Have you seen the new 1x12 SC20 combos? ;-)
Do you think Marshall dropped the ball by putting a 10" speaker in the SC and SV instead of a 12"? I think they would sell a lot more if they put those amps in the same size cab, as the mini Jub,.....and a 12" speaker, also like the Jub. I think that most folks, when they spend $1500 on single speaker Marshall combo, expect a 12" speaker, I know I would.

I remember when I was getting ready to buy my SC20h, I was thinking, if the combo had a 12" speaker I would consider it, but with a 10" speaker, I was out! It would be a much more desirable amp if it came in a cabinet like the Dsl20cr,...and a 12" spk of course.

Absolutely!
You've hit the nail on the head there mate.
I can't understand why they chose that, and yet put them (the sc and sv combo's ) in the same category as the mini jube! Which has a 12inch speaker?
Makes no sense to me.
I'm the same as you, Scozz. Was keen on the combo, until I heard about the 10inch speaker, then that was not an option for me!
I have no doubt that the people who own one of these combo amps love them, but it was a deal breaker for me.

I do not own one @scozz, but I do not think it is a negative. Logistically and forensically in the series, the mini Jub back is probably best suited physically to give a combo with a 10" speaker some punch.

About the 10" or 12"; Change the back to any, but will it sound and feel the same?
Some cool customizing can be had, especially between the SC and Jubilee ;-)

I have the SC/SV20H and they sounds great with my cabs.

An acquaintance has a SV20C, it sounds really good, much better than I thought with the 10" speaker.

Has nothing to do with combos, but at practice, I play my Axe Fx through a 10" active monitor. The little monitor sits atop a speaker stand (tripod), and puts out a lot of sound. Our other guitar player plays through his Orange 2x12, and I hang with him just fine. Our singer asked me one night "is all that sound coming out of that little speaker?". That little 10" monitor puts out some low end, almost seems like the sound has to be coming from another source.
