    Title says it all ... I'm just wondering... I thought a 115 adds a nice warmth and depth to a 410 but then I see various bands gigging with a 810 or 2x 410 cabs... I'm planning to buy a new rig somewhere in the near future. Can you give me the advantages of 115+410 and 410+410? If this is asked before, give me a kick in the ass (and throw in the link to that thread ;) )

    Go for the 115+410. I've had both setups and very much prefer the versatility of the 15 and/or 410. When playing a small room or practice you can choose which cab best suits the situation. I bring the 15 for acoustic or small gigs, use the 410 for practice. A 115 is usually smaller and lighter(=portable)than a 410 also. When using both I like the lows that the 15 adds. I would always rather too much low frequencies than not enough.
