    Ok, I currently run an Ampeg SVT4PRO head into an Ampeg PR410HLF cabinet and i'm currently looking at getting an Ampeg BXT115HL4. Would that make a decent set up or should I get another PR410HLF cab?

    I'd suggest another PR410HLF

    If you have the means to transport two of the HLFs, and don't mind hauling them, then I say go for the second HLF. I use an SVT410HLF and I can't imagine having to haul a second one, I guess I'm just a pansy.

    I'm sort of wondering why you'd need a second one. I run this same setup and couldn't possibly need any more stage volume. If I did, the only thing I could think of doing is replacing the PR410 HLF with a more sensitive cabinet. If you replaced it with something like a Shroeder or an Accugroove, you'd be easily upping your volume level as much as adding a 2nd Ampeg cabinet, but you'd still only have to lug one cabinet. I know it's not much fun lugging my 128 lb PR410 HLF around. I can only imagine TWO.

    If you must though, I'd get the second 410. These things go so low and sound so good, the only companion for it is another like it. *edit* Keep in mind that they are not overly sensitive, and that you may need another power amp to really fully power a pair of them.
