    This a poll strictly for demographic purposes, not to help me decide what to do (i already know thanks - :p ), nor to argue ad infinitem about why one size rocks and another size sucks. I'm just curious to see how popular each size is at the current time.

    Check all sizes that apply, and check if you use any sort of tweeter as well. If your cabinet(s) have multiple speakers of different sizes, (like a 15+10+horn tweeter), check each size. Please just put down what you currently use, not what you have used in the past, or what you are considering getting or would like to use. If you're using a size i havent listed, check other and elaborate.

    Right now I'm using a 15, a 12, and a 2x10. Sometimes i use one, sometimes i pair them up (i've used each possible combination), and sometimes i bring all three. Personally, i have found something to like about every size driver i've encountered, and if i had the cash, i'd own as many cabinets as tombolus :p

    I enjoy variety. My hi-fi rig consists of tens, sometimes in conjunction with a single 15", which are all housed in cabinets that are ported and have tweeters. My vintage rig is a sealed, tweeterless 6x10".

    This is enough for me. The only speaker GAS I have is for an Epi 410 ultralight, but because it would be for my back and not my ears, the benefit would not outweigh the cost (my back isn't *that* bad).

    i hear ya. although i eventually want to get a bag end coax 15 to go with my non coax 15 and 12 (i've heard all 3 together and it's nice................, i really would love one or two eip 310ULs. The 410 is cool too, but apart from the awesome sound, the diminutive size and weight of the 310UL is just crazy. I'd say those are the only 2 speakers i actually intend to purchase sometime in the future. I'm pretty sure i could juggle 3 epi 310ULs. :D

    I use 10's. I believe I'm gonna stick to this speaker size, since it perfectly fits my needs.

    I like tens and twelves. My BAM combo at church is 2x10+tweeter.

    My gigging cab is a Schroeder 1210. 12+10+tweeter, and the most musical sounding tweeter I have heard in a bass cabinet.

    Seriously, I use an Epi 410 UL, and apart from being able to carry it on one hand, my amp in the other and a bass on my back, it sounds friggin awesome!!! You will do both your ears and back a favour by getting one. And the tweeter! Ohhhhh the tweeter... fantastic tweeter.
  16. Mostly tens although I have a pair of Avatar CB112s that I used quite a bit. I added some large horns to them and turned them inte PA cabinets(which they work great for with subs)but still use them for bass once in a while and love them.

    My main cabinet is an Avatar NEO 410 with a Selenium horn insted of the Foster.Tonight's my first gig with the new horn installed,I've used it a couple of times with the old horn and it worked allright but I had to keep the horn almost off.My other cabinet is a Eden 210XLT and it's great.Both these cabs with tens have plenty of low end for me.

    I don't normally like 10's, but I like the 10's in my acme. If weight and availability weren't issues, I'd use an acoustic 360. If money wasn't an issue, I'd use a whappo jr.
