Hartke LH100 and the same or different cabs

    So I traded my Hartke LH500 or the LH1000. I also order a Hartke AK410.
    If I like it, should I get another AK410 or add the Hartke AK115 to the setup? I could plug the 410 in to one side and the 115 in to the other and balance or I could bridge the amp and daisy chain the cabs in which case I might blow the 115. Maybe I should just get another 410.

    It's just I see lots of guys using the LH1000 with a 410 and a 115 and I don't understand why. Are they just running a cab in to each channel and not using the full power of the amp by bridging it?

    What is the reason that some guys have a 4x10 and 1x15 in the same setup?

    It is used because of the false idea that 10's are for punch, and 15's for lows. This is not true, and the pairing is very unbalanced. Both are full range cabs. The best pairing is always 2 of the same.
