Ideally with 8, 10 or 12" cones rated at least 600w at 4 ohms.
The smaller the better.

That's not 600w or more.
Hi Bileofwood. Don't get too hung up on the wattage quoted by cab makers - it's almost meaningless in the real world. It only refers to the thermal rating of the speakers and most cabs will sound awful long before you reach the thermal rating.
Have a listen to the cab at gig volume and decide if you like it and just ignore the wattage. I know nothing about Marshall bass cabs except having listened to a band where the (excellent) bass player was using a Marshall 4 x 10 and the sound was actually so dreadful that it spoiled the gig for me. The cab above might suit you though so I'd say give it a try.;)
What's your budget? Would "slightly bigger than a 4x10" be too big?
There is a guy on basschat selling a Schroeder 1210R:
I have the 1212l and its a fantastic cab. One hand lift and plenty loud.
Yeah, I was looking at those Schroeders actually. Tasty.
Pretty tempted by that...
Anything by than a 2x10/12 would be too big. Things is, I didn't buy that head in question so my options are open again.
Thanks for input chaps.
Peavey 1x15 8ohm for under £200.
Have a look at the Fender Rumble 2x8"
I had a Schroeder 1212L for a couple of years. Great cab and very LOUD.
Doesn't go [u:d6abc118ce]very[/u:d6abc118ce] deep because it's small, but deep enough and it's easily loud enough for any pub gig.
A good choice.
