I'm not a huge fan of post-gibson takeover traces, they lack something (apart from weight) of the old greenbacks. If you want the trace sound you should go for something before 1998 or so. As far as the 2x15 goes, you'll probably only need a 1x15 but then again the 2x15 could sound good with it as well

try them out is all i can say

Gibson doesn't even own them anymore. Peavey does.

In my experience, Trace's cabs sound best with their heads, but again, that's just me. Try and find one of these cabs to test out with your current rig is all I can say.
But personally, I love Trace's stuff, especially when you have nothing between you and the amp.

Trace bass amplifiers are among the best solid state amps you can get. The sound is fantastic, they can give you a variety of tones, and that green glowing control panel looks great on stage. They are also very loud when used with Trace cabinets. I don't know about when they are used with a different manufacturer's cabinet.

I own a Trace, a GP7SM 200, which has a 1x15, and i also have a 4x10 that i play through sometimes, and i have to say that my 1x15 won't drowned out your 10's by too much, as long as you eq your head to give yourself just a slight boost in highs, and maybe a cut in bass.

Also, what tone are you looking for? Because 15's can't always give you really really punchy tones.

I got an old Trace 1110 4x10 combo. It's only rated at 110 watts, but it's louder than it should be. I love it to death. It was easily the best $500 I ever spent. I've played on some other Traces and they all sound good. They are easily the best solid state amps you can get.
