Is it better - in a amp to have 2 speakers over 1 speaker? What difference does it make?

Time on earth is like butterscotch; you really want more, even though it will probably just make you ill.

More than anything, it's an insurance that your amp will last longer: if one speaker goes you still have one to play through.

Amp doesnt break up until higher volumes, thats the benefit. It also adds clarity and depth.

An amp breaking up earlier doesn't have anything to do with less speakers. It does add a bit of low-end and clarity.

It creates a larger area of sound waves with some cancellation in between the two. Instead of one (12 inch for eg.) speaker moving air (accoustic energy) there are no two 12 inches speakers operating together. This would widen your projected sound somewhat and does sound different than a signle speaker config. Heavier though, I used to own 2x12 combos (Fender Twin, Traynor) and they were pigs to lug around.
Moving on.....

yah i like how 212 sounds over a 412.

412 just sound to loose sounding to me.

I think a 212 is a happy medium between playing at low volumes and playing a high volumes.

i'd rather have a 1x12, personally, as 2x12s are really heavy, and it's more expensive to swap speakers if you don't like the stock ones. if i needed more speakers, i'd probably get an extension cab, though that might work out more expensive than the 2x12 combo (but should be easier to carry).

up to you, really. depends on the situation, which amp it is, etc. etc.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

i like the sound of 2 speakers if your just sitting around jamming. but in real life, one speaker is better than any number. why, you ask? because if your playing live or recording, your going to mic up one single speaker (most of the time, anyway.) so that makes the rest of the speakers kind of trivial, doesnt it?

From a financial perspective, one good speaker is better than two crappy ones.
Please don't assume I care enough about your guitar rig, your general thoughts on life, the funny things people have said about you, or anything else not related to the topic at hand to have the view signatures option turned on. I don't.

i find you get less feedback.
i was playing through 6x12's earlier today,
and it sounded alot bassier and clear, alot
less harsh as opposed to 2x12.,
so i'd assume the same goes for 2x12 > 1x12.

I like the spread sound you get. Also the famous 4x12 "more bass response" is almost indistinguishable with a 2x12 in my experience, so you're getting the positives of a 4x12 at half the weight.

And it takes up half the space in your drummers van too. :P
