    I have a question. I have a 4x10 cab and it is listed (in the brochure) with a frequencie response of 40 to 15khz (I think)
    I want to buy an other cab, of the same brand. I was thinking of a 15 incher but it has the same frequencie response. Does this mean it will have the same power in the lows as the 410 or is a 15 better?? I mean, should i buy the 15 or another 410??
    Can you help me??

    Each string (or note) has it's own frequency.
    B=30.868 Hz
    E=41.203 Hz
    D=73.416 Hz
    G=97.999 Hz
    So, if you play a 4 string bass, you'll be OK with your cab.
    However, if you play a 5 string' you would be better of with a cab with a freq. responce of 30 Hz.(not absolutely nessary, but it helps)
    As for your second (future) cab, it's just a matter of what sounds best to you.

    A simple frequency response figure like that tells you next to nothing about how the cab is going to sound, and it's often more of something to sell the cab to people that rely on specs. I bet the 15 incher is going to have more lower-frequency emphasis than the 4x10.
