    I'm considering getting either cabinet. The CB would be easier to haul since they're slightly smaller and lighter.

    Anyone have experience with both to be able to comment on how different they sound? I know that on paper the full size B115 goes deeper than the compact CB115. That doesn't necessarily tell the whole story.

    I asked Dave for his thoughts and he said that yes, the B115 goes deeper but also commented that the CB115 sounds good for 5 string too.

    I play a 5 string bass and I'd be pairing it with a 2x10.

    I'm presently using a similar set up with a EVM 15B in a TL606 cabinet (which is about the same size as the CB and has approx. the same tuning). The low end seems OK, but I suppose more would be better:D

    Not from a sound point of view, but from a visual point of view: You'll have a stack that's as tall as it is wide! :p I hope your ok with that. Otherwise, that setup should rock. :bassist:
