Looking for an excellent 1x12 cab that sounds huge, packs a punch, and helps to really cut through in a live mix.

I've had a couple cabs in the past that made my amp sound "distant", for lack of a better word. So I want to retain the 3D cutting sound from both of my amps. I'll be using this cab with both a Bad Cat Cub II, and a Gabriel V18 Voxer; both kinda in the Voxy vein.

For reference, I love my StageCraft Blues Jack Studio 1x12, so I'm leaning towards getting another from them, but I also wanna see what's out there.

Go! :)

I'm partial to the Suhr ported 112. Just replaced the wgs vet 30 with a Celestion V30. IMO, it does everything the OP asks.

What about the Jackson Ampworks 1x12"? It might be stretching the budget, but the dual-ported design is genius.

Own 3 different 1x12 cabs by Swanson, Jenkins and Forte ... the Forte has the "biggest" sonic footprint.

I like the Mesa Boogie widebody 1X12 cab, C90 speaker. I went with the one with the slightly open back and like it. Plenty of low end and very balanced.

I had the Elite model built by Stagecraft for an EVM12L. I like it better than my Mesa Thiele.

This is my favorite cab to date. I have been through a lot of 1x12" cabs over the years but this on does it for me. It sounds huge!!

I've gotta say, it's hard to beat the 1x12 Forte...I've got an ASW KTS-70 in mine and it's just an incredible speaker and cab. I use it with a Goodsell Custom 17 head and with a Matchless HC30, and it works well with both the (relatively) low powered Goodsell and the HC30. Kind of pricey,,,but IMO well worth it.

Got an Avatar cube 1x10 that's really nice - I use it with my super low watt setup in my rehearsal space (cab is mic'd, good monitor/PA support) and it's full, nice bass and it cuts.
