    I put a 12" in my Pro Jr a while back and loved it. Recently the speaker started making
    a bad noise:( So I tried out different 12's that I had on hand.

    Then I thought I'd plug my 2x10 into the 12" extension cab just to see what it would
    sound like~liked it way better! Don't really want to build a 2x12 cab or lug one around,
    so I'm going change the 2x10 to a 1x12...

    End of an era~guess no more 10's for me.

    Like they say, "To each his own." I prefer four tens...but that's just me.

    I've just started getting into 10s myself, and am really liking them so far.

    Don't own any 10's and haven't for a long while, but that Super Reverb I owned in my younger days was most glorious.

    Don't give up on 10s until you try 4 of them.
    It's NOTHING like 1 or 2.

    12" and alnico for me. Unless it is 4X10 with Jensen alnicos, a la '59 Bassman.

    Which 10's. Which 12's?

    I don't understand how anyone can make a blanket statement about speakers based on size alone. It's not a very relevant factor except when comparing speakers with otherwise (relatively) identical specs.
