    Hello everybody, my name is Matteo Baratella, I am from Italy, I am trying to build my first guitar cabinet for the Marshall AVT150H pre-amp head. (150 watt output - impendence 4/8 ohm).

    My cabinet...
    .. is 70 x 70 x 30 cms = 27,5 x 27,5 x 11,8 inches with a thickness of 1,8 cms = 7,08 inches.

    My questions concern which speakers to choose. (I would like 12' speakers)
    I would like to mix one 12' Celestion and one 12' Jensen speaker.

    - Do I have to overcome the watt head output of 150 watts?
    So, do I have to buy one 80 watt Celestion and one 80 watt Jensen = 160 watt output cabin power (?)

    - Can I mix these two different brands? How can I know which one will not match with the other?

    - Do I have to worry about the internal liters of my cabin even if it's an open back cabin?

    Thank you for your time
    Have a nice day!!
    Matteo

    Welcome, looks good.

    You just need to have them the same resistance in ohms to match them.

    Thank you for your reply! What about the output watt power of my cabinet ?
    Should I buy two speakers of at least 80watts each to overcome the 150watt output of my Marshall head?
