very versitile enclosure. has a much better frequency response than most cabinets with 10" speakers that i have heard. it handles the low end much better. most 4 10's i have tried dont do a very good job of producing sounds that you can feel as well as hear. not as good at reproducing extreme lows as an 18 but as good as or atleast near that of many single 15" speaker cabinets (better than some). as with many 10" enclosures it accentuates the mids slightly, making it easy to create a growly agressive tone, not that it cant be used for a more subtle tone. its extended low end is tight and not floppy or muddy sounding at all. articulates the low B string very well. from the first time i heard it, it has set the standard by which i judge all other cabinets by. it doesn't have the power handling of an 810 cab but i feel the sound quality is significantly better. i plan on buying a second one for my stage rig in the near future.

I've got the 4x10 hlf right now. I'm in a band that plays regular shows. I will be running it through the svt 4 pro.

I'm looking for a tone with full, tight, punchy sounding lows. Yet, still versatile for different types of playing styles. Switching between slap, finger style and some tapping.

My debate is between a 15' and an 18' to combine with my 4x10.
The 4x10 runs at 4 ohms, and same with the 18'. My quam is that the 15' is at 8 ohms.

If i go with the 18, i may be lacking the mids i need to cut through the mix.
If i was running out of the svt 4 pro, would i be able to run the 4x10 at 4 ohms, while running the 15 at 8 ohms?
