    I'm contemplating picking up a 1x12 for smaller rooms to use with my Bogner Shiva head. I currently use a Mojo slanted 2x12 which is great. My only reservation is the inability to tilt the head/1x12. I've never warmed up to 1x12s pointing at the back of my legs.

    Does anyone make a slanted 1x12 wide enough to support a head? Would an open back 1x12 be a solution?

    Thx-

    Look at ported. The Port City OS Wave cabs sound incredible, and you get the best of both worlds (open and closed back). The clarity and projection is there for sure.

    Just put a couple of rubber door stops under the front of the cab.

    I used my Mesa widebody 1x12 with my Soldano Hr 50 and it worked great. I used it on an amp stand to decouple from the floor and get the tilt back.

    I'm not saying one doesn't exist, but I've never seen a slant 1x12. I love slant 2x12 cabs and always have my eye open for them.

    I designed a slanted 2x12. The upper speaker is tilted back 22.5 degrees. The cab dimentions are 16 x 16 x 32. This gives a square footprint on stage. Internal dimentions are different.

    Did you place the cab on a stand or the head? If the cab, I assume it was tilted back? What did you do with the head?

    I actually have the same cab which is great.

    I have a Groove Tubes 1X12 cab that has a slanted front. It's really lightweight for resonance, and it has a removeable plug in back for open/closed back options. I use it with my my Groove Tubes Soul-o 45. For rehearsals and small rooms it's great- for larger rooms I put it on top of my deep Groove Tubes 1X12 for a mini-stack arrangement. Works great- sounds great!

    it looked like a Monitor so it sat on the floor like a monitor would,my head would either be on its 4x12 sister or sitting on its flight case beside me

    I just made a oversized 1x12 for my dlite. I used a angled baffle to achieve what you are talking about. It sounds great!
