Been wanting to post this since this past weekend but feared getting flamed! But I am in a i dont give a **** mood so here it goes!Went to a small show on sat it was a cowpunk hard country type thing think hank lll country stuff. But anyway noticed the bass player was playing electric instead of DB thought that was cool. Then noticed his cab thought it was just another 4x10 carvin with a peavey head. Kind of odd to see a country act with a 4x10 seems around here they favor single 15s but thought it was neat to see someone being differnt! He had a nice tone to his rig kinda muddy he played alot of root fith with some walking but rather nice! Any way after the show a buddy of mine interduced me to him and we started talking i commented on rig and asked why he used such a big cab being a 4x10 .I was looking for advice since i am so new but he kinda laughed at me and said it was a 1x18! I was cought off gaurd and we went over and i got to check out his gear and it was a 1x18. So later i checked on here about people using 1x18 standalone and wow strong dislike for doing so. Why? I have read and understand any size speaker can do anything so why so much dislike for a 1x18? Went to carvins site and it is the same size as the 4x10 but weighs less! And i think it was cheaper! so what is your take on 1x18 standalone? Just a note I am looking for a 110 or 112 this is just a wonder why type ?
