2X10 and 4X10 cabs are underrated (for guitarists)

2x10s & 3x10s work great for vintage Fender Bassman, Showman, and Bandmaster heads. Especially open back cabs with a Strat or Tele.

I really want to have a 12/10 cab made. I’ve got a spare EV12L and a EVM10M sitting around that probably would kill together

I really like a closed back 4x10" cab. The Marshall 1965 cab is certainly a defacto standard for this, much like their 4x12" cabs are, too. My ears are certainly tuned to the midrange character of 12" speakers, but multiple 10" sound soooo good.
My Fender Bassman Ten combo has a closed back 4x10" speaker compliment. Even with the tired and loose original Utah speakers, it had a killer punch to it. Replaced those with early 80s Celestion white label G10S-50 and I couldn't be happier. These speakers have a smooth top end, big, tight lows and neutral mids. Perfect match for the closed cab.

Early Montrose, BM + LP. I had no idea. Boy, my BM-ish clone with 10-way tone stack bypass will Rock The Nation indeed!

So, my Bandmaster-ish clone(Avatar) has 3 Classic Alnico Webers. Dream RAWK tones and much more.
Next to it I re-amp a tiny Fryette gp/di valvulator 1W head with internal RL and analog cab/mic sim section. A/B test is surprisingly close...SMH. BTW, using an older Acoustasonic SFX2! Great AITR...analog punch and I can move that "punch" around.
