fwiw the blue lettering is tacky as.
Everything the 15/6 does except with less volume and less to move around.
Some say the 12/6 is the diamond of the fEARful line and I can definitely see where they are coming from. Unless your band is quite loud, the 12/6 would likely be enough for the majority bar room bassitsts. Its the perfect combination of portability, volume potential and glorious tone.
Versus the 15/6, I can easily just drop it into the front seat of my Civic and that portability combined with its vol potential is just such a winning combination for me. At 43LBS, my 15/6 is no slouch either though.
As mentioned, I could also drop the 12/6 ontop of my 15/6 for huge firepower. I've done that a couple times, but as fun as it is, its really not necessary.
I can also use my 12/6 as vocal, backing track, and bass monitor. Works great with the Markbass "Markstand" wedge. This way I can get the mix I like (I have my own small mixer to adjust things) and get pretty dang loud without upsetting other bandmates.
