Why are 10 inch speakers common for basses, but 12 inch speakers common for guitars?
I've been using 12" for bass for 20 years (weekend warrior through a lot of it)... just bought my first cabinet with a 10" in it this summer... but it also has a 12"
Actually, many bass players have moved or are moving to 12" speakers. I dumped my 4X10 for a Bergantino HT112. I gave up over 40 pounds in weight and have a very nice full sounding cab. Mayb enot quite as loud and it might be missing just a little rumble, but for my needs, a good trade. If I really needed it, all I'd have to do is add another 1X12 and I'd be set.
Actually, the preference goes in cycles through the years: 10s, 12s, 15s, 18s.
Why? Humans are funny.
