The MF280 (280W) and MF400 (400W) cabinets are specially engineered to reproduce the balanced mid range and huge bottom end that are a pre-requisite for extreme hard rock and nu-metal sounds, these cabinets feature:

- Sonically optimised Celestion loudspeaker designs
- Pro-gauge internal wiring
- Increased internal volume
- Metal logo and piping

In keeping with all legendary Marshall cabinets the MF 4x12" cabinets are not only ready for the sonic demands of a high performance head like the MF350, but also the extreme physical abuse they may receive on the road.

We recommend the MF280A (angled) and B (base) for full stack operation and the MF400A or B for half stack operation.

Full Stack versus Half Stack
The MODE FOUR cabinets can be used either as a full stack (two cabinets) or half stack (one cabinet) configuration. The rig you choose is a matter of personal taste and as always when it comes to sound we recommend you try both to see which suits your style best. Below is a guide to the major attributes of each:

Full Stack:
Enhanced on stage spread.
More ’cut through’ due to accentuated treble and high mids.
Iconic stage presence.

Half Stack:
More controllable spread of sound on stage (especially base type)
Convenient and portable.

Half Stack Options

Whether you choose an angled or base half stack configuration is a personal choice between the different tonal qualities of each set up.

The MF400A (angled) is, in keeping with other angled 4x12" cabinets, tonally more aggressive than the base option. The angled cabinet is the usual choice for those who want a more prominent upper mid and treble response that really cuts through in a live situation.

Alternatively, the MF400B (base) delivers a more even mid range with less spread of the aggressive treble response. Marshall 4x12" base cabinets are more often used by professionals as they have a more focused bottom end and a smoother mid range and treble response. They are often easier to deal with in terms of sound reinforcement and monitoring in a live situation.
