There are times when I want the type of low end that just makes you need to throw up. I like to feel it in my bones and have it be felt in other peoples' bones. However, while striving for that type of ungodly low, my 4x10 Mesa cab tends to fart out (ie: the excursion of the 10" speakers is not deep enough to reproduce the frequency). To compensate I got the Mesa 2x15. Am I wrong in thinking that the bass should be overpowering and vomit-inducing? Is there a 'magic curve' on the EQ that would give me that thick, absorbing bass without giving my speakers indigestion? Discuss... ps. I mostly play a Stingray 4 through a Mesa 400+. slap and fingerstyle.
