Cabinet quandary

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by dirtrider, Jul 13, 2003.


  1. So I got myself an Avatar 2x12 cab to go with my SVT3 Pro. Now I'm thinking I want another cab to give a little more punch to the highs.

    Now, I'm leaning towards a 2x10 because I don't want to haul around a 2x12 and a 4x10 cab. Only thing is, will this give me the results I'm looking for? Any of you running a 2x12 and a 2x10? If so, does it work well, or should I just say goodbye to my back and get the 4x10?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I've been known to swap between a 2x10 and a 4x10 for mids and highs. The biggest difference is the volume. With the 4x10 sitting on top, I can get into that rediculously loud arena where you're overpowering PA systems and upsetting everybody. The 2x10 doesn't go quite as loud but works better in most gig situations.

    Disclaimer, I use a 15 for bottoms, not a 2x12. But the theory is the same - one speaker for lows, another for everything else. It's a tried and true formula and you should get good results.
