    Personally, one 1516B does it for me. That's the 15, 10, 2x6 and a horn in one cab. It serves my purposes for the most part.

    The Powerhouse 1000 is one of my favorite cabs of all time. Its great with a 400+.

    It depends on what line of Mesa cabs. In the Diesel/RR era, I'd go for either a single 2x15, or a 4x10/1x15, or a 4x10/Powerhouse Jr.

    I'm with you on this one. I'd prefer the Diesel/RR series, and I'd go with a single 2x15, pair of Powerhouse Jrs, or one of each.

    RR 2x15 + RR Powerhouse 10000.

    Failing that, RR Powerhouse 1000 + RR 1516.

    Those Powerhouse 1000s are freakin' brilliant cabs.
     
  7. I like the mini-refrigerator look of a 2x15. Quite frankly, I was a bit dissapointed that there wasn't a category for this config.

    410 + 115 = Win.... at least from my view.

    It's a good way to get the best of both worlds, if your looking for a diverse tone. The Powerhouse1000 will give you that, or you can seek out the cabs separately to spare your back the hell.

    Mesa's 15' are the best in the Biz, IMO. My buddy has two 2x15's with a 400+ and the result is earth shaking.
