    49D20AD4-0BAD-440F-9AF1-FDE80F965D9C.jpeg Do you use the sound from the back of your combo amp? It seems commonplace to just shove the amp against a wall but there could be more to it.
    I keep my home amp stored in a cabinet.
    I can simply open the doors and hear it just fine , it’s a solid state amp so overheating is not such a problem.
    I have the amp on a slide and I’ve found that extending it creates an acoustic chamber behind the amp and reflects the sound forward adding depth and warmth

    Kitchen Cabinet sliders to the rescue

    Some time ago I saw plans for a plywood amp stand that channeled sound from the back under the amp and out the front.
    That got me thinking that there is something to be found in getting those amps away from the wall
