    I already have eden 212xlt as standalone cab, but I need more bottom. So my question is: what to add? 15" or maybe 18"? And which cabs to use, I need something tight and deeeeep. What about aguilar gs115? How it goes with stingray?

    Well, it doesn't really matter which bass it's going with. Moreso the amp. What amp are you playing it through? I'm surprised the 212 isn't giving you enough low end. I know my GS412 can handle its own very well. If that doesn't do it for you, You could always go the route of the 15". Aguilar makes great cabs (I know), so I can only bet that the GS115 is a good cab. Again, what amp are you using?

    It's hafler p3000, about 400W bridged. Eden 2x12" is great for mids and low mids, but for some serious bottom I need 15", maybe I will need more power, too.

    a 15 or 18 may or may not help. try a couple out first. i run my mm5 through 6 10's and i have much bottom. when i run just through my 2x10, i find the bottom a bit lacking. but when i run through the 4x10, i find it to be plenty. ymmv...

    Is that mean that adding another 2x12" will solve the problem?
    Please, avoid things like "try first" 'cause I don't have much possibilities to do that:(

    i would think that adding another cab would solve your problem. whether you add a 15", an 18", another 2x12", etc, is your choice. but i think pushing more air is what you're looking for. i was merely stating that if you get a 15", it might not be what you're "looking for". same goes for whatever cab you decide on.

    I play two stingray 5's, through Aguilar 4x10 and 1x15 cabs and they sound great. I don't always use the 1x15 - I only add it when I need extra lows at loud volumes on larger stages.

    I wouldn't recommend using an 18" unless you need to throw bass long distances, like if you didn't run the bass through a PA and needed to fill the room yourself. 18's usually take more distance to "blossom" such that you won't hear much of it where you stand, but everyone farther back in the room will get slammed by it.
