I'm looking at putting together a mini rig of doom for taking to gigs, but I have a mental block when it comes to 1x12 speaker cabs. When I played the most from 1990 to 2002 12" speakers were for guitars and combo amps, "real" bass players used 10" and 15". When I started to get back into playing I saw all these 112 and 212 cabs and just can't seem to wrap my head around. In my personal time warp I can't seem to stop thinking that a stack of 12" speaker cabs would sound really clanky or have too much bark. But they are so small and so convenient for getting around. Can they possibly have the same low end heft of a 15" speaker? Convince me that I can get a big fat tone out of a pair of 112s.
