First we should talk about what “2x12” means if you are new to the guitar cabinet world and have not already figured it out. “2x12” denotes the number of speakers in the cabinet and the size in inches of that speaker. So this configuration denotes that there are two speakers in the cabinet and each one is a 12 inch speaker. There ya go! Simple as pie. Boy I could eat some pie, but I digress.

Here at N Stuff Music we have a wide selection of 2x12 guitar speaker cabinets. A 2x12 guitar cabinet has a second 12 inch speaker compared to a 1x12 cabinet. The differences between a 2x12 and 1x12 cabinet are mostly self-evident; the 2x12 is going to be heavier as well as bigger in size. The 2x12 is also going to be louder since it is pumping a second speaker. 2x12 speaker cabinets are also able to fit a full size amp head unlike most 1x12 speaker cabinets which typically can only house a small to medium size amp head due to less width. For example the Suhr Pete Thorn signature amplifier is a full size head but the matching cabinet for it is an excellent Suhr PT212 150 watt guitar cabinet. Although it is not going to be as light and as small of a package as a 1x12, a 2x12 guitar cabinet will pack a very big sound with lots of capacity for high-volume and abundance, but will still be a much smaller and transportable package than a 4x10 or 4x12 guitar cabinet.

The 2x12 guitar cabinet is ideal for the player who wants something bigger than a 1x12 either for volume reasons or for a full-size head, but doesn’t want to have the burden of constantly carrying a 4x10 or 4x12 guitar cabinet. The 2x12 is a nice marriage between abundance of sound and transportability.

Our guitar cabinet brands range from 3rd Power, Friedman, Bogner, Mesa/Boogie, Suhr, Marshall, Fender, and others.

Be sure when selecting or playing through a guitar cabinet that your amp and guitar cabinet are rated at the same impedance (in ohms) so that they can both function properly and cooperatively. Some guitar amps contain external speaker jacks for different impedance ratings in which you would have a much wider range of speaker cabinets you could use with the amp.

A key factor in deciding what type of guitar cabinets are going to produce a good sound and be of good quality is what the cabinet is made of. Often times you will see quality cabinets being made of woods such as birch, pine, and other quality woods which not only make for a good sound, but a rather lightweight and durable package as well.

The wattage listed for a speaker cabinet is going to tell what wattage the speakers are capable of handling, wattage that is higher than the speakers will pump too much into the speaker and potentially cause issues to the speaker cabinet and your sound. And also keep in mind you need a cabinet that is equal or greater in impedance than the guitar amp in order for the cabinet to function.
