    I've done my best to ensure they are mono compatible. Obviously the resultant summed-mono audio will have a slightly different tone to the L+R audio but nothing that should introduce phasing artefacts.
    I would recommend the user to consider how they intend to use these files and always (not just these but ANY audio whatsoever) ensure mono compatibility. There are still listeners that use mono devices and many live PA FOH systems still run mono.

    Cool. I'd pretty much given up on stereo IRs since my previous experience with stereo IRs with any "space" so often had comb filtering issues.

    Just tried all the (free) stereo cabs, and there's a massive difference between some of them!! there are a couple that are perfect for that old school "chug" that i'm fond of, but I'm absolutely lovin' the cab b (one cab, 2 mics I believe)….full, fat without flub, clear without being harsh and that's on the settings from my previous IR I was using (mostly singtall warm and a couple of patches using friedman BE)…..

    Rehearsal tomorrow to try it out and a show on Friday....Have converted the other guitarist in the band to an AA12 when he has some money spare, he's using my "hand me downs" (nova system and matrix VB800 as I got myself a Headrush 108) at the moment and he's gonna shit bricks when he hears it :D....

    They should be .wav files.
    Just import them like any other CAB IR.

    What type of cab/speakers have these IRs been made from?

    This is what the link says "Rather than a complete description of what cabs, mics, placement, etc, were used let your ears decide rather than your eyes!"

    The cabinet was actually a well known brand and a bit of an industry standard. However, i removed the back and disconnected some of the speakers for some IRs (i will name the make and model in a later post but for now want to chat about preconceptions)
    Each cone had a different sound. There are infinite variables- Mic type(s), mic placement, speaker placement (ie raised off floor) room/floor reflections, open-back removed, power amp used, etc.
    Anyone not a fan of “this particular cab” or perhaps seeks the tones of a specific cabinet will have pre-conceptions and expectations before they listen. Some guitarists i have met in the past (and im not referring to anyone here) have been quite snobby about gear and often you mention you use modeller they instantly dismiss it and claim it sounds inferior, because that’s what they believe in. Whereas those unaware of the modeller are pleasantly surprised when all is revealed.
    I guess a similar thing happens for cab irs on a smaller scale. I’ve tried some cabs that id never considered or expected would sound suitable only to be proved wrong and vice versa.
    Enough of my waffling on. Please, if you dont mind, @Seven Heaslip (or anyone else whos tried them) share your thoughts on the cab and i will reveal what is is.

    Fair enough, I get what you're saying & agree to an extent. I tend to download stuff (like IRs) when I'm not near my gear & will come back to trying it at a later point so probably forgot reading on your website that you'd explained why no cab/microphone/placement details are listed.
    Definitely not a gear snob & have no pre-conceptions as to what cabs/mics etc should be used where. TBH my knowledge & experience with most well known amps, cabs, speakers, & mics in the real world is almost non-existent so I've been enjoying learning more about these components of a guitar sound the past year via diving into the modeling world with my AA12 & having an open mind as to what gets me to the point where I'm happy with my sounds.
    When I get 'round to trying those IRs out will post my thoughts as I appreciate the fact anyone posts stuff for free that likely took a lot of hard work to create.
