So I've just been thinking, at the moment I own an Ashdown Mag (the 210 combo) and I always thought I'll just get the 15" extension cab to get the full wattage.

However, I understand that more speakers can also have a large effect on your volume so I thought of getting the 410 extension cab to add onto it (it's 8 ohms, 350 watts handling so it could technically work)

This would give me a 6x10 cab (which I don't think is too common). I'm aware I may be sacrificing low end clarity but it's not too different from say an 8x10.

What are some of your opinions on this? Would you get the 4x10 or the 1x15?? Is there any reason why it's a bad idea? Is it even worth running 300 watts through a 6x10?

Since it might be a little unorthadox I thought I'd ask.

I'd go with the 15". They still push a lot of air.

And just so you know, Warwick do a 6 x 10" cab with a tweeter.

I read somewhere that due to the nature of 15 inch speakers, they require more power to reach the same volume as a 10 inch speaker per say.

So if you get the 4x10, it'll sound louder at the same output but it won't have the low end tonal qualities of the 15.

Your call but tbh, you'll be getting upto 300W so I doubt volume is a matter.

I really dont think it takes more power to run a 15", i think it is about projection of the sound.

What are your goals on getting the new cab? What do you think you will get by getting a new cab?

The full wattage of the head mostly, I thought with a 410 the sound would be more projected because of the increase in speakers. gm jack made a good point though, the 15 is still going to be pushing alot of air.

It was just a thought, and possibly slightly better than getting the 15, although I doubt it would cover the extra £70 for the 410...hmmm

More 10" speakers will provide more punch, as it will accent your mids more.

A 15" will round out your tone, and give you a nice heavy low end.

Ampeg do too, and I think Mesa might.

I thought Ampeg only did an 810?

Yessir, they both do.

TS: I'd personally go with the 1x15", but that's my taste. Ask mountaindew88 what he thinks of his 6x10". You'd be much better off with a 2 or 4x12" but those are harder to find and generally more expensive.

Ampeg does a six ten, bergantino does, schroeder does, a lot of very popular cab makers do.

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.
