It seems alot of guys really like those 2-10 setups. Thats cool. Maybe some day I'll revisit 10's.
When I bought my first Z, a MAZ, I got the 4-10 cab for it. It was overkill for my volume needs, and heavy. I returned it for a 1-12 blue cab. I have a prety good collection of 12" speakers, so have continued along with 12" cabs.
But I remember that 4-10 bieng real "spanky" for lack of better words. Never did try a 2-10. Bet it sounds sweet.....

The G12H that Doc ships with it works well for a lot of the smaller rooms. Has some of the characteristics of a GreenBack in my opinion (the warmth/woodiness) but holds together the bottom better. Of course I have had the opportunity to run it with the 1x12 and 2x10 z cabinet and that was killer, would love to try it with a 4x10.
I hear what your saying about the G12H/Greenback comparison JD. I heard that too, mostly in the midrange. I liked that speaker just fine actually. But I have had good luck with the Gold in other Z's. So figured.... why not. Turns out I like it alot in the JAZ too.
One thing I remember most after putting the Gold in was it wasnt quite as bright, not a bad thing for me. Alot of that could be the Gold is broken in, and the G12H is was new.
Either was I likey. Me likey alot ;D
Since you have both the 2-10 cab, and 1-12 combo..... have you ever just ran the amp into the 2-10? What would you say the difference is between the two enclosures?
I have a 1x12 loaded with a red tone tubby. It sounded really nice. It definitely gave a darker tone but still had plenty of treble. I really liked it with my tele as it allowed me to use the bridge pickup without getting too trebly.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.
