Bobby's speaker cabinets backwards?

Postby unnbrokenchain » Wed Nov 17, 2010 1:10 pm

Hey, I just caught Furthur one more time in Reading last night. It was a pretty good show. Met some cool people, and the pollock tie-dye backdrop is truly amazing. But, I could not stop staring at Bobby's two 2X12 speaker cabinets. They're backwards facing Russo's drums. Is Bobby losing his marbles? Or am I just missing something? I'm sure one of you have the answer to this complex and technical observation. Bobby is playing a black Gibson Les Paul by the way.

Here's my post on this subject from the other thread:


Regarding the two 2-12" Vox loaded speaker cab's powered now by the stereo Boogie power amp, Bob ONLY uses them to "feel" the guitar on stage since the in-ears lack the gut feel and full body experience. I'm guessing that when they faced forward, it may have been too much brightness shooting at the house, and Bob only needs the warm chunk of that sound and not the bright cut. So to tame it in the house, but still provide the beef, he has them backwards and baffled so it doesn't blast the drums or the 2 vocalists.
