There's plenty of online mail-order places? What is the model of your monitors?

The first thing to do is determine the spec's you'll need otherwise you'll either over buy or under buy.

Find out the RMS rating for the cabinet then select an amplifier with twice the wattage. It's a good place to start.

Cabinet is another term for a speaker box. Probably not as widely used today but still one of the terms for a speaker box.

i heard them called cabinets all the time and sometimes jsut cabs. i guess its a dying term
 
A dying Term..........hardly, i'm an 18 year old FOH engineer and i don't know what els to call a Speak cab, other then a CAB. "hey, dude, put this speak-on in that cab over there" i mean......... these terms thave been used since the dawning of the Sound board and are still used today. Who the hell is going to say, "Hey nince speaker enclosure!" no one. One simple word...CAB.




^that is by far the stupidest yet not so pointless Rant i have ever done.

I hear them called boxes, cabs, stacks, specific names (W's, horns, j-bins, traps etc), their actual role (sub, low, mid, mid/high etc) as well as their model numbers.

Guess it depends on where you were tought/work.
