    I was looking at an 8X10 Ampeg cabinet or a 4X10 and 1X15 what would you recommend getting and what would be the positives and negatives of getting it that way?
    Thanks Jason
  2. If you want to rule the world you should get the 810. If you want to kinda rule it then get the 410 & 15.

    yea. umm.. 4x10+15 = More bottom.
    8x10 = more mids, and better cuts in a band.

    If i was trying to get a Tool sound what would you suggest?
  5. Buy a Drill
  6. Tool Rocks. I know that on the Aenima tour, Justin used 3 ampeg 8x10s and on the Lateralus tour he use just 2.

    Try and find an Ampeg SVT-1540HE. It's basically a 410HE and a 15E in one 8x10 box, but it's killer. Heavy, but not as heavy as an 8x10.

    I think the 4x10 is the best value.

    Would an 8X10 take the b string notes as good as if you had a seperate 115 cabinet?
  10. In response to the B question. I've played both set-ups and had no problem either way. I choose the BXT 410 and 115 HL4 cabs over the 8x10 so I have more options on gigs other then rock. Nothing like showing up at a small private party with an 8x10!

    to cut through more, the 8x10, but to have a better sound spectrum and more tonal control, the 4x10 on a 1x15
