Speaker Cabinet Question

Speaker Cabinet Question

There are 2 used Vox speaker cabinets at my local Guitar Center that caught my eye.

1. a Vox V412BK
2. a Vox V412BL

both are priced at $199.

Ive been researching them a little and reading reviews and they both have decent reviews but I was hoping to find someone on GS who has had some experience with them or knows a little about them.

Are they worth $199 each? (I'm only getting one)

What is the difference between BK and BL?

Would either be better quality than what I have?

Here's what I have now:
Head: Crate Palomino V32 Tube Head (30 Watts)
Cabinet: Crate Flexwave series 4x12 Straight Cab.

I play a lot of Praise gigs at my church and we don't usually mic my amp, so I need something that will project well.

Thanks in advance.

It's $200 for a 4x12 cabinet, so it's not going to be the best. Hard to say without plugging in your amp and playing through it.

Are you saying you need 2 4x12 cabs to play in your praise band? I fear for the congregation. Do you normally not mic it because you don't have extra mic channels on the mixer, or you'd rather not? No one today needs a double stack; few acts that have them actually even have both top and bottom plugged in!

oh no, I don't need two stacks. that would be scary... this Vox cabinet is just a little smaller than the one I have now an it would fit in my car easier and be easier to load/unload because I'm usually loading/unloading by myself.

And also, I really like the Vox cab for it's looks...

So mainly, I want it for the convenience and for looks, but not if that means I have to sacrifice sound quality.
