    i am just curious if there would be a noticable acoustic difference between an swr golith jr. (2x10) paired with a s.o.b. (1x15) and a swr golith III (4x10) paired with a big ben (1x18) run from the same head. I turn the tweeter off in the 1x15 so i don't think there will be much difference there. Just curious on what you guy's think. thanks.

    2x10 + 1x15 = 4x10 + 1x18?

    35 != 58

    Nope. :D

    Volume and low-end, I think, would be the factors more present in the second setup. Just my educated guess.

    4x10+15 vs 4x10+18.... probabally close, 18 might make a difference if you're using a 5 or a lowered tuning. 18's typically have a lower range.

    2x10 vs 4x10... the difference is huge, that's twice the surface area. i'm not up to date on the exact specs of of swr's gear and not really up to looking it up right now. go to the website, look up the specs, go to the local shop and try out stuff and see what's best for you. the big rig would be over kill for jazz or a non-hard rock type setting, the smaller might not be enough for a louder setting.

    Like appler said, The 410/118 set up has more cone area, 586.34 inches squared compared to 333.625 inches squared. More cone area means you can push more air. The 18 will most likely extend lower then the 15 as well as a 410 having a lower range then a 210 as well as more punch.
