Epiphone 1x12 Cabinet


Recommended Posts

They're glued in pretty good, huh! They probably assemble them while the glue on the tolex is still wet. Try running something thin like a putty knife down the seams to break it loose if you can. And pull harder! =D> Okay, pull harder on one end to kinda peel the panel out. You'll hear the glue breaking, but hopefully not the panel. I broke the upper end "ears" loose on my VStandard's back panel. Didn't use the putty knife. =D>

I thought that if I kept pulling the OSB that is made of would snap.

This kind of sucks...if I use a putty knife, wont that tear the Tolex?

I thought that the these Cabinets were made of Plywood?

Thanks.

Oh' date=' one more thing, I noticed that the speakers leads are soldered on the Epi Vs using a clip, should I get some clips or should I just go ahead and solder the new speaker on? Is one way better than the other?

Thanks.[/quote']

Solder = much better

Especially for tube amps -- a loose speaker connect will probably cost you an OT. Clip connectors like to rattle themselves loose when you're rockin' so....

 

What's your speaker swap choice? Let us know your tone results, eh? VJr. responds well and quite differently to different watt/type speakers. It's like a subtle tone mod.

I was going to try out the Celestion V30 until I hooked up the cabinet (by itself) to the amp that has the V30 to the Epi Head...I think that the Lady Luck sounds about the same?

 

 

get it hot, get the wire on, take soldering iron off

 

Thanks for your input. I'll keep it mind if I go ahead and exchange.
