Bogner 1x12 or 2x12 .. open or closed back?

Hi, I'm looking to get a Bogner cab, mainly for pop and rock guitar sounds (in the studio)...I'm not sure whether to go for the 1x12 or 2x12...and also whether to go for open or closed back. Like I said I mainly want it for pop and rock...so great cleans would be a plus...also nice distortions...not looking for any metal sounds though...would be using it with a Shiva head...thanks.

I think Bogner may still offer a combo back cab that allows you to run either
configuration.

I'd go for a 2X12 if possible to give you more flexibility in mixing and matching drivers.

I always seem to be partial to closed backs but that's just my taste. If you're just recording with it close mic, a 1x12 would probably do fine but if you think you might like the option of room micing it then I'd go with a 2x12. Now if you're gonna gig with it then I'd go with the 2x12. But I always like things to sound bigger, my 2 cents.

OS 2x12. There is magic in that cabinet. You'll need something different than v30s or 75s in it though to get the best for the types of sound you are after.

That really is a great choice for flexibility.

Open or closed running Greenies, Blues , Purples, CTS EV's JBL's what ever.
