    I have a trace elliot 2 x 10 300 watt combo amp. Im looking to add another 4x10 below it. I was looking at the trace 4x10 but there $1000. Thats way over my budget considering that i paid 175 for the amp itself. What would be a good 4x10 to toss under it and still get that great trace sound?
  2. If you want a 410

    I would however recommend a 15 for that setup. Trace designed it to work like that. 2x10 and a 15 together. 249.99 299.99 (This is the new cabs)

    The reason the 410 isn't good idea you would in theory be splitting half the wattage into the 410 and half into the 210, that 410 will sound thin and not as loud. However, the 15 is rated lower and can keep up with the 210.

    If you can find one, which it is pretty hard, get an 1153 Compact 15. Would be a perfect match. The one above for 299 is pretty darn close.

    I guess that makes sense. Thanks for your help
  4. Now if you wanted to skip Trace altogether, you could go Avatar and have Dave put some green tolex on for you.

    I have a 212 that sounds killer with my Trace head.

    You could throw another 2x10 or 2x12 or 1x12 under that head all with decent results.

    If it were me I would go for a 2x10 or a 1x12 to put under it. The Avatars are only about 1/8 inch difference in size if I remember correctly so stacking isn't an issue.

    I think a 1x12 at 8ohm rated at 250 watts would be an absolute perfect match. About 320 bucks new, shipped. If you wanted carpet slightly cheaper.


    or an 8ohm rated 2x12.

    +1 on a 115, instead, or a 212. Anything BUT a 410.

    Would a 2x12 be louder or sounder better than a 1x12?
  7. Yes, but it is also twice the size. You could really get any brand of 212 but I wouldn't get anything rated higher than 500 watts RMS so you can push the speakers.

    As I stated a I use a 4ohm version 212 Avatar with my Trace Elliot head that is rated 280 watts with a 560 watt peak and I can keep up with a loud drummer.

    If you added the 15 or the 212 you should achieve the same results, add the 212 and it will be worthy of just about any gig. I know a pro that used that combo you have and a Trace 15 and never needed anything else.
