Combo - Comes in one convenient package. Whole package slightly lighter than the stack. Shorter tube lifespan.

Stack - Comes in 2 pieces. Individually the amp is lighter than the combo. Individually, the cab is lighter than the combo. Longer tube lifespan. You can mix and match cabs if you don't like the Blackstar cab.

the half stack has a closed back cab and the combo has a open back.

The stack would be a lot louder though, right?


Nope, just looks cooler.

In terms of actual volume, they sound the same. In terms of perceived volume, a closed back cab will "sound" louder and fuller because the bass frequencies will be directed back at you due to the closed back, instead of flying all over.

The volume increase will be perceived, its not an actual volume increase.

Ah. Another day, another thing learnt. I just figured 1 speaker wouldn't be as loud as multiple speakers...

I think I just decided against a stack, seeing as it's mostly just more hassle with setting up and stuff... it does look a lot cooler though and you can switch out cabs/head etc... hm.
