    So I'm beginning this thread by saying that I purchased a Dr. Bass 1260 used and fell in love. Needless to say, it's awfully hard to expand one's rig when a company is no longer producing (at least for now...) and they are hard to come by used.

    I currently am using a Markbass LMII with the 1260... great, light combo. However, to move more air at potential upcoming gigs and in the future, I want to expand with another cabinet.

    Now, I know you should try your best to match speaker drivers, etc. However, I cannot even find out what driver is used in the 40-ish pound Dr Bass 1260...

    I actually am looking into a 1 15 for the bottom, in particular an Epifani 1 15 listed here on TB. Do you think that these cabinets would match up okay/sound good? Or would there be issues?

    Both cabinets are 8 ohms, by the way.

    No one can reliably predict the result of mixing any two cabs. Your best bet is to take your rig to a well stocked store and try it with other cabs to be sure that the result is what you're looking for.
