    I've been playing bass about 15 years or so, and have always played through two 15s - currently two Black Widows, to be precise... They sound pretty good to my ears, but I felt I was somehow missing something - so, I tried a 410 in a local music store, and liked what I heard... It was an old 410TX that was rode hard and put away wet, and it still didn't sound bad... I bought a much newer(and supposidly in much better condition) 410TXV, and should be getting it in next week... I also spent another $25 to get a 1 year warranty on it, so if anything isn't right, they'll fix it... I'm thinking this cab will rock with one, or both of my 15s...

    Anyways, world of 10s, here I come!!!

    yep, im in the same boat as you... only i've only been playing for 1/3 the time that you have...

    I always thought the bigger the speaker, the bigger the sound. That was before i took tone into serious consideration. So now im planning on getting a 4x10 cab with my new Genz Benz GBE400. :hyper:
  3. The ultimate is a 4X10 with a 1X15 ;)

    Now there's definition and rattle!

    why not a 12" loaded cab? might be the best of both worlds for you.

    I'd have to play one before taking that plunge - I'm not exactly rolling in the dough, if you know what I mean... I suspect that I might be pretty happy with the 410 and either one, or both of my 15s - but would be willing to try some 12s, if the opportunity arose...

    That's what I hear - I suspect it'll work out pretty well for me...

  7. After playing numerous 410 and 810 cabs, I have decided that my personal taste needs something else to accompany the tens... 12s or a 15?

    The 10s are great for articulation and punch, but I like the low mids of the bigger speakers (yes, I know I am generalizing here...) combined with the 10s. I used to play 2 15s, but it also felt like it was missing something to me...

    I haven't tried 12s yet, but have ordered a schroeder 310212, so I guess I'll wait and see...
