I've realized that I prefer open back cabs to closed back. I have a 2x12 closed back loaded with Celestion Golds, but the sound is VERY directional, and the bass gets too mushy. I'm using a JTM45 style amp which are known for their tight bass, but I can control it with proper EQ'ing. So, I'm looking for a big sounding 2x12 open back/semi open back cab that has a tight bass response. I love hearing "thump" on the low strings instead of "boom." I'm intersted in the Avatar Vintage cab, mainly because of the price, but do you guys have any other suggestions about other cabs or feedback on the Avatar? Thanks!
