    how big of a difference is there? i'd be running a Bass 350 and a Goliath Jr in addition.

    i need volume, but i need tone first, and i don't want to pay a lot more for the triad or SOB when the difference is negligable.

    thanks

    I own an SOB and I really like it-it's very quick and clear sounding, and it's pretty portable (fits in the backseat of my 2-door). A friend has the Triad and it sounds really smooth and even, but it's rather heavy and large and it's not appreciably louder than the SOB, although its 4 ohm impedance will pull more wattage out of yr amp than the 8 ohm SOB. I tried the WM-15 and didn't find it to be in the same class as the other two cabs; it's noticeably more rough and honky-sounding. Usually if you try to save a few bucks instead of going for the better stuff you end up regretting it in the long run.
