    Which of these does the HT210 sound best paired up with?
    So I guess this is truely asking for a comparison of the 112 vs 115.

    I'm intially leaning towards the HT112 because of weight / portability.
    But
    The 115 seems to have been intended to mate with the 210.

    Any suggestions??

    The 12 sounds quicker and still fills in the lows. 15's have their own sound. Use your ear, I wouldn't worry about a few lbs... I like 10's and 12's over 15's. It's a matter of personal preference... Either way they make great cabs.

    I like the HT210S with a 112S.

    The HT115 is designed to match up with the HT210. The HT112 ssounds better with another HT112 or EX112.

    ask Jim Bergantino what he thinks. Personally, i would go with the 112. The 112 is more focused, lighter weight and fills in the lows very well, handling 5-strings with ease. And the 112 was actually made to go with the 210, and wasn't discontinued like the 115. That should say something.

    If you have the deep HT210 there is no better cabinet to add on than the HT115. My brother just bought a Berg stack and I feel they compliment eachother perfectly. They make-up for eachothers deficiencies.

    Well I have to agree the HT115 paired with the HT210 is utterly undeniable. Having said that however, I gigged in a loud room with that HT210 with a single 12 on top and it was absolutely brilliant and in no way was deficient. Obviously the 15 will give much more low end and add it's own combined character to the mix, but a single 12 will augment the 210's own particular vibe and contribute more to that.

    Decisions, decisions.....
    I've got my eye on an Epifani T-115 to test with the HT210.
    It kind of splits the difference on weight.

    Anyone tried this combination?
