Wondering if you guys would consider an upward angled baffle on an open back 1x12 cab a big plus? You lose a couple inches of depth on the top half of the cab. Wondering if it's worth it.
Less space can be an issue with combo cabs as they're often made smaller for portability reasons. It's usually not an issue with extension cabs, because a) extension cabs tend to be made deeper than combo cabs in general, and b) you don't have a chassis with tubes hanging down to deal with.Not that angled, more like the avatar in the link above. Square cab w/a slightly angled baffle. The only downside I can think of would be slightly less space inside the cab?
Yes, that's mostly with 4x12"s and those 4x12"s where the baffle is multiple pieces. IME a cab with a slant front but solid baffle offers the best of both worlds. Kind of hard to explain, looking from the front it looks like the baffle would be two pieces, but internally it's one solid piece and the entire thing is on a slant. I'll try and explain better if you'd like.I've also heard people say that they think straight cabs sound fuller than angled, but they're mostly talking about Marshall 4x12's. Not sure if what they're experiencing would be the same with a little 1x12.
