    Did you try it?

    Is it good?

    Everybody says that the golds needs big cabinets to avoid sounding boxy.... is the PC big enough?

    The PC is perfect. It sounds very full and open. I have heard the PC OS1x12 with a Gold and an Eminence Red Fang and it never sounded boxy. It rivals the sound of a 4x12, really....

    Yeah ok....I have two 1x12 OS and I just wanted to try out the Gold in one of them. They are so expensive so I just wanted to check with someone else first ;o)


    Thanks dude....much appreciated

    BTW...Why is it that TM does not have Elmwood amps????? If you had I would have asked if you have tried one with Celestion Gold ;o)))))

    I am not an employee of TM, I only do their amp repair as a Ind. Contractor. I make suggestions, but ultimately the Manager of TM makes all the amp choice decisions.

    Ahhh..........I see. Thought you might work there as well.... my bad ;o)

    But I can see in your signature that you like Port City as well ;o)))

    If you had to choose, would you prefer one 2x12 OS or two 1x12 OS ??? I'm thinking about trading my 1x12's but I kind of like the portability ;o)

    I'd go for the 1x12 OS, just make sure your speaker can take the wattage of your amp. I recently blew up a Cannabis Rex speaker with my Express clone.....

    Yeah....good point with the wattage ;o)

    I was just thinking that maybe I would get some more huge bottom end and in generel.....bigger sound with the 2x12 OS than with two 1x12 OS', but I did not try to A/B them ;o)

    Maybe you are right about sticking to the 1x12's.....
