I got this cab to use with my Traynor Custom Special 50 head. I didn't want a 4x12 because I've got to carry this thing up and down a flight of stairs in my house as well as up and down the front steps whenever I bring this thing out. Also, I've got a small car so I doubt a 4x12 would fit. I finally settled on this amp after doing lots of research on available cabs and comparing them on a specs versus cost comparison. This one was the best by far. None of the major brands out there came close to offering a 2x12 in this price range that was this good. Most 2x12 cabs in this price range are either particle board or MDF. The Custom Valve 112 cabinet is built of plywood like many of the high end models offered by Marshall, Orange or Mesa (or anyone else in the high end market for that matter). Also, I've yet to see a cab in this price range that had Celestians... the only thing that would have been better was Celestian Vintage 30's but there's only so much you can expect when trying to keep costs under control. Also, I'd like to point out that this is intended to be an extension cab for higher powered amps in Traynor's Custom Valve Series, so the speakers needed to handle more power than my amp produces. Overall I'm very satisfied with this cab. It suits my portability needs and being a player with close to 20 years experience I consider myself to be picky about my tone. Before I found this cab I was ready to raise my budget and go for something from the above mentioned companies but this cab had what I was looking for at the best price.
