  1. Hello everyone,

    Which is louder, one 210 or two 110s of the same total volume?

    haha, sorry man it is too early. I would vote the 2 110s. Simply because you can position them better which may be percievably louder to your ears. Technicalities I do not know. Sorry.

    Same speakers? If so then....


    If different speakers, then there are other particulars that matter.

    Should not matter much.
    Like jimmybc91 says, you have more freedom in positioning the cabs to suit the playing situation which may result in hearing yourself more clearly.
    One other advantage is that in (most)210's the driver share one enclosure, it's allways better to give each driver it's own compartment(enclosure).

    210 are the best choice. 110 sit really low to the ground they are sometime hard to hear unless it's something like an Accugroove 110. Also both 10 and 210 have small form factors so it's best to go with the cab that offers the most flexibility.

    If running off the same amp I'd say the two 110's will be louder as you'll be running @ 4 ohms instead of one 210 @ 8 ohms.

    ... unless the 210 was also 4 ohms ... ;)

    ... which I would never recommend ...

    .. I used to use two 4 ohm Yamaha BBT110's when I had the 2 ohm capable Yamaha 500BBT head, and then just used a 'series' cable to run the two 110's @ 8 ohms when I used a 4 ohm (min)capable head ... then I found 210's that were lighter than the 110's were, that changed everything ... no need for 110's in my life anymore
