I have a 1x12 combo and it has an open back. Would I get more pleasant results with a 1x12 open back extension cab or a 1x12 closed back extension cab?

"Pleasant" is very vague and subjective.

What amp is it, and what kind of music do you play?

The amp I'm using is the Peavey XXX in my sig. The music I play is metal, mostly Metallica and Pantera. Any responses?

Metal is more fit for closed back, IMO

Better bass response mainly.

But how would the closed back sound WITH the open back in the combo?

First, are you sure that you can plug an extension cab in, and have the internal speaker still run? Many amps automatically cut out the internal speaker when an external speaker's plugged in.

That being said, with the two together, the closed back cab should aid you in supplying a tighter bottom end while the open back continues to fill the room. The open back will be heard as louder everywhere but directly in front of your amp, where the closed back speaker will dominate (assuming the speakers are similar).

Well, I guess it should still be running. That's why it's called an extension cab. I plugged a cable into the extension cab out and the internal speaker did not cut off. Does that mean it will not cut off if I plug a cab in?

Thank you. The speakers I will get will be the same. I guess I'll get the closed back cab.
