Is there a huge difference between the Bag End S15D and S15XD?

    I know frequency response is wider on the S15XD, but hearing them both, is the S15X-D worth the $$?

    maybe. If you want that high end, then yes. IMO, the coaxial titanium compression driver tweeter in the x series cabs is one of the most natural and "non harsh" sounding tweets around. The crossover is a really good one too. It depends on the styles of music you're going to cover. I can get away with creative treble boosts for most styles with my s15 and s12, but i can't dupe the s15x sound and "zing" that only a tweet will give you. FWIW, the S15x is my most lusted for item.

    I haven't tried the S15D. I love my S15XD but wish that it had a tweeter attenuator knob like just about every other cab w/ a tweeter.
