I have a Ibanez 10G amp and it say it has an open back design for low response or something. What does it mean by open back or low response?

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.


Sums up whisky perfectly

Leaving an open gap in the back of a speaker enclosure is supposed to allow a fuller sound to be released. A lot of combos do this. Most cabinets are close backed to project better to the front.

Google, seriously.

But, open back is where the cabinet or behind you combo is opened up, whereas closed back it is completely closed.
Wait.

You get alot of sound cancellation w open back cabs. And tend to not get the greatest bass response. But w combos its the norm, unless its a bass amp.

The open back does not lend itself well to distortion. Its why you may see blues or clean players use smaller miked combos. But never see a serious heavy metal player use an open back combo.
