    I have the Rumble 500 combo and I am very happy with it. Very nice sound, lightweight.
    I only play small gigs so it is more than enough but I also play in a stoner rock project with a guitarist with face-melting fuzz. So I want a cab to pair it with. When I play my usual gig or practice I will only carry my 16kg combo and for the heavy stuff I'll just have the extra cab waiting in our rehearsal place.

    There are 4 Rumble Cab choices (my combo already has 2x10 in it):
    1x15 > 2x10 + 1x15 very interesting sound.....
    2x10 > sums to 4x10
    4x10 > sums to 6x10

    Thoughts please. If you already have a combination please explain.

    The 210 cabinet of course. No need to mix driver sizes there. While the 210+115 combination might sound a bit different, the 210+210 is by far the ultimate solution. Use effect pedals or EQ from your bass or your amp to tweak the sound if needed. :)

    I am currently using my Rumble 500 with a Traynor 115, works quite well. I only ever plug the 115 in if I have no PA support and the gig is big enough. Just raising the 500 up a couple feet makes it quite a bit louder.

    I'm waiting on my 2x10 to arrive to pair with my 500 Combo, so that's what I'm thinking.
