It has a Texas Heat and Swamp Thang in it and it sounds huge. I think porting a cab with C-Rex's would probably sound great.

    Wow, that ported 2x12 probably sounds pretty damn good with the TH and ST in there! That is a cool idea. I may have to try a ported 2x12 loaded with CRex speakers one day.

    I am going to go without a port for this first one though. I have also decided to order with a covertible option featuring a 3/4 open design.

    I still can't make up my mind on the tolex though. Black and blue is my $%!+, but I do think his Oxblood suggestion will look stylish as hell if I go with it....

      What colour is the head that's going to sit on top of this beast?

      Black grill and blue snakeskin would be sweet regardless, personally in my head I don't get as excited about a black head on oxblood grill with blue snakeskin.

      Mismatch can work though, and if you like the look of it who cares!

        One head I will use with it is going to get wrapped in the same blue snakeskin hopefully by the end of the year, the other one is the H&K GrandMeister 40, so technically it is blue and black.

        Good point though. I think I would like to stick to the blue and black theme in the end.

          a tuned ported cab is a sweet thing, a random hole... meh id prefer closed. my only 2x12 is a vibroking cab and i think it sounds awesome. i dont play heavy music anymore but a tuned ported cab can be sweet for the chugs

          as far as the grill cloth, black is a safe easy choice. itll look great with anything. oxblood would look terrific as long as whatever else youre using at least sorta matches it. if you have a grey head, it aint gonna jive with oxblood.

            I agree. I love ported bass cabs especially. I play a wide range of music from sparkly cleans to heavy riffs. So, I tend to go for a balanced cab sound that can just do it all okay instead of nailing one sound specifically.

            I decided to go with the Mesa Black Jute cloth. I think it will provide some venom for the bite.

                  I agree! I am very excited about it. My new Hughes & Kettner is sitting in the box, waiting for an invitation to come out and play...

                      Cab looks killer. That's going to be sweet with C-Rex's. And the H&K to boot.

                        I agree, it does look great and I can't wait to crank the H&K through this cab!

                            Any chance of that back falling off? lol

                            Congrats, that is downright spicy looking. I really like the 212 designs with staggered speakers. If running just one 212 cab that is the way to go IMO.

                              Yeah, that's a heavy duty back, there!
                              It looks great! Hopefully it sounds as good as it looks. I bet it will look great on stage.
