    I recently bought the Ashdown ABM 500 with the 15" speaker. So far its been great, really driving me along! However, my only concern is that when moving further up the fretboard, the midrange really disappears!

    I was wondering what people would recommend to get the midrange i.e. im thinking that a cab (probably 2x10") could solve the problem????

    I have the same combo and it is my aim to pair it up with the ABM 2-10 when finances allow.

    The only thing i know about the MAG2-10t is that it is only rated at 250watts in comparison to the 400watt ABM so i'm not too sure, it depends on if you can trust yourself with the output level!!

    Yer thats what I dnt rly understand. Because the amp is so much more powerful than the cab, what are the consequences when the output is turned up???

    Had the exact same cab. Paired it up with an Avatar Neo 2X10. Sounded good. Plenty of power for just about any situation. Depending on your location I'd go for the Avatar. I've since moved on from both of those.

    Seemed to me that amp always had that hard and heavy old school rock sound no matter what cabs I went through with the 15. Sounded great but it was only that one sound I could seem to get out of it. I seemed to loose notes when I went up the neck until I started using my Status neck'd bass.The guitar player and drummer at the time even got excited by it.

    I don't care much for the mag cabs. I've heard the original series sound good but the new ones just don't do it for me.

    Let us know what you end up with and how you like it. Pics never hurt either.
