Looking for some feedback ..any info appreciated. Thanks
Well, if this helps, my HT115 is my favorite standalone and it's a very tight cab on it's own, with the whole spectrum pretty well represented. I can only speculate that two together would be more of a great thing.
Also - and others may disagree with me - I don't think the HT115 sounds that different than the HT210 (just a little more midrange, IMO), and the HT210/HT115 stack is just phenomenal.
Sorry I don't have real world experience with two 115's though. Let me know if I can clarify anything.
Not exactly, but maybe this will help.
I have used many combinations of cabs through my semi-illustious career - 1x15, 2x15, 1x15+4x10, 4x10, 2x12, 2x12+2x12 - and I mostly use an SWR Silverado Special (2x12) on top of a BagEnd 1x15 (S15B-D). I really like the way it sounds.
However, I also use the 1x15 alone in a particular building where we play once a month. It is perfect. I also have a second S15B-D, and, when stacked, increases the "fullness" factor many times over. Used single, it sounds great. Lots of bottom but plenty of mid-range, too, and the highs are there. Very full.
Stack a second on on top, and you get PLENTY MORE bottom, still plenty of mids and plenty of highs, too. When you stack 'em, it will easily flap your pants' legs! It doesn't double the volume, but it increases the depth compared to a single.
If you like the sound of one by itself, you will love the sound of two stacked.
I use a nv215 instead
Yes I did! Used them for a while, nice throaty sound.
I sold one and got a 210 because I could justify 2 amps easier if they were very different. I got a NV425 and a Tube head. sometimes I question that desision. Usually not for long though.
...and would be sweet with your '72 SVT.
This makes me wonder.. are there any 1x15 or 1x12 sealed cabs out there that are any good?
The NV215 is a phenomenal cab, but the problem may soon be in finding one to buy. Jim is discontinuing this product, and I do not believe that he has any more in his shop to send out. So, it's either used (like anyone would sell one!), or find a dealer who still has one in stock. It's a phenomenal cab, IMHO.
Now, I am also a big fan of the HT115 and two of them (or one HT115 and one HT210) makes for a great rig as well. If you need/want the higher frequencies from a tweeter, then you might be better served by an HT115 x2 or HT115/HT210 setup. Coincidentally, both of these cabs are also discontinued...
That's okay, though, because now we have the Bergantino IP series (and of course, I already have my NV215! ).
