    Anyone use two 2x10s instead of a 4x10?

    4x10 = sore back :(

    My original plan was a Avatar 2x12 paired with my Avatar 2x10 Delta. If I stick a 2x10 Neo on the bottom, will I notice a BIG difference? I play heavy/fast punk, so I don't need a huge amount of "dub" lows goin' on. I've seen other heavy/punk/metal bands playing with 4x10s before, so am I really gaining that much more trying to buy the 2x12, or should I save my back and wallet and get the second 2x10 NEO?

    :confused:
     
  2. An additional 2x10 sounds like a good idea to me. In fact if I was running 10's I would stack the 2 cabs vertically to produce a more focused sound that should more evenly disperse the sound around the room.

    I also read awhile ago somewhere about getting an extra couple of db's because the cabs will be "coupled'.....any truth to this?

    YES! I've got two Delta B210s that sound great together. I've used them stacked vertically, layed down side by side, and every other way. Gives you a lot of flexibility. I had a NEO 210, but sent it back because it sounded baggy to me.

    Don't suppose you could elaborate on the "baggy" part? :D

    Yah, it felt slower and less punchy, the lows were better but the tight mids weren't there. It almost sounded like the difference between tubes and solid state. Loved the weight though.
