    I play mainly jazz orientated gigs. I want to buy a small extension speaker cab. with the view to 'fatten' the sound. Would you go for a GK or Acoustic Image extension cab? or some other quality make? What have you tried? Did you like the results? Advice much appreciated.

    I play a regular monthly gig in a room where my AI cab sounded kind of thin, based on recordings, so I added a EA M-Line Wizzy 12. I drive both the AI and EA with an AI head that I place near me so I can tweak my volume if need be. I don't usually use the EA cab but for some room it *fattens* up the sound just as you asked about.
  3. What amp will drive this cabinet? AI cabs are lower sensitivity than most other cabs, so balance can be a problem.
