    Does anyone mix different brands of speaker cabinets in their rig? For example, an Eden cabinet with one from SWR?

    If so, why? How do you handle stacking when the cabs are different dimensions?
     
  2. I bi-amp with JBL highs and Rockford lows. You have to watch the phasing so all drivers move in the same direction for a given signal.

    Sometimes I use my Genz Benz 2-12 with my Bag End 15.

    I do it when I am playing a larger venue and/or when I can expect no PA support. They have matched efficency ratings so the sound is pretty even.

    I just stack the cabs up and put my amp on top. Looks a little strange I suppose, but whatever. I am more concerned with sound over looks.
