Who's using Multiple 1x cabinets, instead of 2 x 12, 4 x 12 ect ? 8 x 1 x12 ? 4 x 1 x 15 ? 4 x 1 x 10 ? Combine 15s, 12s, 10s ?

Im going to slowly put many of my speakers in 1x cabinets, and put Dual Neutrik NL2 Connectors to Daisy Chain them.

Ive already done 2 Hemp Coned JBL E120s and 2 JBL E130s with HCs and they sound huge. A 15 JBL E130s is = to a 4 x 12 of most speakers. 105db efficiency, and 300 watts.

I had the cabinets made according to JBL Pro Enclosure Guide Spec for E120s, with Porting, but also had the cabinets made with 3 piece backs, so I can use them Sealed, 1/3 Semi Open, 2/3 Semi Open Backs, Ported, and with 2 or more you can use different combinations.

Right now im using 2 x 15 Altec 418H, 4 x 12 x 1972 Celestion G12Hs, 2 x 1 x 12 HCd JBL E120s, and a 38 Watt Metro GMP45, and a 100 watt 69 Dual Showman Rvb, with Blackface mod, and ODS mod.

My 1 dilemma is that I have an original untouched wiring harness that is attached to 4 x 12, 1972 Pulsonic Cone Celestion G12H, 75hz x 25 Watt. And I hesitate to cut up the harness. But Im also tired of carrying around heavy cabinets, even though more trips, I can easily carry Multiple 1x's, and IMHO, 2 x 1 x 12, sounds better than 2 x 12.

My goal is to have 1 x 15 JBL Hemp Coned E130 x 4 x 1 x 12 Celestion G12H Pulsonic cones, 2 x 12 Hemp Coned JBL E120, 2 x 1 x 12 Celestion Cream, and 4 x 1 x 10 Fane AXA Alnico 10s.

I already have the all of speakers.

I actually went back to 2X cabs from 1X cabs. For MANY years, I gigged a Rivera amp - an M100 1x12 combo, or heads of various power - with Rivera 1x12 cabinets. If I used the combo, I could make a cool combo stack - and obviously I had more options if I used a head. It was cool, regardless of stage size.

Have fun with it!!

I tried this mini wall of Orange and I was very happy :naughty::naughty:





It actually sounded fantastic and had a big sound to it
