Lots of thump in the closed back. CB essential for real metal. The right speakers are critical too. V30, Greenbacks, etc. Matt Got questions? Get answers over the phone at Keen.com. Up to 100 minutes free! http://www.keen.com
An open back cab is much louder onstage to the band than a closed back cab. The closed cabinets project further though. So if you are on stage outside or in a big hall the closed back shoots the sound out farther. The open back cabs and combos are better for club use. They give the entire band more volume from the guitarist without having him loud in the monitor mix. * Sent from RemarQ http://www.remarq.com The Internet’s Discussion Network * The fastest and easiest way to search and participate in Usenet – Free!
What would be the difference in sound between closed & open end cabinets? Would I buy a closed cabinet for ‘Heavy Metal’ playing or open end? Any infromation is appreciated. Gary
My preference is closed as you get more db on the eardrums of the audience members per watt output because they project forward. Open back will provide more omnidirectional sound which is good if you need to monitor yourself or allow the other band members to hear you. But likewise you have less control over feedback and all that sound bouncing off the wall behind the amp might be considered a waste. Closed seems more punchy too. – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text – > What would be the difference in sound between closed & open end cabinets?

Question, I have a Mesa Dual Rectifier……will 4×12 Greenbacks be appropriate? Thanks for your response in advance. `Gary’s Black Sabbath` http://members.aol.com/Sabbath141/index.html
