    Im really looking for some solid advice for a "Buy one time and dont look back" scenario.

    Love to hear from those who have 2 x SL112 cabs or DB410 or Rumble410

    I have a Tone Hammer 500 and an SL112. I am playing out 1-2 times a month and I think the 12" cab is great for rehearsals but not sure about my 150-350 capacity venues(Clubs!!).

    Should I go for a 410 cab and use that for live gigs or just get another SL112?

    Few Notes: I have some shoulder issues but dont mind 60-70 LBS of weight. I could just leave it in the garage and roll it to the van for the gigs...not a huge issue.

    I just want to be able to have enough power and hear my self(Dont we all).

    Playing Nu-Jazz,R&B/Raggae

    410 Consideration: (I choose these because of the vintage look/brand/user reviews)
    Rumble 410
    USED DB410 (I know its a heavy box) ugh....

    ^Has anyone compared the above^

    Price difference aside , would that Rumble 410 give me more punch than these specific 2 x12? I am afraid to get lost in the mud of 2x12's. Maybe Im wrong...HELP!

    Thank you!

    I have a TH-350 and use it with a 4 ohm 2x12 (GK 212MBE) and it has kept up with two cranked non-master 100w half stack gui**** amps. I've also used it outdoors with a more sane band at a venue that can hold ~1000 no prob. I supplied it a backline at a two day multiband benefit a month ago, ~350 cap club and it easily outpowered the PA. At one point I was outside and the bass was stoopid loud so I went to see what the soundguy thought he was doing - the fader was completely off <eek>.

    In other words, I'm saying two modern 12's should be all you'll ever need.

    Too much hip thrust
    I'd get the second 1x12.

    If I didnt own two 4x10's I would be rocking the 2 1x12 rig. I own a 1x12 and use it all of the time. As it is I lug a 4x10 when I need the extra but I'd rather be modular.
