    Just in case you haven't seen my previous comments the Geezer Rig is designed to go easy on my back yet still be loud and sound great.
    Hartke 7000.........40lbs
    Bag end S15-d.....44lbs
    Bag end S15-d.....44lbs
    Carvin 210 wedge...47lbs

    First Impression was I couldn't believe how small these cabs were. (a good thing) Then I plugged everything in. I was used to 410's over a 1 18 cab. I couldn't believe the presence and definition the Bag ends had. I had heard that they had great low end and they did, but they had as much definition as my Ampeg 410 cab. I expected them to be a little muddy. NOT! when I added my carvin 210 wedge to the rig it was just that much better. 700 watts into two 15's and two 10's. Now I was able to make the bag end speakers fart when I cranked the Hartke amp and wanged on the low B string real hard but that is not something I normally do. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Congrats!

    I'm hoping to pick up the first of my planned pair of S15-Ds in the next week, so your report is welcome.

    you are probably right. I normally use a compressor and I wasn't at the time. The Hartke doesn'thave a clip or overload light for the pre amp and I'm wonder if I didn't overload the pre amp.
