vertical array guitar cab setup?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by i_got_a_mohawk, Aug 8, 2005.

  1. I was bored and not studying the other day, i was looking through last years Carlsbro catalogue (I know the distributer and am thinking about some PA speakers cus i have money to waste and like making noise)

    Anyway, i saw the "Nu Tone" guitar amp stack they had, it had a 1x15" cab and a 2x12" cab (that was designed so it sits vertically), they also have a standard 4x12", anyways

    I just thought it was strange to see :

    A) a guitar setup using a 15" speaker
    B) something different from the standard 4x12"

    this is all, dont know if i should have bothered posting this or not, but, meh :p


    [edit] added a pic of it if anyones interested [/edit]
  2. why is that 2x12 so big? looks like a pain to haul around.

    15's in a guitar rig have been offered before and even Randall offers a couple of cabs currently with 15's. The RS125XL and RS125CX both have a 15 and two 12's.
  4. I had an old blues guitar player friend who used 2 1x15 cabs. One cab for rehearsals and 2 cabs for gigs. They had open backs and didn't distort that much, but he got a little bit of overdrive from the amp.. I believe he used an old Peavey all tube head,... probably 25 - 50 watts. Sounded great.
  5. fair enough, shut me up! its just something you dont see every day
