    Anyone tried the Port City Wave cabs with a Dumble style amp? I'm thinking two G12-65. (Standard - not the Oversized cab)

    Is it possible, with good results, to use one as two 1x12" and pair each side to a different amp or will the ported design "fall apart"?

    I use a 1x12 os with my ceriatone and my fuchs. Holds bottoms well, and retains the fattness associated with these amps.I've got an old 12-65 in it right now, and it holds great!

    I use a standard 2x12 with NOS G12-65's and this is the perfect compliment to my Fuchs TDS100.

    I have an OS 2x12 loaded with two Austin Speaker Works 70 hz speakers. I have a Carol-Ann Tucana and a Carol-Ann OD2 50 watter. I think it sounds great. The bass is very big, smooth mids and a nice bite on the top, but not harsh in any sense.

    In a small studio the bass seems too strong and I put it on a Gramma which really cleans it up. Live it sounds great and most of the time I crave more bottom, which this cab gives.

    The cab also sounds great with a Red Iron T-Rex and a 65Amps Royal Albert. It seems to compliment pretty much any amp. I also have a 1x12 OS w/ASW and on with an EV. A regular one might be good if you have too much bottom end on your amp.
