Great Cabinet

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Orange Amplifiers PPC Series PPC212OB 120W 2x12 Open Back Guitar Speaker Cab:

I am using this as an extra cabinet for the tiny terror 1x12 combo . Works really well . Much better than my fender hr deluxe with ext cab. I get equal volume from this cab and the tt combo speaker. I cant say the same for fenders with ext cabs. I know this has more to do with the amp than the cab but this pair works better than the fender hr deluxe and fender hr ext cab.The tolex covering had some air bubbles on first inspection but not bad enough to return.

Great Cab, QC not perfect

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Orange Amplifiers PPC Series PPC212OB 120W 2x12 Open Back Guitar Speaker Cab:

This open back version is made in Asia, not the UK like the heavy closed back Orange cabs. Mine had a cracked wooden "foot" and dented corner on delivery. Orange was very fast at sending out replacements for me. I reported Quality Control issues at their facility. This is a great price though for an Orange cab in a smaller size and with the open back sound. Great with my AD30HTC! Please Orange, double check your QC at the China factory!

Comments about Orange Amplifiers PPC Series PPC212OB 120W 2x12 Open Back Guitar Speaker Cab:

The write up for this calls it"compact"but this thing is HUGE!It's easily 3/4 the size of my Marshall 4x12 cabinet.It's a lot lighter,though.Very rugged construction.The handles on the sides are metal,not plastic like other manufacturers use.It's a semi-open back cabinet,so has a different sound than the closed back version.Speakers sound good-a bit flabby with a lot of distortion from my amp,but they may need to be broken in more.They have a very warm&mellow tone with a clean guitar sound.Like the sounds from the 50's my parents rave about that you just can't get anymore from today's equip.A bit expensive,but for the build quality I can't complain.Wish it had come with instructions on what the 2 jacks in the back are for,or at least labeled them.Both are 16 ohm inputs.You can plug into one and use the other to daisy chain them together.Very loud with my Dark Terror head.Can easily keep up with a drummer.

Great sounding versatile compact 2x12

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers PPC Series PPC212OB 120W 2x12 Open Back Guitar Speaker Cab:

      This is a great uniquely designed 2x12. The speakers are placed diagonal on the baffle board, which makes for great sound dispersion. The Orange closed back 2x12 sounds like it has a blanket over it, in comparison. Consider that this open back version has one of the speakers like a foot off the floor, and you can see why it throws sound around a lot better.

      This is a small 2x12, and due to the compact size and open back, the low end response can't compete with an oversized closed back 2x12. However, I haven't found the low end to be lacking with this cabinet. It's nice and clear without being beamy, and the sound has plenty of heft to it.

      I have a number of 2x12 cabinets with different speakers in them, and I recently just bought a 2nd PPC212OB because I liked the sound of my 1st one so much. My other cabinets just don't have the sound throw that this one does, and they don't sound as lively. I like this thing a lot.

      PROS:
      -Nice sound dispersion, very wide area of throw
      -Nice clarity without any harsh beamy frequencies
      -Very resonant and open sounding
      -V30 speakers have a great present midrange that sits right in where a guitar should in a live setting.
      -It's quite light for a 2x12 cabinet, even with the (somewhat heavy V30s)
      -Unique diagonal speaker placement
      -Same dimensions as the Orange 2x12 combo amps, so it's easy to find a slip cover, and things look nice on stage.

      CONS:
      -Limited internal volume leads to sacrificing some low end compared to larger cabinets and/or closed back designed.
      -The wood is not finger jointed, just butt joints with staples.
      -Short width means it could look a little silly with a large amp head on top of it (Yes, I'm reaching on cons here)

      She's a little tight right out of her box. But I'm sure that she'll loosen up if I keep up at it in a while

      Got this as an open box, really? This thing is like brand new, can't find a scratch on it! And it wasn't even the highest category of open box condition!
      Gotta give kudos for musician's friend for a very conservative rating that's just a bonus to buyers. And the bonus on top of that was MF's Backstage Pass benefit that allowed free shipping!

              This is a great cab! I'm running a (orange dual terror) through it and it's killer. It looks great and the sound it even better. The low end and mid rang response rly stands out with this cab. The construction of the cab on the other hand is a little spoty though. There is a gap in the wood on the bottom front corner! But this cab is made in Oranges Asia factory, and Musicians friend rushd me out a new cab right away and even payd for shipping. So all in all I'm very pleased with the cab.
