    I have the D800 using headphones until the back ordered :nailbiting: (2) 1x15's arrive. I've always been married to that 2x15 feel and thick rich deep sound (to me). I fully expect to be more than thrilled and satisfied with the set up.

    That said, I wonder what would TB Subway users think would be the "tonal" polar opposite set up (1 amp head and two matching "made for" cabs) This is you at the equator of sound. Mesa to the north and "Blank" to the south. All dialed in at noon. Just the inherent tone.

    No good or bad here, just what fills in the blank for you and why. And do you have a polar opposite that you actually own and "go to" when needed?

    I'm trying to broaden my personal sound preferences and would like the gear input/tone feels from your personal experience.

    No ones answer matters but yours. :)

    Firstly, you won't be disappointed with the Subway 15. It's so deep, rich, and clear. I've never heard a cab like the Subway 115. I plan to add a second one in the future.

    As far as something that is tonally opposite, probably a GK. They have a lot of gank in the high mids and are very bright with a lighter bottom end.
