    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 :rolleyes: 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! :D 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.

    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.

    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...:meh:

    That's okay, though, because now we have the Bergantino IP series (and of course, I already have my NV215! :D).
