Are you too close to your amp when you play? IF you're too close and it's too loud your guitar will feedback regardless of if you use a noise gate/suppressor or not.

Also it's kind of odd to...

You can buy road king 3/4 back 4x12's with shadow 90's and v30's. I'm pretty sure the v30 side is closed and the shadow 90's or whatever are half open.

You don't need a sonic maximizer and an EQ. They're basically the same thing.
