    pretty much anything that's popular and on the radio, but not pop/top40 style cheese (RATM, Staind, 311, Sublime, STP, Green Day, etc)
     
  5. Personally I've always wanted to run a 6x10 side by side with a 2x15. I think that would be amazing!! You wouldn't even know my band had a guitar player!!!

    I run a 4 x 10 with HF horn and a 1 x 15. It always seemed to have worked for me when playing rock!!!:)
     
  8. I don't think any of the 6x10's made are 8 ohm cabs... you'd have to do the 6x10 plus a 2x15 (or 4 ohm 1x15).

    6x10+1x18

    I had a good friend run that through an Ampeg SVT-4PRO. It was the singular realization of what a rock setup should be.

    I can't imagine running more than 6x10. If you truly need more than that, I'd suggest 8x10, or 2x4x10 as lpbassics said!
