  2. Lewi,

    What amp are you using/considering, and what type of stuff do you play? A 4 x 10 with a 1 x 15 will give you the full range of sounds from deep lows to tinkleing highs. You can get any sound you want from a set up such as this. Its not the cab that colours your sound, it's the EQ you dial in via your amp & guitar. You obviously have no budget concerns if you are considering SWR, which is great gear. You can pick up some cheap but still good Trace Elliot cabs at the moment, I have used a Trace set up of 4 x 10 x 1 x 15 in the past with no problems. EBS do a 4 x `10 cab & a range of 1 x 15 cabs but they are expensive. Check out mail order companies such as Coda Music or Flying Pig or Academy of Sound. ( All advertise in UK Music mags). Your best bet really is to get to a decent dealership, take your amp & guitar & try all the different makes of cab, and let your ears tell you which one you prefer. You live in the UK, you can't be that far from a major town with a decent music shop. You are the only one who can decide what is best for you!
