    I got a SWR Goliath III 4x10. The poweramp is a Carvin DCM2000 w/ a SWR IOD. Do you think the 15" Son of Bertha would be a decent low end, or a 18" Big Ben? Another Goliath maybe? I do slap bass alot, and heavy rock music, and contemporary funk rock stuff (Incubus). And how should this be plugged, stereo or mono, or what? Thanks, lots of questions, and so little time!!!

    Determining which second cabinet's truly subjective.

    If you're content with your 4x10", and want more volume, get another 4x10".
    If you'd like more low end, get the 18" or 15".

    The choice between the 15" or 18" is just a matter of how much low end you want.

    I suggest looking into the Bag End Deep 1x15".
    That has to be one of my favorite 15"'s.

    The 18" SWR Big Ben gets my vote. But what happened to your name Bigbohner? It only says Bigbohn now :confused:

    aye, dont ask, dude. ive gotten into so much crap with mods, it aint funny. some people online complained and complained, ....and again complained about how vulgar my name is, so I decided to change it to stop the madness and be on a good level with the authorities. its seems it hasn't worked.
