    Long story, but I'm looking for 1-12 or 1-15 cabinets and I need them to be no more than 15" in depth. Many of the specs I've seen are 16" at the smallest. Anyone know any cabs that may match this spec? I see bagend has some, curious if there are any others .

    How do you like bag ends? I never played through them, but have always heard great things about them. Can they handle louder stage settings also? thanks.

    bag ends are a little "colored" sounding, the s15 is a great cabinet, even better is the s15x (with a coaxial horn). the s12 has a lot fo midrange but isnt the best low b cabinet
    they are very conservatively rated at 200 watts RMS but handle 800 peak watts - i push that stack with 800 - 2100 watts (not turned up all the way) and they are plenty loud

    thanks for the info, I'm going to keep my eyes open for a used pair of the 15s, should work well with my sm900.
