Mack 1x10 CB Guitar Speaker Cabinet
The Mack 1x10 CB is a closed back speaker cabinet from Mack Amps, designed specifically for electric guitar sounds.
It features an Eminence Redcoat Ramrod 10" ceramic magnet speaker and replaces the Mack 1x10 OB (open back) cabinet.
The 1X10 CB is a small, lightweight, closed back, guitar cabinet that can provide surprisingly big and sweet tone from such a small cabinet. It features a tuned port that helps to extend bass frequencies and makes it seem bigger than a typical 10" cabinet.
The new Eminence Ramrod takes the spot from the Eminence Rajin Cajun speaker that the older 1x10 OB uses. The Ramrod is known for reproducing classic British tone that works for clean, overdrive and distortion. This speaker also features good articulation at lower volumes.
The new 1x10 CB's cabinet is 50% deeper than the 1x10OB's and it features a tuned port. Both of these new design elements help to give the 1x10 CB a warmer and deeper voice compared to the OB. This speaker cabinet has 8ohm impedance and uses Baltic Birch, 11 ply for the front, and pine wood for the back and sides.
Don Mackrill, Mack Amps founder, said "The 1x10 OB was popular with Mack Amps Gem owners, but we kept tweaking and playing with designs that would provide even better 'at home' and low volume guitar tone, Most guitarists are surprised that so much bass, body and warmth can come from a 10" speaker cab."
The Mack 1x10 CB is currently selling for $349. You can get more information about this speaker cabinet from Mack Amps.

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
