    i was playing around on a keyboard yesterday and saw that some notes the lowest D for example were incredibly deep; the speakers were on the keyboard and couldnt have been larger than 5-6 inches each (2 of them)
    ive never heard anything this deep come out of my bass or any bass ive tried, but i want that depth!!!!!!!!
    any explanation why a 240 watt amp running through 4X10 and 1X15 cannot compete with a 6 inch speaker?!

    I am sure that most 5" speakers will play any note you like if you don't need a whole lot of volume. for example, I get a nice clean low B on my quantum amp. This is a 12w amp rated through a 4 ohm speaker, I am using a 8 ohm 6.5" speaker. So I am getting maybe 6w when I push it... but at 3 or 4 watts, the amp puts out great lows. :D
