    For your playing style,I'd probably say the 4x10". But if you want a little more full range,go with the 2x10"/1x15". -Luke

    The HLF puts out plenty of low end, it's pretty cool cab. I'd go with that one.

    Go play through the 4x10" for a bit,explore the tonal differences between that and the 2x10"/1x15" and see which suites your playing needs. Best bet. -Luke

    I dont know about the Ampeg 210/115 but the 410 HLF is a pretty big sounding cab. I would describe the sound as dark and deep (A/Bd againt my Bergantinos). I wish I had more opportunities to use my 410HLF...

    If you like the sound of the B series enclosures, I'd say go for the 2x10/1x15. The lows would be more focused due to a single driver 15". And you'd get better projection because the 2x10s would be closer to your ear level on stage more than a 4x10 would. I'd only recommend the 4x10 if you don't feel like moving to cabinets.

    If you like the SVT sound, I'd go for the 2x10 and the 1x18.

    My 410HLF works great in a band setting, even with having to cut through 2 loud guitars. I used to have 2 of them, but I had no need for both, so I use just one now. I am powering it with an SVT4Pro head, and it sounds amazing. I get all the lows I could ever need, and it has plenty of punch as well. Amazing cabs, IMHO.
