Hey guys, I'm still going strong with mine. I have an Allen Old Flame that sounds just great and honestly I think the axefx cleans are better. By the way, I finally dumped my Epifani bass cabs which I was using as a full range (non powered) cab to run with the axefx. I have settled on a 2x12 open-back cab with Celestion G12H-65 reissue speakers. I believe this is the best sounding speaker setup for the axefx. Here's my theory about full range speakers for guitar: Most of the full range cabs available have a crossover that switches over to the mid-range driver at a much lower frequency than a typical guitar signal which can reach up to about 4k-5k. Additionally, many of the UL speakers employed today in modern full range cabinets were designed as woofers and cannot reproduce anything over 2k. Because of this, much of the guitar signal goes through the midrange driver. This causes the guitar to sound a tad nasally and brittle and more directional than a typical guitar speaker. Running the axefx through a transistor power amp and then through an open back 2x12 cab yields brilliant and beautiful results and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the best boutique clean tones and the axefx in this context. I can get close with a full range cab but I have to make sure I'm off axis from the horn or I will get a bright spike in the tone. I'm still using a MarkBass LMII for an amp. I'd like to switch to a single space rack power amp but haven't found anything small enough (single space) and light enough.
