One of my favorite bass players and a good buddy of mine named Kim Stone used to use Tech Sound Systems from Salwender. As far as I know, the only speaker enclosures they have all include 12-inch speakers exclusively (I haven't seen anything else). MAN!!! What a beefy sound he got out of those! They also have plenty of punch to 'em, plus they come with a horn for some nice crisp highs. Fantastic sounding stuff.
Also, Sven Pippien (I guess that's his name) from the Black Crowes was using a set of four Epifani 2x12 speakers when they came to town with Jimmy Page. Although the concert itself was too loud to make an accurate estimate on tone, I'm guessing he got some pretty good tone out of it! And the bitch of it is that he was powering all those speakers with a simple Hartke head...that's it! No rack system, no tuner, nothing but the head! It was pretty odd!
If you're looking for a nice ballsy setup, I'd say go for the Marshalls! If you decide against them, you might want to investigate Tech and Epifani, as well as Bag End and Eden for their 12" stuff.
