Is there any reason you never see combos or cabs with a bass speaker and a guitar speaker? They share a hugely overlapping range of frequencies.

Hi,
It has been tried before by some mfgs.,for the very reasons you named,use one speaker for
the low frequencies and another for the mids
and highs.Amplifier mfgs make their money
by addressing a specific group,so if they made
a amplifier/cabinet that works for the guitarist
and the bassist,then they have eliminated two
huge cash cows,a big no no in the corporate
world.
There are some examples where the combination
has worked,but mainly in sound reinforcement,
Mackie,Peavey have used low freq. and high freq.
drivers in their cabinets,with great success.
Well,I hope this helps some,it's really,just killing
two birds with one stone,and that makes the mfgs. less, thanks.
