@Harley,

well that's a compliment if there ever was one  :thumb-up:

I personally wouldn't mind a little scoop a for certain sounds that I feel have a more of a thrash style to them but it's hard to balance this out for the rest of the non scooped sounds.  Well actually not so much the guitar, it just means if I change, then the bassist has to change other wise the EQ is all out of balance.  Now when I say scoop. I mean subtle.  But I haven't tried this in a few years, it's just all mids.

Those orange cabs where I think the smaller ones, I don't recall wheels unless these where taken off.  It's kind like house backline those cabs.  I think the bass couples very well with the stage and surroundings in that venue.  Generally though it's f**king feedback fest probably with all the sound bouncing around!  I have half my cabs filled with vintage 30's and half filled with Eminence cv-75's.  There is a lot more mids I feel from the eminence which are meant to sound like broken in vintage 30's.  Scored some celestion g12t-75 brna dnew for real cheap recently, thinking of loading a marshall 4x12" with half those and half something else.

Gerry,

    If they were the smaller 4x12 cabs, then those are the Crush Pro 4x12's and they are loaded with Orange's "Voice of the World" speakers. I haven't had a chance to audition those yet, but now you have me curious.

You're right Harley, it's those cabs because their are always two little Orange Crush amps supplied as well......which I always set to the side hahahahaha.  Someone told me they are ok though but I couldn't be bothered trying one of them.

I like the cabs though, I thought they were nice.  I wouldn't turn my nose up at one if it landed at my doorstep.

I remember trying an Orange Crush combo about 12 years ago, it was alright but not my kind of sound. If I were to ever get into 4x12 cabs, I'd probably go with the larger one with Vintage 30's, but I doubt that I will ever so that. The Split-Stack cabs are so much easier to transport.
Now that I've got the Peavey poweramps in the rigs, I may swap out the current Celestions for vintage 30's though. Those are probably the only ones I like from Celestion.
