    I was originally going to get a 115 to go with my 410TVX but I was reading that it wasn't a good combination. I always thought this standard maybe because of my trace elliot background. What cab would go best with a 410? My sound consists of mainly the mids boosted and the treble slightly rolled back. I was considering so far an avatar 112, and a peavey tour 210.

    thanks
     
  2. anything with a 10 or a 12" speaker.

    Go with a matching 4x10

    Yes sir, the science says go with the same size speakers for the best results.
    But, we're talkin' human hearing here so nothings perfect!
    Beg, borrow or rent the cabs YOU think sound best and try them out together.
    Preferably in a live band.
    After much experimenting with cabinet combinations, what ended up working for me was "two" 210 cabinets stacked as a vertical 410. The science worked for my ears...your ears may say otherwise.

    If you like the sound of your cabinet, it follows that you'll like the sound of two of them.

    Adding a mix of different cabinets may sound good, and some mixed arrangements may sound as good as two of the same cabinet, but I gaurantee that little to nothing will sound better than doubling up on the same cabinet, especially if you love what that cabinet sounds like.

    If you like the sound of your cab, get another one.

    And if you don't want to tote around two 410 cabs, then a matching 210 would be the next choice. IMHO

    Yeah A 210 would be great... but heres the clincher!!!....if you are going to run a 210 and a 410 together.... remember if they are the same ohms..say 8 ohms...the 210 is going to be getting the same power as the 410 there by giving the 210 speakers twice the juice as the 410's speaker.... Not quite ideal but people do use them and they do work ok. the other option is to go the rout of running a 4 ohm 410 and a 8 ohm 210 giving you a 2.6 ohm power load. That way the 410 is getting 2/3rd's the power and the 210 is getting 1/3rd...there by dividing your power evenly between all the speakers in both the 410 and 210 cabs!! Now the only problem with that is that some, not all but some amps cant or shouldn't be run any lower the 4 ohms cause the get to hot and will fry a egg!!!... not a good way to start or end ones day!!!...so if you go that rout you will want to do some checking around to see what amp and speaker setup would work best for you!!!

    While I have never tried pairing a 4 x 10 with a 1x15 I have used a 2x10 with a 1x15 with striking results. What was previously stated about each cab receiving the same driving power if they are the same impedence rating is very true. You do not want to overdrive any cab so make sure whatever cab you buy can handle 1/2 the max rating of the amp.

    yeah I think im going to try out a 210. Another 410 is too much weight as my tvx is 115 already and another 410 would be roughly 70 pound minus epifani etc. Actually now that im thinking of it I think there is an epifani 310 somewhere on CL for 500. I may have to check that out,
