    I was reading in another thread today about IIRC two differing cab designs for the tweed deluxe where one has the speaker sitting deeper within the cab and the observation that for this version the result was a fuller tone with more definition, etc.

    Is the same observation made for open back cabs when, all conditions being otherwise the same, the speaker is rear loaded rather than front loaded to the baffle since the speaker then sits deeper in the cab?

    I also wonder if there is a consensus of the perceived difference in the D-style oval opening on open back cabs as opposed to the traditional horizontal back panels -- I would think the roundness offer a broader resonance to respond to the music; where there are similar dimensions in several of the D-style cabs, is there the perception that it supports the lower mids, for example, or whether is just make a better balanced overall?
