Hey, I wanted to know if isolation boxes really made any differences in the feel of air being push comparing with a line up/dummy load using cab impulses ( Recabinet 3 for example )

I'm looking for the Axetrak atv model or the randall isolation box or for a hot plate as atenuator/dummy load.

Would also like to know if its possible to acheive to a great sound at bedrooms/appartment levels micing a cab with a 50 watt single rectifier head + 2x12 mesa cabinet using a hot plate or if its still too loud/sacrificing too much tone.

This is for high gain tones mostly, from standard E tuning to Drop B.

Thanks for all info/experience/tip you can give me!
