    Which one sounds close to a Greenback? I would like to go to a 1x12 cab for certain gigs but I need at least a 50 watt speaker. I have Greenbacks in my 4x12 and love the sound but I don't want to carry it to small gigs.

    Eminence says their "Private Jack" is close to a Greenback, but some people seem to differ on that opinion. I would like to know more about the Private Jack, wish I could afford one of each Eminence speaker to experiment with!

    Hopefully somebody with more experience will chime in.

    I heard that one was like a Greenback but you really can't tell from the clips on there site. I have read that a Vintage 30 was like a Greenback and they are way different.

    I bought a cheap eminence cab from MF that was loaded with Legend V128's and played it side by side with a 2x12 I had English G12M's in and they were very, very similar sounding in very different cabinets. My $.02

    To me, the Private Jack sounds very much like the Greenback. The Eminence Governor sounds like a much smoother Vintage 30.
