Just wondering, when talking about amps and cabinets, what to terms like

2 x 12 and 4 x 12 mean. Are they talking inches? or what?

thanks

inches in size and how many speakers inside the cabinet.
2X12 =two 12" speakers.

combo amp is an amplifier with the tubes (valves) built in the same unit.
a head is a unit that has the tubes that is separate from the cabinet, but powers the cab.

4X12=massive ear bleed. rock on.

Just to add to what Dogbite said, not ALL combo amps have tubes, you'll hear players talk about "solid state" and that just means they use more electronics rather then tubes, but the same idea applies that a combo amp is essentially a head and cabinet in one single unit.
