Guitar rig half stack... 4x12...
Bass rig half stack.... 4x10...
Obviously there is good reason, what is that reason?
My guess is because of distortion levels
I don't know, no idea, so I'm just gonna guess:
Maybe guitars naturally need low end help, so they get a 12" speaker?
Maybe bass naturally needs a tamer low end and tighter response, so they get a 10" speaker?
i think you're onto something... but then wth with the 1x15!?!?!? AH! madness
4-10's have more surface area than an 18 (wrong.. make that 15
Add the relative depth of these cabs need for the range they work in -even for 4-10's the bass is deeper then the guit cabs..
I.e.. A 4-12 bass cab would be a frickin beast cart around..?
I always thought the silliest config'?.. was those early bi-amped rigs back about 15 20 years ago -the highs went to the 4-10 ..and the poor little 15 got the subs

i would find it hard to believe that professionals would sacrifice tonality and quality and power because it would add 30 pounds to your rig.. especially compared to the standard 8x10
Does this in anyway explain the 4 ft. speaker in Back to the Future?
