Have an Orange Micro Terror Dark and am about to either build a 4x12 or a 2x12. Big fan of the grungy glam sound of T.Rex and Slade. Any suggestions on which speakers I should purchase.

Here is a good example of the T.Rex sound - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ayDFbZJ1qQ

Thanks.

Kinda impossible to tell the speakers from a recording considering all the variables. Take a look here:

I'd say go for something that offers the character you want with some versatility. I'd go for a 2x12" with either a Green Beret or Invader 50 and a Reaper of some sort. Maybe find (or special order) a Reaper 30 55Hz for the deep punch and extra 4kHz+ chime. The Invader 50 would reduce ~3kHz harshness and should have clearer/deeper bass than the Green Beret.
