  1. Out of the two, which would you choose? The 8x10 has plenty of low end on its own, not to mention a trademark tone. However, the 1x15 must really beef up the sound, and having 2 cabs make it easier to carry the rig around. What's your choice?
     
  2. 4 x 10 and 1x15 for a well rounded tone

    i'd have to say 4x10 and 1x15, cause thats what ive got.

    ive used a 8x10 loads of times and i dont really find theres much of a differance, not enough for me to buy one anyway!

    also its alot easier to carry a 4x10 and 1x15 up a flight of stairs! lol

    8x10 any day. my 8x10's are MUCH easier to haul up stairs and any where than any 4x10 or 1x15. unless of course for some reason you would rather pick up the friggin 8x10 and carry it. don't know why you'd do that though. the 8x10 glides on its casters, and goes up stairs one at a time very easily. my back much prefers rolling an 8x10 than picking up a 4x10.
