    Thanks Jeremy.

    Not a fan of Jensen ?

    Thanks STv

    So . . . my other cab related question is :

    For that period correct fat, warm, loose low end, mid range focused, 5E3 tone what we all know, what would be the most accurate speaker to get (from currently produced units) ?

    But I think they sound much better run together than individually.
    W O W . . . thanks for the heads up mate

    Currently still in the design process.
    Maybe half is closed and the other an open back ?

    No . . . just changing between songs . . . not during.

    DAMN . . . that sounds even better !!!

    Thanks . . . gotta see how a Marshall style back plate looks like.

There was a painful ice-pick in the ear thing going on in the upper mids that was the whole reason I started looking for another speaker. Doesn't happen at all with the v30 in the closed back cab. :P
    Yeah V30 was kind of designed for Marshall closed-back cabs.

    I agree I think you’d be happier in the end and have more variety with 2 separate 1x12 cabs with different speakers to use individually or together.
