    2x10 and 1x15 (Ampeg Classic Cabs) I love the sound of both cabs together and If I'm playing at a smaller club I can just take the 2x10 and my head...

    One 4x10 on most gigs, two 4x10's for the larger stages. PA support always . . .

    1x15 (Basson)
    4x10 (Hartke)
    2x10 (Acme)
    2x10 (X-audio) or 1x12(no name) and Legion Sound 2x10
    I've never used this setup, except at home. Usually, I use
    the Hartke 4.5 XL or an X-Audio 2x10 with a Trace Elliot AH-300 head, but if the need arise, I'm covered.
     
  6. Sold my avatar 2x10 for their 4x10
     
  7. Ive got the Avatar 212 and she sounds great all by her lonesome but Im planning on adding a 210 to give her some company.

  11. No thing for 2 1x15's?? They're 2 yorkvilles one has a 2 space rack cause it used to be a combo so i put the sm-400 in there. They're damn loud with my swr sm-400, I play metallica rage against the machine black sabbath and some other stuff like that. It's perfect for me right now.

    One cab for all venues?

    Yes.
    Bergantino HT322.
    Has 1x12, 2x10, & 1xHF driver.

    Deep, smooth, fairly articulate, sweet treble, and always very musical sounding.

    It can handle any quasi-reasonable volume level (I haven't played any stadium gigs with it, but I have a very good DI out, so that's covered), any musical genre, any playing style.

    Just say "Yes" (actually I don't recommend buying anything blindly, but I highly recommend to anyone to check them out).

    P.S. I believe that two HT210 would be really exceptional as well.
     
  14. I've just recently switched from 4x10 to 2x12. Same volume, better tone, less weight.

    I play a Gallien-Krueger 400RB-III 2x10 Combo amp. May not seem like much, but these are your hercules midget amps. I'm hopeing to soon add on a GK 4x10 cabinet.

    P.S. If anyone can teach me how to put a pic up...I will.
     
  17. none of the above I have 2 1-15" mesa cabs

    2x12 and 8x10. I play metal so sheer volume is a must.

    Mesa Boogie 2X15 Diesel
    +
    Cerwin-Vega B36 MF (in 1 cab, 18" folded horn + 12" front loaded, original 12" replaced w/ 400 Watt Carvin)

    Hard rock/old school metal type music

    The Mesa is a very loud cabinet, strong mids, the CV not so loud but it is felt, the 12 adds high end. Haven't had my 400+ above 3 with this setup, and 3 is too loud.
