    Okay.
    I'm a six-string bassist looking for a cheap, versatile rig that would be loud enough to gig with. Here are my options:

    One 212 cab and one 210

    One 112 and a 410

    A 112 and 210

    Plain old 410.

    You see, I value my low end output, but not enough to dedicate an entire rig to a few huge speakers. I plan on spending a lot of time between the 5th and 15th frets.

    I plan on buying Avatar.

    So which set-up would suit my six stringed needs?

    EDIT: 610?

    I would vote for one 212 and one 210. Killer together, adequate alone (especially the 212). $0.02

    A 112 w/ a 410 would be very unbalanced
    A 410 by itself would be good, but heavy

    I would go 112 and 210 if you are going to have a 500 or less watt head, or 2 -112's would be good also.
    If you are going w/ more than 500 watts and play w/ a very loud band, then go 212 and 210

    thank both of you for your opinions.

    Right now I'm leaning towards the 212 and 210. That way, I can start with the 212 and my head and work my way up to those extra two speakers.

    Any other suggestions?

    I'd go either all 212 or all 210. I did a mixed rig for a little while and it was good, but when you have all the same drivers in the same cabs, I think it makes for a bigger sound.

    I use two 2-10 Avatars stacked vertically - NICE!

    It sounds like a much bigger rig than it is stacked this way.

    I am starting to repeat myself alot...:rolleyes:

    If your head goes to 2 ohms, then a 4 ohm 212 and an 8 ohm 112 will give balance and modularity. If both cabs must be 8 ohm I'd go 115 and 210

    How about a 112 and a 115? Avatar 115s can be found used.

    This modular thing can get your head spinning.
