I ordered an Avatar 1x12 (with G12H Creamback) to play my Fryette Sig X thru hoping to be able to turn my Sig up a little more to get into the warm tube tone at 'lower' volumes. I ordered it with a closed back thinking that would be better when playing live at the smaller gigs we do so that I can turn my Sig up still, but still be able to mic the cab and run some guitar thru the PA and keep stage volume more manageable. Probably would just have my 1x12 aiming across the stage sideways as a guitar monitor. But I've noticed when playing on my own at home that the closed back cab sounds a lot more 'boxy', and was wondering if I should cut a hole in the back panel to open it up for a more open sound or not. Again, I'm wanting to be able to keep stage volume lower from my guitar rig, while still being able to crank my head up a little, and be able to run guitar thru the PA for even mix to the audience. Guess I'm kind of wondering also if the sound coming out of the cab at the cone (that would be picked up by the mic and run thru the PA) would be any different with closed back vs. open back cab?
