Speakers for Open and Closed Cabs?

Q: Can I install any speaker into a closed-back or open-back guitar cabinet, or are some specifically made for one type of cabinet or another?

A: Guitar speakers aren’t sold as being specifically for one type of cabinet or another, but it certainly is true that some speakers work better in one type of the other. Factors that can influence this include the speaker’s resonant frequency and the amount of self-damping the speaker has.
