Open or Closed Back Cabnets

I am using a Legacy 2x12 and a 2x12 extension cab. I have the option of closed or open back enclosures. Which would you choose and why?

Re: Open or Closed Back Cabnets

the sound seems fuller to me in an open back, the bass doesn't over power too much either

Neither,partialy closed,you'll get the best of both worlds with both cabs partially closed.Your sound will be full,project well,and have plenty of low-end without being bass heavy.

I decided to go with the extension cab 1/2 open and the combo closed. It really brightened up the tone and made it more full.

Re: Open or Closed Back Cabnets

Clean = open
Dirty = closed.

My opinion only.
