Code 100H into a 1960 4x12 cab ?


Hi guys, im new to head and cabs as i have been a combo guy for years. I recently purchased a code 100 Head and i really do not want to use the code cabinet and want to get a better upgrade. I have a guy selling a 2004 1960A cab for $500 AUD OR I was thinking of getting either a 4x12 origin cab or a 4x12 SC cab. 

any ideas ? 

thanks :)

Hi Johnathan,

Thank you for getting in touch, the Origin cabs are 16ohms so will not work as the Code has an 8ohm output, as long as the cab you get has an 8ohm input and matches the wattage, you should be fine with a change of cab.

Hope this helps

Kind Regards

I tried to connect a 4 Ohm HiFi loudspeaker to my Marshall Code 25 to the external loudspeaker connection that was easily built in later. Without loudspeaker simulation, the HIFI Speaker sounds like a piezo loudspeaker from a cheap children toy. It sounds much  better with the Code speaker simulators. Well done Marshall! However, it sounds still too much like baby squawking and there is not enough pressure on it. In any case, it's not much fun. It really sounds good with my 4x12 Vintage30/Greenback Mixture Cabinet. Just as I expect when I compare it with my 1987x or JTM45 with THD Hot Plate attached. Well, you need good speakers. If the Marshall Code cabinet is good enough, I can't answer. But I'm sure HIFI speaker were not used by Marshall.
