    Maybe you have two smaller cabs instead of a single larger one. Whatever the case, I want to know about the drivers in your full rig, the largest rig you make out of whatever cabs you own. Go!

    Two 3015's work for me.
    A lot of sound with very light weight.

    Not listed: 8 X 8". I do own 2 X 10 and 4 X 10 cabs but the 8 x 8 resides in the band trailer.

    Yeah, it's occurred to me now that there's a lot of options I didn't list--including mis-matches like MY OWN RIG. :D

    As of this minute it consists of a 212 and a 410.

    I started the poll to see just how popular a pair of 12s really is these days compared to other setups.

    1 x 12" - 3012LF + mid
    1 x 15" - 3015LF + mid

    Mix and match as required.

    No options for this on the poll :crying:

    I've pretty much used a 215 for most of my life, but, for the last 5 years or so it's been a 212 loaded with 3012HO's, the best 12" drivers I've ever played through.

    I voted 2x15 since that what I use for most gigs. I also have 4x15 and 1x18 folded horn cabs that need to see more action.

    I am getting by with an Epifani 2 x 10, but a UL310 is on my wish list, probably sometime in 2013, more piston area and lower impeadance will let me get more out of my amp.

    I'm often asked by the guitar player to drive a little harder and I don't want to push the SS amp too hard. I'm driving the master at 1/2 span of that potentiometer and much beyond that I feel I'm asking too much of it.

    You need an "Other" option.

    How far the knob is turned is pretty meaningless. One more driver on top of two isn't going to much big difference.

    I've got a pair of 1X12's and a pair of 1X15's. I normally use the the 15's at gigs.

    1515/66/1 is my big cab, but I'm adding a pair of 12/6/1's post new year.

    1x15 for me but it is a 3-way design and weighs only 42 lbs! AND sounds great...

    2x12 here, sometimes with a 6, sometimes without depending on amps(s) used. (Active biamp).

    In the coming months, will be redoing it using the same two 12's, a passive crossover, a different 6 and different baffle and port layout in what I percieve to be a little better design.
