    Very simple poll, which do you prefer: 1x15's (cabs and combos) or 2x10's, sound-wise.

    If you have the time please state why you like one over the other
     
  2. I prefer 10" drivers.. in general..

    and as long as I know... There are much better 2x10 combos tan 1x15's in the market..

    I mean.. most 2x10 are intended for powering an extension cab, and have better amps.

    2X10, if theyre ported right you can get just as much depth and low end as a 1X15 with more clarity and punch

    A good 1x15 will blow away 2X10 any day..

    This had kind of been done, but my vote is for both -- I like to use a 1X15 and a 2X10 in combination.

    If I had to go either/or, I'd probably go with my 1x15, but I prefer both.

    I voted 15, only because if I HAD to choose, that would be my choice being Im in a metal band, and I need the lows. However, I prefer a 1x15 and 2x10 combination.

    When I A/B'd the Bergantino 210 vs. the 115, I liked the 15 better. Just sounded more like my sound. With a different pair of cabs, I might have gone another way. My practice combo is a 115.

    All around, a 15 is the ticket. 10's are great in the
    right application (and if ya got enough of em). An
    old rule of thumb for bass amplification..ya gotta
    move some air=surface area of the speaker cone.
