    Hi there

    so I have a fender Princeton 1x12
    And an Orange Rocker 1x10

    been enjoying using them both to fill up the room with sound! Not really doing a stereo - Left Right thing. Or wet/dry thing yet. Just micing the room with a ribbon.
    But I’d like to get a st & wet/dry thing going.

    my question is typically do people do this with the same size speakers?

    like two cabs with 12s? Or am I in the general vicinity with a 10 and a 12 Combo?

    ———-
    I guess I want an excuse to buy a vox ac15 1x12 :)

    using the Princeton as the pedal platform.

    But that’s another thread should I be convinced I need a matching 12” speaker. do I go for the Mesa or the vox ;) ?!

    fun stuff!

    left right thing is fun.
    Stereo effect is kinda like work.

    Left Right with a stereo tremolo is cool.
    Left Right with a stereo chorus is cool.

    Front and back with a wet/dry delay signal is very cool!

    Now, get the Left Right and Center going then
    add the delayed amp signal to the back of the room!
    Waaay cool!

    But you are going to have to buy more amps....
    I know, that's not what you wanted to hear! :twisted:;) sorry!

    IMO it doesn't matter too much, unless you're trying to match the two sides.

    Different speakers will introduce slightly different filtering of the sound, and this may actually help to differentiate the two sides and wind up sounding bigger....

    Actually the wet-dry thing is in your pedal board. Here's how mine is set up. I'm sure the stereo effect would be better if I just had more room to separate my amps. Also go check these guys out.

    I’m doing it with a 10 inch loaded 5F2 and a 12 inch loaded 6G2, and it sounds great to my ears. Nothing unbalanced at all.

    Doesn't matter what the speaker size between the amps is. The recording can't tell the difference, and those listening to that recording can't tell, either. The acid test is "how does it sound to you?" If you like it, you nailed it. If not, I am betting the answer lies within a certain amount of knob twisting before replacing amps or speakers.

    I’ve got one side going to a Peavey MH into a Peavey Classic 112 and the other going to a Vox MV-AC into a custom pallet box housing a Leslie Trem w/8” Jensen. Sounds divine!

    I run two amps just about always. Sometimes with a stereo pedal board, sometimes mono. Always into a Radial Shotgun (that allows up to 4 amps, which I've done) then off to the amps which change all the time. Pairing them up is half the fun choosing between a '57 Fender Custom Champ, VHT Special 6, SF non-vibro Champ, SF non-reverb Princeton, Fender Excelsior, Vox AC10, Blackheart Handsome Devil w/2x12", Fender Blues Deluxe and a killer Hammond Organ turned guitar amp with 12H Creamback cab. Speaker size or wattage doesn't matter until you get to REALLY LOUD. Even with a good deal of volume that little '57 Custom Champ keeps up pretty well against anything but the Blues Deluxe (which has an Eminence Wheelhouse 12). The AC10 and Excelsior are really nice, if loud together a 10" & 15". Different speakers add a lot to the mix as do differing amps. Had two Epi 5 watt combo's sometime back (GC special deal for $75.00/per combo) and they were meh to me when used together, I sold them to a harmonica player along with a cheap chorus pedal. He found tonal nirvana through that set up, it did sound pretty fine for harmonica. Probably sent him down the rabbit hole LOL.
