I load a Marshall 1912 cab with the speaker I want for voicing. They work for bass, as they are front ported.

Usually an EV12S, but right now I am having fun with a Celestion Sidewinder (150w 8ohm, the orig spec for a 1912 cab) with a Bassman 70 rigged with 6550 output valves (as originally intended, I reckon). For HUGE I put it on top of a Sidewinder loaded Marshall Jubilee sereis 1x15. Takes it all down to 4ohms, the native load for a Bassman. Works for guitar, too, of course.

Even the MDF (choke) cabs cut it.

I guess it works out relatively expensive @ about the same as the new retail for a 1912 (overpriced with the icky Chinese 150B in 'em).

The most portable option I have found...
Shut that thing off and get to bed!

For small cabs, these absolutely rule!
However, I'll admit I'm more of an ampeg/eden man myself (Yes, I know those two are worlds apart, but those are the extremes of those worlds I like the best! :lol: )

I read the new Reeves 115 cabs are very good
