    I started with 10s because I play in small clubs.
    I could hear myself better.The bass still got out into the room,
    but I felt the punch quicker.I used to get complaints from bar managers
    at the back of the room,who'd say I was too loud.( when I used a 15'')

    I've watched a ton of videos with 15's at work. They're surprisingly articulate but it 12's for me.
  6. Cool story bruh.

    There's nothing muddy about modern 15" speakers.

    I've played through every configuration of bass cab, I went back to 15's years ago and couldn't be happier.
    I have nothing against the others and will probably add a 8x10 if I ever get an SVT in the stable, but 15's are just "home" to me.

    Although speaker diameter and low end frequency response have no correlation, I seem to fancy 15" speakers as well. Maybe it's just the looks of a bigger speaker. I don't know. Why do I love shrimp and spaghetti so much? I don't know that either. All I know is what my brain finds itself gravitating to.

    I use a Fender Rumble 150 combo with 15" speaker and horn turned off for bar gigs. Sounds good to me. I'm happy.

    I also went back to a 15 inch front ported cab from a 2x10. Maybe I'm a dinosaur but nothing sounds better than moving a lot of air. Now if I could just justify carrying a tube head. Ugh!

    LOL! I'm pre-cambrian in age, and I'm right there with you on that comment about tube amps. They sound great and the "feel" when playing through big iron is wonderful. But that dang weight!
