    I've just bought myself an SVT 4 Pro w/ two Aguilar GS112 cabs. The other day I tried my amp with an Hartke 115 XL cab, and I must say it sounds alot more the way I want. I've not liked any of the 1x15 cabs I've tried before, but this cab has a great attack and I really like it.

    For what I know, Aguilar should be better gear than Hartke, but I've never felt this kind of response from a basscab before, and certaintly not from a 1x15" cab. Could it be the aluminium element?

    Comments anyone?

    My personal opinion, the Hartke 1x15 is nothing special in terms of 15's, and Aguilar makes MUCH higher quality cabs in terms of build quality. Preference for sound is sujective. If the Hartke floats your boat and gives you the tone you like, then go forth and be happy.
