  • If you ever wanted to see inside Jet City's 1x12...

    Bought a new speaker for this cab so I thought I'd take a few shots while it was opened up.




    Looks solid to me.

    Here's the back panel both sides. It's plywood rather than chip board or MDF.




    The driver is held in place by four machine screws that screw into threaded inserts in the baffle. I've had four different speakers in this cab and they still tighten down nicely.

    Sorry for the bad focus here, it's my new camera that I'm still getting used to. The baffle is also plywood, I don't know if you can see the plys in the cutout with this pic but they're there.



    Another bad focus one, the replacement speaker. It's a WGS Retro 30.



    And here it is back in my humble little recording rig.



    Just thought some folks might want to see the inside of one of these before buying. It looks like it's all ply construction and it seems very nicely made to me. The stock speaker, though I'm replacing it, is not bad by any stretch. Very nice little lightweight 1x12 for $130.
    Stupednous is the disease. And I'm the solution.

      That looks pretty awesomely built man!

      They still don't have a vertical 2x12 do they? Sitting it on its side doesn't have the panache it should....

          Although I shouldn't be too surprised by the quality at this price point after getting my WhiteBox cab.

                i've just put one of those JCA Eminence drivers into my VC50, definitely helps tame the high a lot. Quite a dark sounding speaker and very smooth.

                  IIRC those will be in the American Custom line. The horizontal cab is $699!

                      You sure that isn't MSRP? I heard 499 retail.

                        Still, that's over $250 more than the horizontal cabs. I want another vert 2x12...but...I don't know if I want one that badly.

                          It's cause of the V30s. Doug said that he might consider releasing them with the JCA house speakers for a lot less. I'm hoping he does.

                            Take a look: http://www.jetcityamplificationstore.com/product_info.php?products_id=2

                            Pretty sure they will only be available direct.

                              Look the link above. Doesn't matter which speakers you choose. Price doesn't change. I REALLY hope Doug changes this.
