    ok here's the thing, I've got my ampeg svt-350H with my svt 410he cabinet(the classic 4x10 cab) and i want a different brand for my 15 or 18. I want a cab that will have good clean crisp low end. can anyone help? :help:

    I don't know about you but every single 15" or 18" I have played through hasn't been anywhere near what I would call crisp. They were great for vintage boomy sounds, but I don't think crisp was in their vocabulary. I love that sound on recordings but I found out that day that I would rather have another 410 before I went with a subwoofer cab.

    The cabs I can remember playing through a Peavey 15" and the SWR 18".

    Neither rocked my world though.

    The Avatar B115 isn't muddy. Very punchy for a 15, but maybe not enough low end for you? Not sure.

    There are tons of options out there man,just search these threads and you'll see. I've played through plenty of "crisp" 15" speakers,although 18's are rare. -Luke
