Just got a Z open back 2x10 with Zs own speakers to use with a Z28 head and all I can say is wow. Tight clear low end, nice mids and best of all no shrill high end.Punchy clear and sweet. I bought the cab to run with a 1x12 cab loaded with a Weber Alnico BD but, I may just use this cab by itself. I'll try them together at practice on Sunday and report back.
To top it off this baby is built like a tank!
Me so happy

Dr Z puts a lens, or ring around the 10's to give it a better bass response. My Maz Jr 2x10 was great for tight lows.

I agree. I use one with my Carmen Ghia head and it just sounds huge. Big on tone and easy on my old back.

I use two Z 10's in a non Z cab and I have to say that the speakers do a lot of the work. My Z28 thru this cab sound damn near as big as my Z28 2x10 combo.

Good ****!!! :AOK

I have had one of the Z-2X10 cabinets for about 8 months and I don't
think that their is a better sounding 2X10 cabinet and the small size
of this cabinet makes it a giant killer!!

Great Cab that really sounds great with even lower powered amps
like the Carmenghia and the Z-28 and I have a Fuchs Audio "LUCKY 7"
that sounds awfully good for just a 7 watt amplifier!! If you get a
chance plug into the "L7" through a Z-2X10 cabinet you will be
pleasantly surprised!

The other thing (some) people may not realize is that these speakers really handle a lot of wattage and volume.....rated at 70 watts each; the (total) cab will take 140!....plenty for most people I think.

Love the Z 10's. They seem to work with a lot of different amps. I'd love to load some in my 2x10 cab... does Z sell the 10's direct?

I use 4 Dr Z 10's in a Marshall 1965 straight cab, and you talk about fat!!! Although the Z cabs are probably tuned to the speaker quite a bit better, i agree with Laroosco, alot of it is in the speaker. They can handle a ton of volume.... I'm using that cab with either the Maz 18, or the R/X. The more volume that you give them, the sweeter they get in the lows....

They have a ton of punch-push all the right freq.I agree the louder you play the better they sound.
One thing I did notice is there is no way to hide with these speakers/cab-kinda like Z amps-they will expose what I play- good or bad. I like that though. Should make me a better player with some effort on my part.

I've been playing through a Dr Z 4X10 cab with Z's speakers for a few years and it sounds great whether clean or overdriven. You have not heard what the Z Route 66 can do until you open it up through his 4X10. Also, my Budda Stringmaster kills through this cab, as well as my Demeter. I love the way the bottom stays tight and never gets flabby. I'm thinking/hearing at 4 Ohms I'm getting better headroom and punch.
FWIW,
Rick

Maybe I need to break in the speakers in my Z 2x10 more. I was expecting to be blown away by it, as I have historically loved 10" speakers. There is a nasaly midrange characteristic that I can't seem to eq out. I have a Carmen Ghia, Maz 18 Jr NR, and a Route 66. Same with all. As a result I have not used it much. Instead I resort to my Z 1x12 or Z-best. Comments or suggestions?
