I think I know the answer, but what the heck... I get a great sound from my Genz Benz Shuttle 3.0 combo at home at low to mid volume. Full, thick, sweet. When I get out to gigs - with or without PA - I find when I have to crank it up a bit, it isn't quite the same - of course. I'm guessing I need more speaker surface. I know I can only expect so much from a 1x10. I love the small package, but I miss a little of the "presence" for lack of a better term. A bigger cab is my only answer, right?
