one simple guitar cab, for guitar
and adding exstra woofer cab, maybe with built-in power amp, whenever needed
it gives you more and better options, for whatever job you have

Would it make more sense to get a 4x10 cab with a freq range of 45hz to 5khz?

Is the Bassman Reissue still reguarded as a decent bass amp? I know they have changed the classification as its typically used for guitar these days.

You can probably get better for bass guitar: the speakers are in an open-back enclosure, so you won't get much in the way of low end out of it.

I use a sealed 4x10 cabinet and a 300w Laney amp for both guitar and bass. One of the speakers is a dual-cone one that extends out to ~15kHz, making it usable as a half-decent PA system.
Its great for band practice as I put the mixing desk in the fx loop and then iPod, mics, even electric drum kits into the mixer.

Chris's solution sounds good, or for portability, two 10s and a tweeter.

This assumes you don't need a guitar speaker if you can get a good sound going direct, and that you'll be mic'd outdoors.

then I would suggest two 10s, and yet another 10" for the 'tweeter job'....and the upper 10, you can make that one open back, if you wish

Or maybe a 6", like the Eminence Alpha 6A.

That raises the question, Mr. Thompson, what sort of amp are you using? Tube, or solid state?

Good idea, especially for the acoustic guitar.
