    I have a Port City OS 2x12 Wave cab I am looking to load up for use with my DSL40CR that I plan on converting to a head with a Stagecraft amp head box. I play clean to dirty blues to '80s level of distortion, think Ratt, Ozzy ( Crazy train, etc), and Satriani type instrumental rock. Usually stay on the 20 watt setting around 80-100db per my iphone's free db meter app set about 4 feet away at speaker level.
    I have a Gold waiting for a job to do. I have tried 2 V30's and while they did have the mid-spike - which I didn't mind - I was left wanting more clarity in the low mids and low end. The Gold I think would give me that clarity. Common opinion is that the Gold doesn't like closed back but the Port City ( for those who haven't see one) has a narrow port that goes the width of the cabinet along the bottom. Anyone run a Gold or Golds in this type of cab?
    Thanks

    I just wanna say Celestion Gold is very good speaker for heavy metal.
    Very focused and tight.
