    Wanting to add an extension cab to it...obviosuly EBS...tried all the different ones...and yes a 1x15 was the answer.....but...which on cause i lo0ove boo0oth

    The 15h....smaller cab...lotsa low end but more mid..
    15f ..bigger cab...less mid but more low end....

    personally I'd go for the 15f if by the specs you're telling me are true. I'd suspect you have enough mids and bright end out of your 4x10 I know I can get my 4x10 sounding quite bright, I'd get the deeper one if I was getting one (I'm currently using a EBS HD350 and EBS 4x10
     
  3. yeah very true...

    the 4x10 cab is amazin bright..almost to0o bright and biting on the top end.....when turned up full....but to me that doesnt matter means uve got plenty of head ro0om to play with..:) and the mid just kicks


    i guess the 15f is a good all rounder....and is only £80 more..tisnt a huge amount for a hell of a lot more bang for ur buck..... hmmmz....

    plus my setup would lo0ok so0o small agaisnt my gtr's 4x12,2x12,head setup... :p .......tis all about the rock image...:p...
     
  4. As a fellow owner of a Fafner/410 setup I would go for the smaller 15h cab. But mainly because of the smaller size. If size and weight is no issue then the 15f would be excellent. I wouldn't need the horn in the 15". The 410 is way bright enough.

    Good luck

    My choice would be the 15F. I own one now, and are saving for a EBS 4x10 to accompany it =) I believe that you get enough brightness from the 4x10, seems a little unneccesary to have a horn in both cabinets, my maybe that´s just me...
