how should you properly mix speakers? should you pick ones with 2 different sounds to blend things? for example, in this video they compare a k100 to a texas heat, and then show both together for a blended sound.

should that be done rather than getting 2 of the same speaker?

i actually have an opp to get a cab with a k100, and because people say it handles bass well but gives a scooped mid "metal" sound i fear it will be different. however, im wondering if that will give good bass tightness and treble punch and the other speaker can make up for the mids????

ouch that second speaker sounded pretty bad and then mixing them was awful.

well i assume if you want to mix two different speakers they probably should have the same wattage/ power rating

I didn't really like either. The first was all bass, no highs at all. The second was way too high on the mids and highs with no bass. But I agree completely that together they sounded aweful.

well k100s are pretty wlle known speakers. again they are popular with metal players becuase they actually have a tighter bass responce and scooped mids. kerry king im pretty sure uses all k100s.

im not a fan of the first one.

but again thats just an example for mixing speakers. im just asking for comments/knowledge

that video is poor example in combining sounds IMO. The Eminence Texas Heat is an American Voiced speaker as to the K100 more of a British voiced speaker, which IMO should not be mixed. A good success story on mixing two different speakers would be the Texas Heat and Swamp Thangs ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S13HkTmCAY )
