    depends on how heavy they are..hi-hats arent made for crashing..but maybe the bottom one would work.

    It depends on how it sounds, plain and simple. If it sounds good, you can use anything!

    I imagine the top would sound better for crashing. As hi-hats typically aren't very large in diameter the thinner of the 2 would produce a better sound. I think the bottom, being so thick, would produce a sound closer to that of a trash can. But I could be wrong.
