    I'm learning more and more about the role of the cabinet in overall tone shaping, and coming to grips that I'm going to need to invest in a solid cab if I want bass response. Thinking about a ported 1x12, but that's a whole 'nother thread. My real concern now that I'm learning about the role of the cab in conjunction with the speaker is that I come from a world where you mic a little off the cone and send that one signal you the sound guy because that's what you're "supposed" to do. But I don't want to sound money to get a great sounding cab and still get nothing but my highs in the PA. Is my logic off, or is there a real problem I'm sending that someone has an answer to?

    Good explanation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQX71Ycrg28

    I've always tuck with the edge or drop it down with a cable.

    I have a Mesa Thiele but never have recorded that one.

    A 4X12 I have used a far away mic to get the bass.
