    Well, to get optimal seperation and stereo sound you should go with a bass preamp setup with L/R and mono outputs. Use the Monorual output for lower frequencies/Subfrequencies less than 160 hz. or so. The L/R outputs can be routed to dedicated effects or amps that will feed your Left side and Right side SWR cabs with higher frequencies. The problem with low frequencies is that they seems nondirection, even more so as the distance from the source is increased. I suggest using a preamp that has a ping-pong effect so that when you hit your strings the sound will automatically shift from your left to right or vice versa. Hope this helps.

    Here is your best bet. Call Jorg Schroeder, he has tested his cabs with every head he could get his hands on and knows how they react with one another. He would be happy to give you recomendations as far as what cab would suit your style the best. He might recomend one cab or two, give him a call before you go any further. :eyebrow:
