    Anyone give these a try...what does the porting do, smooth out the sound, less thumping? They have an open back option as well now. Anyone tried one?

    It's my main cabinet on the road , has been for over a year now. I love it. Sounds huge. I have an AEminence Red, White and Blue in it, and use a VVT Lindy Fralin head with various tele's. Found the tone I've been looking for.

    They are great cabs for the money. I think I personally prefer a semi-open back (which he also offers), but I've been enjoying my ported 1x12s and 2x12s. Big sound for the size.

    How long did you end up waiting for yours?
