    Hey TBers, I am getting back into playing after a long hiatus. I have an SVP Pro pre into a QSC 1450, so I have enough power at my disposal. Looking to get an Eden WT300 The Traveler (not the Time Traveler, pre that) for smaller the coffee houses and whatnots. I do not have a cab at the moment and trying to decide is driving me nuts.

    I am buying used to save some coin, and need something that is efficient at low volumes and can cut through when it gets loud. 410 is to big for most small gigs I realize. So........

    ...... the $64 question.
    1. Play whatever style
    2. Portability is obvious. Not lugging an 8x10.
    3. Covers the lows (at least 40Hz), mids are NOT scooped, and I can careless about tweeters. I don't like them.
    4. Would like a high sensitivity 99 or greater for sure.

    I am thinking Eden 210XLT though its only 48Hz. It has a 103db rating and would match the head well. the Eden 112 Neo is very appealing but not sure how loud there are.

    Local GC has a Warwick 410 that seems to be efficient, but sounds a bit scooped to me. My eden head isn't here yet so hard to test that.

    In everyone's humble option, best fit for this would be.......
    May I be excused, my brain is full?.......

    I have no direct experience with the cabs you mentioned, but I think you should first get your eden head, and than try that cabs.
    FWIW, I believe scooped cabs are wrong way to go. Better to have flat response cab, and if needed - scoop with your preamp eq.

    If you want something with a low mid bump Markbass is a good choice, far from scooped mids.

    Sage advise, but most of the cabs I am looking at will most likely be Ebay. Hence the asking opinion of TBer's and there useage and mileage.
    As per scooped cabs I agree 100%. I mentioned that cab as it was here locally and when my head arrives I could check that out. It just seemed like it was scooped, but I could be wrong.
    It had some balls thats for sure. I thought they marketed to metal, nu-metal sound, but not sure. It sounded like it.

    I will look into the Markbass stuff.
    Thanks guys.

    I love my epifani series 2 ul310. Very light, clear at low volumes, cut perfectly at the last outdoor gig with no FOH support :) I'm a happy camper.

    The swr 410 Goliath is a good choice super light and lots of headroom. That Eden will easily push it to its limits.

    I have a dc210 its great if you have pa support in larger venues. Edens also have slr ot so you can connect to any venues pa.

    The 210s are very loud for small venues.
