    i am going to put either 2x12's or 1x15 under a 2x10. would i feel the 12's as much as the 15? im looking for some rumble to put under my 10s.

    I believe that 2x12's will beat a 1x15 rumble wise any day of the week...

    Just upgraded my amp from a 1x15 combo to a 2 x12 cab with a head and i feel that the 2x12 is a better way to go.

    I also agree that a 2/12 would put more woof under your 2/10 than a 1/15 :cool:

    due to more surface area?

    Yeah more speakers yield more dbs ususally. And the combined effect of two 12's will provide more punch than a single 15.
  8. I like my 2x12 much better than my 1x15. I think I'm going to get rid of my 1x15 in favor of another 2x12.

    They both have similar low end but the 2x12 has a much more musical, tighter sound.

    thats funny muzikman cause i am looking into avatar cabs. you like em so far?
  10. Yes I like them very much. These are the best deal in cabs I personally know of. There may be a better deal out there but I'm not aware of it.
