So what would you guys pair with a DB751?
You mentioned a DB 410. You might consider 2 DB 210's instead. You could stack them vertically - sounds better than one wide and deep 410 cab that's awkward to move. I learned that vertical stack tip here on TB. That's what I did with my 2 GS 210's and it sounded better than stacking the cabs as if they were a 410 (and for the record, the GS 210's are not mid-scooped - I'm tired of reading that here on TB). Don't know what your "tone goals" are, as it's termed here on TB but another cab could be one of the 412 cabs from Aguilar. Aguilar makes great cabinets. I built my rig with the cab first. I was looking for a single large cabinet and so I took a different turn away from the usual gear. This was a risk.
I tried the DB 751 with my fEARful 1515/66 in a local store. It was a perfect match of power and tone. It was a tremendous leap of faith on my part to custom order my cab from a builder because I did not hear a fEARful before ordering the build nor had I dealt with that builder before. The well engineered genius of the Aguilar DB 751 is equal to that of Green Boy's cabinets. And it's true that fEARful cabs can give you a variety of tones. This is how it looked as I tested the rig.
