    Folks,

    I am picking up a TH500 and two 112 Aggie cabs....I was going to get two DB112s (I love the sound, don't always need the tweeter, but it's useful now & then). Would I be better served getting one DB112 & a DB112NT? I'm wondering if tweeters on both cabs would be redundant, that using it on one of the cabs would be enough.....just looking for opinions!

    I have that setup (one DB112 and one DB112NT along with a TH500). I went for that combo for the very same reason you mention — I don't need (or want!) two tweeters, but being able to dial in a bit of one is nice. Plus, the top end on the DB112NT sounds slightly different than the DB112 with the tweeter turned off. So you'll have the advantage flexibility of two SLIGHTLY different sounding cabinets.

    I think that combo is the most fantastic sounding rig I've ever owned or played through. Every other rig I've owned, I've always been not totally thrilled about some aspect of the sound. But the TH500/DB112/DB112NT system is, to me, perfection.

    I'd go with one NT and one regular. I personally can't tell the different between the stanard and NT wit the tweet off.

    Two NT's sound fantastic - but the 1+1 setup gives you that sound PLUS more.

    Don't have the DBs but I ran a GS112 and GS112NT combination. Same thing applies, the NTs sound good on their own but having the one tweeter gives you a bit more flexibility.
    NT is a bit less costwise too - about $50 or something IIRC.
