One stereo guitar Cab with two amps

Hi,

This question goes to live-section.

I´m planning to double my guitar signal to stereo. Does anyone have experiences of using one stereo cabinet (2x12") with to amps? And especially experience with 2 mics on cabinet setting? I know that the best solution would be to amps and to cabs, but that is not possible right now so thats why this setup-idea.
My cab is ENGL 2x12" Pro Slanted E212VH

Thanks for your answers already!

Yes, it will work, however, you wont have the biggest stereo spread coming from a 2x12. However, if you have both speakers micd, and the sound guy knows what he is doing, you can make sure one speaker is panned right, and the other is panned left, there can be some bleed, but it wont sound bad, its just kind of left in the hands of the sound guy, which could work out to sound great.

If you want a bigger difference, you can have a 5-7ms delay to one of the speakers, but because both speakers are in the same cabinet, im not sure if there will be phase issues, but you might as well try it and see how it sounds.

EDIT: Double check your ohms.

Thanks. I have already checked my ohms and shouldn´t be any problems (but I will do a triblecheck still...). The idea is specifically have delay on the other speaker.
Got to test it.
Has anyone experience about this???
