Was gifted a "rumble seat " , a bass iso box. It works great but the speaker response cuts off around 3 K, just too low for guitar.

I'm running it with a modeller into a small solid state amp so need a speaker that stays pretty clean. Any suggestions?

So what you really need is not so much a guitar speaker, but a fairly powerful 8" PA speaker?

Is that what they call a "silent Cabinet"?

That's a project on my project task list. Very Happy

I would recommend some Weber speakers but for modeling - solid state, I agree with Dave, get a high fidelity speaker-type.

Yep , some call it an iso box. I agree, a full range -"ish" speaker, but don't want to have to have a crossover.

might want to look at a coax if you are going Full Range Flat Response...

thanks Rawl. Found an Eminence on local CL, works great. The top closes really tight - So tight that I did a night of guitar over dubs while the Mrs was upstairs watching Gray's Anatomy , no complaints !!
