Got a nice pair of Jet-City OEM 12" Eminence. Can't wait to build a cab for them.

They should compliment my Handsome Devil pretty well. It now runs on the stock BH112 cab, which is a bit on the small size for that great head. I will sell that cab, since I already have two homemade 1X12" cabs for my Super Champ XD and X2.

I had 1 in a Jet City 1x12 cab. Great sounding cab, decent enough speaker but the cab was much better sounding for hard rock with either/both Vintage 30 and a CL80 that is in it now.

I've got a pair of Soldano-voiced Legends. Wonder if they're the same thing?

I replaced a pair of V30's in my Mesa Roadster with them and liked the change. I'm not a V30 fan either, mind you. Sold the Roady, now I'm using one of those Legends and C90 in a 212 cabinet, which I think also sound pretty good.

BGood, I'm not seeing any pics. (Could be me, hey, I'm not THAT smart)

Congrats on a great looking cab!!



Reminds me of...

"For the want of a shoe the horse was lost,
For the want of a horse the rider was lost,
For the want of a rider the battle was lost,
For the want of a battle the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of a horseshoe-nail."

Have you tried the X2 head through it yet? Just curious as I also own one of these heads.

OK ... since I sold my Handsome Devil, I bought a Ibanez TSA15 head and coupled it with this Jet City 2X12 cab. Good but ... too airy or something.

I then looked at what comes stock in the TSA15 cab and/or combo and surprise, it's a cheap Eminence Seventy/80 ! Who would have thought ? THE speaker that gets the worst reviews. It so happens that I have two 1X12 cabs with exactly those in there. I had built them for my Super Champs. So now I am running both cabs with the TSA15H and it sounds very rich and full. Love it.

So what happens with the 2X12 cab with the Jet City Eminence ? It got hooked to the SC XD. Man, it like doubled the power of that little amp and it doesn't color the amp's native tone too much. Good match here too.

I notice in the pics you have it set up vertically. You should lay it down and try it horizontally, just for fun. They sound a little different that way (closer to a 412, IMO) but you have to get farther away to hear it well, as it's blasting past your knees for the first 10 feet or so.
