    At the studio where my band practices, they've got a couple of old-ish Marshall 2x15s, which have turned out to be very versatile, even though I'm used to 4x10s. Not small/light though.

    I quite like my SVT 15e. Old school, fat and round.

    You may also want to consider cabs with a tweeter that can be dialed both on or off - if the mood strikes. Best of both worlds.

    If you want to save some cash---order Some Eminence Delta 15" Drivers online.
    Then go to Home Depot and get some Pink Panther stuff and some gloves and a mask.
    Then order some 15" Ported Bass cabs from Lopo Line

    Put it all together at home-voila.

    Cost is about 100 for the driver 200 bux for the cab
    Pink panther stuff--I dont know, the dad had some around his shed
    Mask gloves--10 bucks max.

    This is what I did, X2 and I am having a blast with my setup--easy to carry...add casters=easy to roll, man.

    All parts made in the USA too! +100 for patriotism. :bassist:

    Good Luck

    15/6 is the only clear answer here.

    That said, the only other thing I'd consider as a standalone 15 would be a Mesa Powerhouse 115, or a home built 3 cubic foot box with a Kappalite 3015 in it. :)

    In the good ole days I liked the sound of a JBL E-130. It has an extended range (compared to E-140). The marketing hype claims 50Hz-6kHz.
