vader 4x12 (Eminence Legends mod), Diezel 4x12 v30 f/loaded and can't choice wich will fit the best ENGL Fireball :wallbash:

    Does somebody have any sapmles with ENGL Fireball + Orange or ENGL Fireball + Vader or ENGL Fireball + Diezel cabs? They will help a lot.

    I think you'll find most people on here recommend pairing Orange cabs with ENGL heads, and who am I to argue?

    Try the Diezel out if you can, they have good reputations, plus you wouldn't end up the SS.org cliche too :)

    I've heard it through a Diezel and a Bogner cab. But, I'd still say the Orange wins. The others were great! But, I just dug the Orange cab more.

    Orange seams to be the winner in my books, i tried an A/B test with Engl cabs, mesa cabs, and orange, even tried some others ones out and the Orange still wins, now i would still very much like to try my Mesa out with a Vader cab, but i'm not buying one just to possibly end up selling it again for less to buy an orange

    on that note, anyone in Southern Ontario have a Vader cab they are will to let me test out?

    i´ve played a fireball through an orange 4x12 alot, and also through an orange 2x12 as well. both were awesome as hell! you have to be carefull with the presence knob though, don´t use too much of it. add it in as a little extra sauce, instead.

    This will be a very unpopular opinion but personally I think V30s are not ideal metal speakers at all, no matter how good the cabinet enclosure is.

    I've played Orange cabs, they are one of the better V30 cabs, and certainly everyone is under the assumption you have to play an Orange cab if you own an ENGL, but I think they are just one of several high quality V30 cabs on the market.

    I personally didnt think the ENGL cab I played @ NAMM sounded bad at all, pretty great actually. I think the new and improved Diezel cabs are the best in the business but it's all subjective really. I'm partial to front-loaded cabs nowadays.

    i´m open to tons of other things, and other speakers, but the orange cabs just seem to have that little something. it´s tight, and sounds great in general, so it just works :p

    of course, v30´s aren´t exactly the best speakers out there, seeing as they are farty and flubby and harsh, but in the orange cabs they just sound fantastic :p

    i´d love to try some other speakers in an orange cab too :)

    I've have one blasting through 4x12 mesa but i like my buddys better. He has it going through A Vader Stack 2x15 and 4x12. You cant compete with that tone.

    Mine is running through a genz benz g flex 2x12 and it sounds great. If you get a chance, try one of those out.
