    I'm planning on getting a Vox MV50 AC and I'd like to know if the 108 cab will work or if I should spring for the 112? It'd pretty much just be for bedroom/home recording, so it doesn't have to be super loud.

    Thanks in advance!

    A single 108 is OK... but they sound better in pairs. You can daisy chain them to get a 4 ohm load, which the MV50AC seems to like more than the 8. With two 108s, you won't miss any significant low end.

    I understand that you don’t need a lot of volume but I would try the 1 x 12. I play mine through a larger closed back 1 x 12 that’s loaded with a Jensen MOD 50 and the tone is really full and solid regardless of volume.

    I’d look at Craigslist where nice full sized cabs are abundant. I’ve played my VOX through 2 x 12’s and it sounded sooo nice!

    I worked at a Vox dealer, and when the MV50AC arrived, we tried it with both cabs, and it sounded a million times better with the 112 one.

    I got a deal on the Vox BC112-150 with a 12" Redback. The sound is amazing !

    Last one is only for home use, undisturbing the neighbors...
