    I guess my question would be is there a way to rewire the 6x10 so that it has a 8 ohm rating?? of course the other direction would be to buy a 4 ohm 15. And has anyone tried out this combination?? curious to how its gonna sound...........any suggestions would be appreciated...By the way I use a Mesa Boogie 400+ head.

    If you wanted the Ampeg SVT 15E, it's 8 ohms - but you can rewire to 4 ohms.

    I think that a single 15 would get drowned out by the 610. Especially if they are being driven by the same amp.

    And by rewire you mean put a new driver in? :confused:

    Get another 610 or a SWR Henry 8x8. I really don't think a 15 can compete with the bass a 610HLF puts out.

    The other option is to sell the 610 and get a 810.

    Adding a 15 to a 610HLF is going to make the 15 sound mousy.

    You'd need a 2x15 cab to make it useful with a 6x10. I'd hate to be your back but I'd love to be your orthopedist ;)

    you would need two 115s or a twin 15 cabinet.

    No. The drivers in that cab are 6 ohm wired series/parallel. You'd have to replace all the speakers to make it 8 ohm.

    Get a 4 ohm 2x15 cab if you really want 15's on top of the 6x10, it would probably sound a lot better than a 1x15.

    IMHO, the best speaker combo for a rig like that is a 15" on bottom and a 2x10 on top and stacked vertically or a 4x10" on top. I'm partial to the 2x10 because I like my speakers in a column.

    I use an Ampeg SVT 610 HLF & two Ampeg SVT 15E's. Seems to even out the sound very well.

    Likewise on the vertical, and likewise on the balance matching. A good fifteen can easily keep up with a 210 in volume/balance depending on impedances of each cab and whether one is using a dual-channel power amp or not, and often can make a great contribution to a 410 - if it's a good driver in a large enough cab. If not, might as well just stick with more Tens ; }
