    I have an empty closed-back 1x12 cab lying around and would like to get a great speaker to put in it. I'd like something in the vein of Marshall crunch, probably ceramic magnet. Any suggestions?

    Iv been happy with my vintage 30 in my 1x12 closd back but they are a bit of a love/hate speaker. What amp are you going to be using with it as wattage becomes a major issue in a 1x12

    A variety but the two main ones will be an Emery Sound Microbaby and a boutique Champ head.

    My favorite is a Sholtz Sugarcone. It is in a Red Iron Amp cabinet built by Paul Sanchez and I have yet to hear any other 1X12 sound as good.IMHO
