I recently bought a s/h 4x10 cab loaded with alnico Jensen P10R's, made by Dennis Cornell. It is open backed and I got it for larger venues where I wanted my Z-28 to move a bit more air. It was a disappointment right from the start, although quite loud, very pretty sounding at the top end it was way too thin and not a lot of air was moved. I had a Marshall 4x10 years ago and it sounded great, I never even looked inside it though.
It was a bit of a spur of the moment buy (ebay of course) and I should have done my homework on the P10R's, and I am thinking of fitting different speakers. Or I could sell and move on. Any suggestions?

Nobody ever said a tweed Bassman sounds bad with 4 Jensen P10Rs. Your Marshall cab was closed back. That will always have more bass. If your back is removable you could try making a plywood closed back.
