The speaker makes a difference, mainly the size of the speaker (for amount of air being pushed etc.) and are you talking about the perceived volume, or the actual db rating?

not a whole lot, the main difference is clean headroom.

sorry for the ignorance but, what's clean headroom?

That would vary on how close you are standing, and on how big the room this test is taking place in then.

Also, if you wanna be even more precise, the height you're standing (if you are standing right next to the amp, but your head is a few feet above the speaker, you will get a much different sound to if you were raising the speaker into the air to be level with your head at the same distance.

Yes, the volume will be greatly impacted on the things biscuit described, it would also depend on where the amp is facing relative to yourself.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.
