Physically bigger than some other 1x12 cabs out there but that's not a huge issue. Sounds great, has a fuller sound than some other Eminence speakers. The attenuation knob affects the tone as well, giving you a variety of tones to play with. Overall, I'm very happy with the product!

Problematic and solid working tool
I currently run the box with a Mesa Boogie Express 5: 50+ top section.
Usually, I use a Mesa 2x12 3/4 back box, but there are simple situations where the Palmer makes a better figure.
On the one hand, a 1x12er works better in smaller locations, as it sounds more defined and slightly quieter than a 2x12. Thanks to the FDM technology, my amp can be controlled both at home (5 watts) and in the prober room (25 watts) and on small stages (25 watts / 50 watts) in volume and power level control. The loudspeaker also gets into the hooves with less power (5 or 25 Watt mode of the amp) and produces an assertive sound.
From the sound, the speaker is fuller than a vintage 30 (more bass and treble) and more present (more treble) than the MC 90 Black Shadow by Mesa Boogie.
On the other hand, a 1x12er is much easier to transport than a 2x12 or 4x12.
Sure, a Mesa 2x12 is richer and more powerful and creamier, but it costs almost three times and weighs significantly more. The processing and the materials of a Mesa Box are certainly also more noble and high-quality, but this box is priced in something in the area that Eminence calls only for the speaker alone.
Sometimes it is also nice if the box is not quite as loud.
My conclusion: An absolutely practical and solid box, which can be used flexibly.
