Depends on what you are looking for.

I used to have 2 ppc412's. Now I have just a single ppc212.

412 pros

When they were stacked, they were super fun to play through. Hard to beat that feeling.

Bassier tone (only a pro if that is what you are after)

412 cons

The 412 is heavy... like really heavy. The 212 is much easier to move around. If you have a practice space and don't plan on moving it around much for gigs, the 412 would be a fun one to have but if you are doing alot of shows, I would guess you will tire of moving it very quickly.

The 212 is a better tone to my ear. Punchier bass and a bit more clarity. Again, this is subjective depending on what you prefer for tone.



There could be some nice flexibility in having a ppc212 and 412. You could then use the 212 for a lighter rig, the 412 if your back feels well rested, and a 412/212 stack if you want to just have a great time.

I miss my 412s purely for the look but that is it.

Go ahead for the 4X12 !! Life is short :)
More air displacement, wider sound spread, and not necessarely louder. The only cons is the transport.

What about 2 2X12 ?
