Here's my dilemma... I was in the market for a new amp but news of my 1st child on the way has cut into fun money (way more excited about a kid than new gear tho!!). Innate a 60w fender supersonic...the older one with the darker grill cloth. I love the sound but with only 1 speaker I don't feel like im filling the room when we play live. Not a volume issue as much as a projection issue. I'm thinking about adding a 2x12 cab to make a small stack with my combo. We have a show coming up at the biggest venue we've ever played and I wrong want to get lost in the mix. Do u guys think this help project the sound?? If so, I'm not looking to spend big bucks...I've heard good things about jet city cabs...eminence speakers, decent construction, very reasonably priced...any experience with this brand out there?? Lastly, I don't fully understand ohms and I can't remember what the output rating is for the supersonics speaker output, anyone know if this cab will match my supersonic?? Thanks for any help that will come my way!!

ernieBguitar,

 Fender lists on their website that it has one extension speaker jack on the back. 4 or 8 ohm, switchable.  I don't personally have any experience with the Jet City cabs but they seem nice. Welcome to the forum and good luck and Congrats!

UPDATE!!!I found a screaming deal at a local music store I forgot about! They had a supersonic 2x12 cab which goes for $699 everywhere online, and he sold it to me for $300 (first generation)!!! My new rig...a lovely little 3x12 stack!!

Awesome! Hope it gives you the fullness and projection you're looking for. :)

sounds great man!  Let us know if that solves the dilema of being able to project at the gig.
