At the second paragraph in the "1993-signed" section of this article, it explains River's 8x10 cabinet. "The one thing Rivers did manage to select before they left for New York was a new Marshall speaker cabinet. Well, it wasn't "new", it was a very unusual 1968 Marshall. This cabinet was from a now-rare series that mounted the usual 4 12" speakers into a special cabinet that was designed to fit 8 10" speakers. These are known as "mock 8x10's". They originally were sold in sets with plexi 50w Tremolo amps. They were manufactured from 1967 till the early 70's, but apparently the later years are distinguished by cheaper materials, particularly particle board backing panels. ...Thanks to Jaques Stompboxes for info and assistance!" It is also shown in the cover of River's album "Alone". https://i.ebayimg.com/thumbs/images/g/p0AAAOSwGYVW~tv5/s-l225.jpgmore
This video by PremeirGuitar.com, from their "Rig Rundown" series features the bassist of Slayer, Tom Araya and his brother/guitar tech discuss his current touring rig. Tom Araya mentions he was given Marshall 8X10 Vintage Cabinets from Marshall. "Yeah, I just use Marshall STOCK heads. There's nothing really special about them. (I like) the brightness and punch. I didn't use Marshall all the time. They made some cabinets for me; better than the cabinets I had and they sounded great. We asked them if they would send me some heads and they sent me the heads. My brother dialed in the tones that I like. This is what I got" - [Tom Araya](https://youtu.be/GlvaYmvyDmk?t=13m2s)more
