    Hey all,

    looking for some advice from Orange amp users...what set up would you recommend OBC410 plus an OBC115 or a OBC410 and a OBC210? (to be used with a Terror 500)

    Mainly looking for clarity and ability to push air.

    Thanks

    A second 410 will push far more air, with more clarity, than adding a 115 or 210.

    +1

    If I was going to play through Orange cabs, it would be through two of their 115's. I would never buy an orange cab, as they are quite overpriced for their performance margin compared to other local options.

    +1 for another OBC410 and a back brace.

    The OBC410 is not a light cab indeed.
    I own the OCB115 and the OBC410. Opting for a matching 410 as mentioned above will probably be your best bet as mixing cabs is not optimal. That said, I DO use both for bigger shows we play. They get loud, but they do tend to put out a slightly different tone and the 115 seems to carry the weight over the 410.

    If you plan on using the full setup at all times - I would probably suggest going for the matching 410s or as mentioned above, matching 115 cabs. If the goal is on having a modular setup that can be halved for playing smaller venues, I personally think the 115/410 setup is a decent solution and would prefer what the 115 is capable of over the 210 (but that is also just my preference for the 15's response).

    I don't care what peoplel say about matching cabs, I have the OBC 410/115 set up and it sounds amazing. Maybe if your talking a crappy ampeg 210 and 115 it doesn't sound good, but the Orange set up sounds amazing. Best of both worlds.

    The whole "anti 410 with 115" thing has never been about whether it sounds good, or anything to do with quality or crappiness of the cabs.
