No!!! Sorry, I must not have been very clear in my post...I think every part is relevant. And if I did think the speakers were not relevant, I sure wouldn't put such expensive ones in our cabs!
The problem is that great cab design is much more complex than most us of us have considered, so the context I was speaking from is just that the mere size of the speakers involved doesn't determine what the cab will sound like.
Not to mention the oversimplification of "Which sounds better, 10', 12's or 15's?" There are so many different types and brands built for many different applications, it's just not a great starting point to help someone select the best cab for their situation.
Does that clear anything up? I'm still on my first cup of coffee
