View Full Version : New cabinet, open back or closed for 10's?

I traded some gear for an older small company oversized 1x12, turns out it was also ported for a 1x10. so to pair with the greenback I ordered a WGS Vetran 10. Installed it today and man I'm in love with the tone! Running my Matchless it sounds very rich and more defined that my marshll 212 or mesa 412 or 112. It's my first experience with 10's so was wanting some opinions of if I should build a baffle between the two speakers and maybe even open up part of the back of the 10 side? it was suggested by a close friend/gear and guitar wizard. anybody experienced with mixed between 12's and 10's? I'm not afraid to experiment so any suggestions would be great! I think after all the tweaking is done I'm gonna build a much nicer/prettier version of this speaker box for nice gigs and keep the old one around for the rough stuff.

I've never heard of a cab with those two speakers in it...must be interesting though. You probably will be telling us what sounds good. I could see the Veteran adding some stuff the Greenback doesn't have but isn't the Veteran more efficient than the Greenie and it's difficult to hear the Greenback?

I think interesting is the perfect way to describe it. I've got about 3 hours playing it now and I really like it. The speakers are totally different but seem to blend well. Haven't gotten it cranked up yet but on clean/slightly dirty it sounds really well rounded. The 10 seems to bring out a little more sparkle while i still get the nice creamy cone breakup form the greenback. I think this week I'm going to install a baffle this week between the two and see if it changes for the better or worse. and then I'll try opening up different sections of the back. The nice thing about a cheap cabinet is that guys like me that like to experiment aren't afraid to hurt a big money cab! so the tweaking will continue!
