So my curiosity with a 1x15 cab got the better of me and I ordered one from Humbucker Music. Overall, the cab sounds pretty good with guitar, but is meant for bass applications and is not the perfect fit. I find it a lot thicker and meaner than the 1x12 and could see it as a good alternative depending on what style of music one plays through it.
The cab is sounding better as it goes through more practices, but I still am considering changing the speaker to some sort of 15" 16 ohm speaker so I can run a 2x12 along with it.
My main complaint is that the speaker is an 8 ohm that makes it rough to run another cab with it with modern Oranges With my Matamp and OR120 this would not be a problem. The nice thing about the 1x15 with my Rockerverb 50 is that I get to crank the s--- out of it on both channels. My OR and Matamp distort enough to where I really appreciate the effecs loop on the Rocker.
Overall, if you are considering getting a 1x12 for smaller gigs, I would not hesitate to look into the 1x15. Even though it is for bass, you may surprised by how good it sounds for guitar.
Go to www.myspace.com/tommyjarvisband and the first two songs, V D and Jam 44 use the Orange 1x15.
