The Z-28 1x10 gold has been my go to amp for the longest time, so long that I can’t even remember playing through a 12 inch speaker. Today was the first time in maybe 7-8 years that I’ve played through a 12.
I put an Eminence cannabis Rex in the convertible 1x12 cab. I played it by itself, and then paired with the gold. I could only play clean at lower volumes, but man, what a difference a 12 inch speaker makes! The gold and the CR play well together and actually make a great pair. Can’t wait to let these speakers move some air in the coming weeks/months. The CR sounds fantastic through the Z-28! Man every time I get GAS for another amp, I plug the z-28 in and just wonder why. So is the life I guess!
I’m using my Brake Lite SA to split the signal in parallel to both speakers that are 8 ohms. I have it connected to the 4ohm input. Ami doing it right??

The Cannabis Rex should be very similar to my 12'' WGS G12C/S. I have more clean headroom using that cab compared to my 10'' Gold, and I generally prefer the 12'' G12C/S for cleans, while the Gold is used mostly for edge of breakup base tone using an Air Brake attenuator.

I like the Z-28 with the C-Rex also but it sounds best with my Gold + C-Rex 2x12 cab. Pretty much what you have with your mini stack. The Gold + RW&B is also a great combo with the Z-28. I tried, but didn't really bond with the Z-28 with just the 1x12 Gold for some reason. The Gold has never really sounded its best as a stand alone speaker for me except with my long departed Stangray head. Congratulations on finding a speaker combo you like.

Looks great! Glad to hear you like the extension cab. The 12 adds that girth that the ten lacks. Can't wait to hear your experiences with the rig in band situations. I've contemplated using my 2/10 '28 w a band I'm sitting in with tonight but the smaller 1/10 CG rig has me rethinking it. Congrats on the new cab and matching red stack.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
