    I have asked a few times.....are there any preamps that do such a thing? being able to fully EQ the 1x15 and seperately EQ the 2X12? If not what rack gear could I use for an EQ? any help is appreciated...

    It might help to know what type of basses you're using. Also, what amp are you running the cabs with? If you have decent sounding intruments you really shouldn't have to EQ all that much, if at all. Are you running the cabs full-range or biamping?

    Some preamps let you run different "clean" and "dirty" signals out the L and R outputs. You might (depending on the model of preamp) be able to have each signal have a different EQ. Failing this you could run each side into a seperate external EQ device to shape the tone individually. From their it would be simple to run into two seperate inputs on a stero power amp, then drive each speaker independently in stereo.
