Hey, I think i've finally made up my mind and i'll be getting an Ashdown MAG 300 combo in a few weeks. Unfortunately money is an issue and i don't think i can afford a head and cab. I'm also in Australia so no avatar for me! Also the ashdown cabs/speakers seem to have decent reviews and i would imagine they would compare favourably to the behringer and hartke offerings that would be similarly priced here in Oz. Down the track i plan to get an extension cab too if that matters. Now the decision i have to make is, do i go for the 1x15, the 2x10 or (unlikely that i'll be able to afford it) the 4x10. I guess the real choice is between the 2x10 and 1x15 since i think the 4x10 will be out of my price range. What are the pros and cons of the two formats? Doing a search it seems that the 1x15's have more bass but less presence and the 2x10 are the opposite(obviously). As i said above i plan to get an extension cab but that may not be for a while. As a last thought, a guy at a guitar store told me that a 1x15 would be louder since it moves more air than a 2x10, is this true?
