    ok This is just what I know from sound guys and what I've been told by my keyboard player who owns a recording studio so take it for what it's worth. Sound guys are rolling off the low end more and more often, but the 15's do put out a great sound. But I like the tens more for the punch. But I would go with the Hartke 210xl and then maybe add a 115xl later. They are 200 watt cabs and would sound great and might be a little cheaper too. It's the best of both worlds. Or maybe see what kind of deal you can get on a Triad if you really want the lows. But stick with a ten of somesort.

    the thing is im a rock bass player, and i use my fingers, so i need the picking kind of sound with out the pick(a pick goes against everything bass playing means in my oppinion).To put it simple i need tons of tone and a good amount of low.
