    Which cab should I use as an extention for my Bam 210? I would like to use a 115.

    another bam 210 would work better imho. matching cabs always sound better than non matching cabs, imho.

    If you like your 210 then +1 to what Jimmy said.

    +1 to them both, another similar 210 will provide everything you need, including more low end.

    Would another 210 be better than a 115 extention cab?

    Thanks

    2x 210 is one of the greatest innovations in human history.
    Small gig, take one.
    Big gig, take two.
    Same sound, every night.

    JimmyM,

    Are you suggesting to run a second combo, or just a 210 extension cab?



    If I remember correctly, Peavey used to make a "210 Pro" that would be a good match up to your Bam combo.

    On the basic level, 15s have about the same displacement as 2x10's, but are a better Impedance match to the air. This can contribute to the "deep fat 15 sound," but there's a lot more to it. This 15" vs that 2x10" could have way more low end, or way less, depending on the design.

    1x15" vs 4x10" is a different story, however.

    That being said, I'd still go for the 2x10, but bear in mind, one man's phase anomalies are another mans sweet blending of cab sounds.

    Hello All,

    I know this thread is an old one but I have been using a Peavey Bam 210 with a A/B box to a Peavey 115 combo. I have been using this for a while and I like it. What do you all think of this way of using two combo amps? Does anybody else do this?

  10. I've started using a 1x10" and a 15" and had no problems.
