    Hi, Kids:

    Apart from the impedance difference, which cab(s) would you choose and why?

    The Baggy is a big cab!! Larger that the standard Eden/SWR box, and heavier, but size does matter!!This cab kills!!
    The Boogie option is great if you do smaller gigs/practices because you can leave the 15 at home...
    (I would go Bag End)

    I just spent some time with the big end and would have to agree provided you have enough power to use it. Personally, I'm not crazy about the coaxial arrangement not quite hi-fi enough for me. I prefer a tweeter. It's a heavy cab! Mesa cabs have always left a little to be desired.

    You need to be corrected.

    My BE cab is co-axial AND has a tweeter. You make it sound like an either or option.

    I think that the mesa would have a tighter sound than the bag end....BUT...the Bag End is a'll knock the socks right off of granny's feet!.....need I say more.....

    The cab has three all black drivers and on driver w/red, right??
    Where is the horn/tweeter in your cab? You got me thinking I got jipped or something!!

    The tweeter is INSIDE the speaker that has the red dot on it.

    O.K., I see where you're coming from...I guess it's a matter of terms used...When you say "coax" that implies(almost always) that the driver has a HF built-in as part of the driver..the coax IS the HF driver...

    I really like my custom Q10B. Built like a tank and I don't really miss the tweeter for the most part. I don't think it's significantly bigger or heavier than other 4x10s unless they're Neo.

    I got this cab as well. It handles every beautifull note that comes out of your bass, if you have good stuff... you will be very satisfied with the sound from the Bag End.

    It could be a little heavy though... but once you're playing, the internal struggle will definitely be over.

    not that this helps you at all...but
    I use Boogie 2x10 and 1x15 road cabs..and I will be swapping them out this year for BagEnd cabs. FWIW

    the Boogie cabs kick ass..but I think the BagEnd cabs have better fidelity and more dimension.
