    We really need more information.

    What are your bandmates using? What size venue are you playing? What amp models do you use? I'd say its likely that you are just competing for the same sonic space as your other bandmates. Like if you have another guitarist whos using a marshall with the mids dimmed, you'll never be heard.

    Amp on a riser blowing at your head?
    Or on the floor blowing at your ankles?
    You can't hear yourself or nobody can hear you?

    Most of the suggestions you already covered in previous posts, like lower gain and plenty of mids. Either the amp is broke or a single 12 only make loud noise in one spot.

    Thanks for the input, guys.

    I play a lot of different sized venues, from small neighborhood joints to casinos and theaters, outdoor shows, I'm all over the place. Musically, I do everything from Linda Ronstadt and Neil Diamond to Beatles and Green Day. Obviously, there's not a 'one size fits all' solution, but you guys have given me plenty of things to try, and I appreciate it.

    I'll report back if I get improvements. Or I'll flip the amp and buy something else if all else fails. :)

    Thank you all.

    Hey good luck, hope it works out....come back with more questions, lots of been there / done that's with this group on the Mustang channel. Flipping IMHO works best with Cube amps, being it don't matter what side they land on.

    Again, wish I had this amp years ago when playing cover songs in bands. Needed something really versatile when we did songs everywhere from Rick Darringer to Edgar Winter. o_O
