        It sounded better as a semi-closed cab/

              Comments about Jet City Amplification JCA12S 1x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

              Jet City Amps used to offer a 1x12 cab with a removable slab, but I ordered this closed cab version. The single cab doesn't fully resonate even replacing the stock Eminence with a WGS Retro 30. So I decided to cut a 4-inch slab from the back cover to make it a semi-closed cab. Huge tonal difference. Now I get a fuller low-end response since the bass frequency can escape from the slab. It made this inexpensive cabinet sound a LOT better.

              For anyone who wants to upgrade the stock speaker but having a hard time removing the back cover, try this trick:

              1. Unscrew the back cover.

              2. Remove the jack plate

              3. Use a 1/3 wide flat head screw driver. Insert your arm into the hole where the jack plate was.

              4. Push the flat head screw driver in between the back cover and the side of the cab.

              5. Wiggle the screw driver up and down or torque it clockwise/counterclockwise to loosen the "seal".

              6. Repeat the process until the back cover starts moving by itself.

                Comments about Jet City Amplification JCA12S 1x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet:

                I purchased this cab for my JC20H and have been fairly pleased with the performance. Honestly, you get what you pay for. This cab is a great for the price and is perfect if you're looking to build your first full stack/half-stack. As other reviews have said, you should eventually switch out the stock speaker for a better replacement. In my opinion, the stock speaker that this cab comes with doesn't do your tone any favors. As others have said, it sounds a bit "toy-like". Overall, this cab is a great deal and works as a great starting point for someone looking to experiment with full-stacks/half-stacks.

                        If your looking for a well built cab for a 1x12 speaker fine... If you think the stock speaker works for you fine... but it doesnt work for me.. you need to swap out that psuedo-eminence speaker that comes stock and get somthing else in there that covers your particular tone... the thing that masquerades as an eminence speaker sound thin, tinny .. toylike... the Cab however is an outstanding build...

                              My first generation Marshall Class 5 sounds great with upgraded NOS tubes, but I finally had enough of the intermittent rattling. For all the pain of opening it yet again only have the rattle come back a while later (I've tried everything, including Marshall's recommended fixes), I decided to look into an external cabinet so I could keep my Class 5's tone. This Jet City 1x12 can't be beat for the price. It's given my Class 5 a new lease on life for home use and recording, and it also sounds great with my Vox AC4TV.

                              Over all I'm stoked to own a Jet City product and I plan on purchasing more of their items. I do recommend it, and if you are worried about it not being loud enough for a drummer, buy another one.. Haha. That will have PLENTY of sound for you.
                              Not to many features.. Wish it came in the black or white front baffle but I plan on buying one seperate for it. Over all it's a great speaker. And I plan on purchasing the JCA12S+ cabinet to go with it.
                              Solid build, crisp speaker, and gets quite loud. I use the Behringer VT100FXH head with it(a perfect fit), It's a great combo and the cabinet handles the full 70 watts it promises.
                              Pretty decent price.. I searched around alot before purchasing this JCA12S cabinet, one of the bigger sized 1X12's I found. Which was needed for the head I use on it.

                              Yea, this baby is sweet!
                              Outstanding 1 x 12 speaker! The cabinet is bigger than the newer scaled down Jet 1 x12 with the grill front. These have cloth fronts and closed back (no options to open) which is fine by me. I normally prefer open backs, but this speaker cab is the bomb! I do prefer Eminence speakers which this cab has. I drive it in my studio with a 100 watt head - Marshall or Behinger and at 16 ohms, you'll get about 60 watts of power - plenty loud for recording. Great thick sustain, crunch, and tones.
                              Very well built and nice bigger size - bigger than the Epiphone 1 x 12 which I also own and like.
                              It's a good deal for a quality 1 x 12 cab with Eminence speak.

                              I normally don't write reviews but wow. I recently bought this with the JCA20H. I loved the way the stack sounded. But then i decided to plug in my Epiphone Valve Jr combo. I didn't think it would be too much of a difference cause both the Valve Jr speaker and this one are Eminence drivers. But the sound was spectacular. Like a blanket was lifted off of the amp. This cab is a steal at this price too. I probably will buy another to have a full stack, and will be able to use with my Valve Jr.

                              I own a JCA2112RC combo amp and got this extra cabinet to make a stack. Looks great, rights right on top. I took the back off to change out the fabric and baffle. It did take some prying to get it off, but once inside I realized the quality is good, solid.
