The jsx be thin, i doubt that, i know when i played the xxx it was super hot and chuncky. Also the dampaning switch may have been set to tight which would also make it sound a bit thinner.
Dude, no way man.
I have a JSX, and for a while I played though a Marshall 1960B cab. No midrange, thin highs, and a woofy, muddy low end.
I traded it in for a Peavey XXX cab, it made a MASSIVE difference. Tight bass, defined chords, and a sweet midrange, and clean, fat highs.
The construction quality of the cab itself is top notch, its several notches above the shoddy Marshall cabinet.
If you like the Marshall cabinet, thats cool. No problems with that.
But when you start knockin one of the most solid cabs Ive ever come across, then we got problems.
This cab sounds GREAT with the JSX, Peavey amps always sound best with Peavey cabs, in my experience. They make a hell of a good cab, at least the XXX, JSX, 5150, and Classic 412's are.
