Is anyone using this or a similar set up with double bass? Any input would be appreciated.
Well, it's certainly a nice rig. I myself use a Audiokinesis Thunderchild TC 112 when I'm playing concerts. I don't think their will be any problem with EQ and available amplifier power. Your biggest concern with an upright, would be using the 2x10 and 112 in tandem, because all that speaker surface projecting sound, is going to have a tendency to feed back. So, I think your biggest issue, would be deciding to use either the 112 or 210 cabinet, rather than both, if it will support you on the gig.
That way you could send the bass FOH and avoid the feedback issue. You forgot to mention what pickup you are using on your bass. That usually makes a great deal of difference in how your bass sounds, and what EQ works best.
