  1. I was just reading a post that was talking about 4x10's vs. 2x15's and i had no clue what any of it meant, can someone just quickly explain it to me please?
  2. A 4x10 is a speaker cabinet with four 10 inch speakers. A 2x15 is a cab with two 15 inch speakers. An 8x12 would have eight 12 inch speakers. And so on.

    I think that was the one dissing everyone who used 10's because they were small and sissies used them or words to that effect.

    And 15's have more bottom end and are somehow more "manly" speakers.

    I guess it was closed and for good reason as it was flame bait.

    Obviously, the thread starter had never experienced the devastation of some good 10's with a lot of juice going through `em. Size isn't as important as quality, (isn't that what women hear a lot?).
