    Hi all,

    I might go buy a new amp setup and I was wondering if I should go with a 12'' bassed rig or a 10'' one.
    I know I must try them, but I'm curious to opinions in advance.
    I'm thinking about a head around 500 to 700 watts at 4ohm and strat with one cab at 8ohm. I think to start wit a 2x12 or a 4x10.
    With the 4x10 I can later add a 2x10 and have 2, 4 or 6x10, but the power levels might not be matched then?
    I can do the same with te 12''s, but I think more to buy a 4x10 with it later on to be more versatyle.

    Especially when I get the 4x10 back from the repair shop ( speaker probs )
