By the way, I don't really like the directionality of closed back cabs but love the punchiness. Do 10s seem to do better for sound dispersion? I can live with some beamy-ness but the closed back 1x15 in my traynor really suffers from this so I just run it open back for the most part
vertically oriented 2x cabs do a better job of wide dispersion than do horizontal 2x cabs or 4x cabs. 4X cabs focus sound in a conical shape that focuses about 20-30 feet directly on a line in front of the cab. Horizontal 2xs do not do not disperse to the side the way a vertical array does. P.A. Systems use line array speakers because of this Aspect of sonic dispersion patterns.
I have an intermediate sized BF Bassman cab,,,the first of the vertically oriented cabs that was built only in the first three months of 1967. When the SF cosmetics were introduced in April, 1967; the vertical cab was enlarged by an inch or two. I have had this cab for a few years. After not having any success trying to sell it, I sold the OEM Jensen C12Ns to a fellow TDPRI member. IF…..big if, I know….you were interested in this cab, I would let it go for the shipping and a reasonable cost to prepare it for that shipping. That SF Bassman head would bolt right down on this cab. It does not have the drip edge aluminum trim.
