    I was in my local GC, and saw the Tour 210 clearanced REALLY cheap. I bought one to use as a combo of sorts, figured it would be cheaper to use my existing Probass 500 head + the 210, then to buy a $400+ combo, and save a ton of weight, as the 210 is very, very light.

    They had the 210 sitting on a non-clearanced 115. It too seemed incredibly light (57 pounds the specs say). It looked nice as a mini-stack, but I'm concerned with the sound of a 115 mated to a 210.

    I have used a single 410 (Peavey 410 TVX) for what seems like forever. It handles a low B string perfect.

    I set the Tour 210 on the 410, and swapped cables while playing back and forth, and the Tour 210 sounds very similar, but does lack the super low end that my 410 gives me.

    But, I am 40 now, and hurt my lower back again, and I physically can not lift the 100+ pound 410 up into my Pathfinder anymore. The 115 seems doable, the 210 I can carry with one hand easily.

    To get to the point, I'm curious if there are any fans of 210+115 setups? Does the 115 give you that extra low end "oomph" that a 210 can sometimes be missing?

    All told, I could be out the door for $600 for the stack, new.

    My other option is to simply get another 210, and be right back where I started (on a side note, Peaveys cabinets are now 8 ohms. My head does 8/4/2, and my 410 is 4, so I am pushing 350 watts into that single cab. I would now be pushing the same 350 into the two cabs.)

    I had that setup briefly and only sold the 1x15 because it was a back breaker! I loved the sound of it though. I'm currently using a 1x12 under the 2x10 and it's almost as good as the previous setup just a bit more portable. When I see a 1x15 in the 40lb range and a mid level (non boutique) price tag, I may bite again.
  3. i had that set up before, the peavey tour 2x10 and i crate 15 though. i really liked it, that 2x10 was pretty great, but i just needed more. now i have 2 of the peavey tour 4x10s. these cabs are light and i like them alot, if the 15s anything like the 2x10 or 4x10 i think itd sound great. ive thought about trading in one of my tour 4x10s for the tour 1x15 to get that extra low end, but ive yet to try one or read any real reveiws on it. id be intrested if anyone knows where i could find a reveiw on the peavey tour 1x15.??

    I haven't read a lot of reviews on it either, but all tell you what, Peavey seems to be pretty rock solid gear, I owned the 410TX for 4 years, never one complaint. I tried Tour 115 at guitar center one day and thought it was pretty awesome. That's all I've got on that though. Good Luck !

    I'm a fan of the 210/115 set up. Very full range, and compatable, I think. Conversely, a 212 is a good option, too, and would hang in all by itself. Or, as mentioned, 210/112 is another way to go. Really, it's whatever does it for you.
  6. I've got the Peavey Tour 115, Tour 410 and an Avatar B210. I've also got The Peavey Tour 450 and a Peavey Mark VI bass amp heads. It seems no matter what configuration I use it always sounds good. Each combination sounds unique and different, but still awesome. I'll probably end up selling the Avatar and getting two of the Peavey tour 210 speaker cabs. I sure would like to try out that Avatar B153 though before I get rid of my Avatar B210.
