    No spam here, just a question to those that have sold speaker cabs. I have a 1x12 - should I take the speaker out and sell the cab and speaker separately? I believe this cab is desirable w/o a speaker as many are sold that way.

    I'm thinking of the buyer's perspective - it seems many players want to swap out speakers, or use their own favorite. From my perspective, would I make a little more money separating them, or is it a wash?

    If you were buying a used cab, do you look for an "unloaded" or "loaded" one?

    Thanks.

    as a buyer, i like having the option. loaded or unloaded.
    priced accordingly of course.

    as a seller, it depends on whether or not i like the speaker.

    If you don't need the speaker, why not give the buyer the option? Something like "$300 empty, $385 loaded w/ a G12H30".

    I've always 'either with or without' if I didn't mind selling or keeping the speaker seperate.

    I think age has something to do with it. I just sold an 07 Lonestar 2X12 cab yesterday and would not have sold it without the speakers. Had it been a 7 year old cabinet, that might have been a different matter. If everything is relatively new, I would try to sell it with the speakers. I certainly would try that first. You can always say you would like to try it with the speakers for a week and if you don't sell it, you'll get back to them.
