Very interesting what you guys have to say, and I seriously appreciate the input. But Ray Brown and Christian McBride both use 15"s and that is the kind of big deep sound that I'm looking for. As a point of reference, which player's sounds do you guys like? Do you think that you can get that same bottom with a 12"? The aguilar is rated down to 40hz, but that seems hard to believe. Also, how will a 12" (the aguilar perhaps, or bag end or raezer's edge) hold up as a complete rig for small rock gigs? Thanks.
