Changing speakers or creating a cab?


New member
I have a Peavey Invective 120 and a Peavey Invective .212 cab which are my go-to amp and cab. The Invective 212 cab has 2 different types of speakers (the 412 does as well, just two more and they are mounted in an X pattern), one Celestion Vintage 30 and one Celestion G12-H Creamback. This cab sounds amazing and from the time I got it has taken the place of my Mesa 2x12 Horizontal cab. It sounds amazing with any amp I plug into it, but there is something about the Invective 120 that doesn't just sound better, it sounds like to two are meant to be paired together.

I can't find an Invective cab sim anywhere. Not an IR, but a cab sim. I want to be able to tweak it. So I have been searching everywhere for an alternative, like maybe a custom cab in one of the IR packages, that has the same combination of speakers, but I can't find it anywhere. There are a few Beast cabs that are 4x12 cabs that have 4 different speakers in them, but I can't find a closed back 2x12 or 4x12 cab with V-30s and Creambacks anywhere. Last night I went through the entire Two Notes "Complete Guitar Package", which supposedly has every cab available from Two Notes, but could not find what I am looking for there either.

I figured I would be good with just about any 212 or 412 cab with this pairing of speakers in it, but I just can't find it. Is there something I am missing. There are a great many descriptions of cabs on the Two Notes site that say merely "using Celestion speakers" rather than specifying the TYPE of speaker. I was wondering if maybe they do that on descriptions of cabs that use more than one type of speaker? If so, this is bass-ackwards AF! To fully describe cabs loaded with 2 or 4 of the SAME speaker, but go slack on your descriptions when they involve more than one speaker type is a concept that seems completely asinine to me, and I can't be alone in this line of thinking. I digress, any suggestions that could be of help here would be greatly appreciated. The general idea here is that I would like to have a rig in my C.A.B. M+ that is ideally, the same or as close as I can possibly get to the actual rig I use live. If I can't find an Invective 212 cab, then perhaps a Fortin or Mesa (or the like) horizontal 212 closed back with the same V-30/Creamback speaker pairing.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions
