    True! Thank you for reminding me :p
    Have seen this before but completely forgot about it...

    Just tested it with my smartphone, the F12-X200 performs superb with music+guitar :)

    Another update.
    Last week took it to rehersal, it wasn't so good...
    At high volume, it sounds "boxy" compared to my cabinet. As if the speaker is put in a box, don't know how else to describe it.
    Band members were not impressed and asked me to bring my cabinet again next rehearsal.

    I guess I wanted to like it more than I should because of all the effort and money put into it.
    It's still a great speaker and certainly usable as FRFR, but might have to put it in a bigger cabinet.
    At this point however, I'm done experimenting.

    Will probably keep it for home so I can leave my cabinet at our rehearsal place.

    Is it in a closed back cab? What amp? I have one in an open back 1x12 and it sounds great loud, as long as I have enough juice powering it.

    Keep in mind that it is not anywhere near as efficient as a standard guitar speaker, so you will need significantly more juice from the power amp to drive it at louder volumes. Even then, since a single speaker is only rated to handle 200w, you may need multiples depending on your definition of loud.
