what do you prefer?
1X15+2X10, deep low and nice tone.
i agree i love 2x10 tone... backed with a 1x15 deepness *sigh*
I'm an all 10 kinda guy. My new setup is going to be a 210 + 410.

agreed...I have a 15", but I'm partial to the 4x10 or 2x10--more punch.
I would never use all fifteens. But if you like 'em, go for it!
ive currently got 4x10s in my setup...but it lacks the low and midrange tone im looking for.. i need something smooth and silky...im thinking a 15 and 2 10s...
I prefer 2x10 and 2x15.
All 15's. Yuck, IMO. 1x15 and 2x10's: great set up; lows, punch and definition.
I have a mesa 2x15 powerhouse and I love it. The lows will make you crap your pants.
*sigh again* its too bad that im 15 and too poor to afford great masterpieces in amplification.... *dream setup.... 1 4x10, and 1 or 2 1x15's* ahhh o well my ibanez is shipping out tomorrow... mmmm btb510 not made anymore quality goodness...mmmmmmm lol
Mesa's 2x15 is extremely awesome, but I decided to go the 1x15 and 2x10. A little tighter sounding to me, but those mesa 15's really punch. I had to own the 1x15 first, and later added the 2x10 to compliment the 1x15. I did like the sound of the single 15 a little better than the double.
I could easily see someone prefering the 2x15 setup, like Sir. McCartney. I also got a wicked heavy sound out of them to.
Whatever you like, try out both setups if you can.
I have some great used/like new Mesa gear for sale if your interested. 400+, 1x15ev, 2x10ev diesels. Perfect condition.
I used to use 2 full-sized 1x15 cabs (a Pearce and a Fender). It sounded great, but I wanted to try something different, I wanted a smaller setup, and I was hoping to match my Trace Elliot amp with TE cabs. So I sold off the Fender, put the Pearce in the basement ('cause nobody wanted to pay a decent price for it), and bought a 2102/1153 stack (I wanted the 1518, but it got sold out from under me).
The new stack sounded great, too--but the original setup sounded better. The 2102 is definitely punchier in the higher ranges, but it cannot handle the low end stuff nearly as well as a 1x15.
Now I'm off the Trace Elliot thing (mainly because they used MDF for the cabs--very heavy), but I may still pick up a 1518 and try an 1153/1518 stack. With my new SWR Power 750, I could even use all three for a 2102/1153/1518 stack--but I can't fit it all in my car!
What a PITA, spending all that money to find out I liked 2 1x15's better...now I'm thinking about SWR cabs, too, but I don't like the fact that SWR's cabs are all different sizes--they don't stack well. The Trace Elliot stuff is all modular sizes and stacks every which way.
What kind of sound are you looking for? If you want a clear, punchy, mid-volume sound, go for the 2x10/1x15. If you want gut-punch low end thump with respectable highs, go for a 2 1x15's setup.
