    i cant say from experience, but i'd try a 15 and an 18 and see which you like better..

    it seems (maybe just coincidence) alot of people preferr a 15 with a 2-10 (balances well while NOT being biamped)

    and a 18 with a 4-10 (again, balances well while not being biamped)..

    people complain that a 15 isn't enough bottom for a 4-10 / the 4-10 overpowers the 15 so they use an 18..

    people complain that an 18 is too much bottom for a 2-10 so they use a 15..

    now, if you are biamping it is different because you can individually control each cabinets loudness..

    makes sence to me but like i said, i AM NOT speaking from experience.. all cabs and speakers will be different so you must just try for yourself i guess..


    best of luck
