Hi guys, I have a fender bassbreaker 007 10 inch combo which I would like e to put in a new cabinet with a 12 inch speaker. Is this possible? Thanks

It is if you're a good woodworker, I suppose. You just need to set it up so that the amp chassis fits.

Why not simply swap out the 10" speaker for another 10" that sounds different?

Thanks, There's nothing wrong with the sound from the existing speaker, I just want the 12 inch for the fuller sound.

It is possible, but I'd rather use the speaker out to connect to a 12" cab...

Fuller sound.
"Your sound is in your hands as much as anything. It's the way you pick, and the way you hold the guitar, more than it is the amp or the guitar you use." -- Stevie Ray Vaughan

"Anybody can play. The note is only 20 percent. The attitude of the motherfucker who plays it is 80 percent." -- Miles Davis

Cone size doesn't equate to a "fuller sound." Nor does moving to a 15" cone size mean you're going to get more "lows" out of the thing. More than likely, the size of the box it's in has more to do with the sound than the size of the cone itself.

The extension cab sounds like a good idea if it's possible. Closing in the back might change the sound too. I used to set my combo inside another bigger cabinet and it increased the bass alot. Not possible for gigging but it was a nice setup. I guess the box has a lot to do with the sound, obviously.

i wouldn't try closing the back. it rarely helps things, and it can get hot in there if it takes away ventilation.

i would go for an extension cab.

I've got several cabinets that have tube power amps (and a place for the preamp) that actually have closed backs. *But* the speaker is essentially in its own box, with the tube power amp fully ventilated in a separate compartment above the speaker "box."

For example, the Atomic Reactor 112-18, 112-50 and 212-50 all have 18 or 50W tube power amps as well as a bay for desktop-style modelers sitting OVER a closed back, sometimes ported speaker enclosure.



In the above enclosure, the speaker enclosure (bottom of the cabinet) is closed-back, while the tube power amp (upper right, and you can see a fan incorporated into the amplifier) is in its own compartment. The empty space on the left is for a Pod bean-style modeler, such as the M-Audio, Behringer, Vox or Line 6 types. It should be possible to do something similar for almost any tube amp; but this will result in a larger cabinet, since most combo setups have the tubes and transformers sharing space with the back of the speaker in open-back setups.

Below is the front, showing the addition of a Vox modeler in the hot swappable bay:

The RM100 combos are closed back and not in separate enclosures. It has a small vent in the back and a fan. It doesn't overheat so it can be done.
