Hey Y'all, First off let me fully acknowledge that specs don't tell you how a cab sounds, only how the output and input relate. However, given a lack of opportunities to try out all the different cabs on the market a careful examination of the specs can give a good indication of what cabs to seek out to try out (possibly through purchase and returns if none can be found locally). So my question becomes how to compare specs from different companies, in particular the frequency response, without full information (I rarely see full charts that would let you really get into how they compare). For example, like many people, I want the low frequency response down to my lowest fundamental (E, 41 Hz as a 4-stringer) to be as flat/true as possible to get good depth to my sound. I also want light weight and small size. Let's throw in great sensitivity and power handling while we're at it. And it has to sound good, too. And cheap. For example I have owned, and liked the sound and behavior of, a SWR WM-15t cab. Nothing exotic, a 1x15 in a relatively compact box. The specs listed for it give it a frequency response of -6db at 40Hz and 16KHz (100 db sensitivity). So let's say that is my benchmark for looking at additional cabs because I liked the way it handled the low end of my basses. Other cabs I find interesting include: Aguilar GS-112 +-2db @ 42 Hz, 16 KHz (102 db sensitivity) Bag End S-15D +-?db @ 50 Hz, 4 KHz (103 db sensitivity) Goliath III Jr +-3db @ 45 Hz, 15 KHz (105 db sensitivity) Ashdown Mini 15 +-? @ 41Hz, 4 KHz (96 db sensitivity) Now I'm sure there are plenty of others. But with these it looks like I would definitely be happy with the low end of the Aguilar, Ashdown and Goliath Jr but the Bag End might be lacking. But without the details I can't tell if the drop off at 40 Hz might actually be less than the SWR WM15t - since it has a 6db drop off. I don't know of local places I can go to check these different cabs out and can't afford to buy them all and return the ones I don't like. So as I look at what I might want the GS-112 pops up as meeting all the numerical criteria (response, weight, size, cost) and would be a reasonable risk to buy and check out. But I know I liked the SWR (it's a bit bulkier than I'd like or I'd just go that route again) and maybe a 15" speaker would be more to my liking (my GB 12" combos are nice but I liked the 15" SWR better). I know the best approach would be to line up the different things I'm interested in at a retailer and compare them but that's not going to happen. So any advice on how to evaluate the specs to determine which ones to track down for a trial?
