    I'm currently playing an Acoustic B200 head through the matching 4x10 cabinet. My friend wants me to indefinitely borrow his original Sunn 2x15 cabinet - he can't play anymore due to tinnitus. I'm wary of using up all 4 ohms my amp can handle on the bulky beast and not having the high end definition I enjoy with the 4 10's. I have an Eden head that needs to be refurbed and I think the Sunn plus a 4x10 will work with that. Any opinions? Btw, I'm playing a Fender Blacktop P-bass (passive).

    Nothing to fear. If the cabs free try it! Its probably loaded with jbl speakers that r very efficient so don't clobber them with power. Totally not needed But these r great speakers You will be surprised.
     
  3. Borrow it and try it. I would love to have one. I am certain the 215 and 410 together on the same amp will do you no good and probably not sound as good as either by themselves.

    It really depends on what 2x15 cab your talking about. I have a 200s cab that has mids/highs for days.
     
  5. My Sunn 2x15 was loaded with the more common Sunn-labelled transducers, those drivers were not very good IMHO.

    I got more highs from my 2x15 rig than my 8x10 rig. Don't assume because it has 15s it will be muddy and be bass oriented.

    I have a Sunn 2x15 with JLB 140F in it.

    Compared to my Ampeg HE410, it has less bass and more mids (it still has enough bass to sound awesome with a B string) and it sound amazing on both bass and guitar.

    Try it.
     
  8. Which Sunn 2x15? They made quite a few different ones. If it's a 200S or 2000S, it won't be lack in highs at all, really.
     
  9. Hey, if you don't want it i'll gladly take it.
