    What would be a better cab to match with a 1x18 cab, a SWR Goliath III or the SWR Triad? ATM I have a Madison 18 and 2x10, I wanna ditch the 2x10 to start and buy one of those two cabs and later replace the 18 with a SWR Big Ben.

    definitely go with the Goliath III. The Triad doesn't cut through too well, because it's tuned flat for the studio.

    Currently, I run through an SWR SM-400S amp into an Eden 410XLT, a Yorkville BassMaster 200 watt 1x15 combo, and a pair of JBL 18s for bigger shows. I just added the 410, and it makes a huge difference in hearing myself onstage.

    Plus, the 410 has greater handling (700 watts to 400 on the Triad) and 4 cones versus 2, which will allow you to turn up your bass and low mids a lot more.
