    Just wondering what the general consensus around Eden EX cabs was?

    I saw a used EX210N4 and while I wasn't originally going for a 2x10", it's the right price, size and weight.

    One thing I am wondering though, ideally I would have liked to snag an 8 ohm rather than a 4 ohm version, because with the 4 ohm I can't run anything else. Would it be dangerous to limit myself to only one cab, let alone a relatively small 2x10 like this?

    Also the EX112 cab looked pretty neat.

    Anyone else have experience with these cabs?

    I'd love to hear someone's experience with the EX series. I never hear anything about them. I guess they're either kinda lame or an undiscovered treasure. No love here?

    I have the EX112 cab and I find it to be a very nice sounding cabinet. It won't compete with most 12's as far as volume or low end output, but for acoustic stuff, small gigs, or home practice it's pretty awesome.

    I think it's built well, it's extremely portable. The only thing that kind of sucks is that the 112 cab comes with one 1/4 input.

    If your amp is limited to 4Ω then a single 4Ω cab is all you can use. IMO a single 2x10 is insufficient to play a normal gig with - you'll need a pair. If your amp has twin output stages or can run at 2Ω then 4Ω cabinets will be fine. I bought 4Ω cabinets 'cos I intended to run them with a stereo power amp capable of 2Ω per channel. I just use a pair of my cabinets so 4Ω per channel.

    IMHO- 2x10 4Ω cabinet such as the Eden XLT or a MESA PH 210 8Ω, have handled 3000 Seat venues... Huge, fat and cutting... with or without PA... :cool:

    To each his own brother. I know I would never use a single 2x10 to gig with. I stack mine per my avatar and one takes the same stage room as two. There's safety in that. Maybe that's why I've never damaged a woofer, except by my own clumsiness, in fifty years of playing.

    Off topic but does your username imply you play a six string bass?

    I have the Eden EX110 and it is a great little cabinet for small
    gigs where space is limited. I use it with GK MB500 and it sounds
    excellent. It has great clarity and good low end response. I'm not a fan of tweeters/horns in bass cabinets and with this type of speaker design you don't need them. Pushing the cabinet at a
    fairly loud volume produced no "farting out sounds", although I haven't tried it with a 5 string yet. It is like a 12" cube and weighs nothing.

    I have an ex110 with the wtx 260 amp and it's a cool combination. It's not a wt series going into an D410XLT but it's light.

    Where did you see the ex210? I'm looking for a 4 ohm 210.

    I saw one for sale locally and tried it out. If you google ex210n* it comes up. It is listed on the Eden website, but I don't think you can get to it from the eden page, you need to google it instead.

    Anyone thought of running 3 x EX112 (vertical stack) from an Eden WT550 ?
    Amp goes to 2 ohms so 3 x 8 ohm cabs would be fine.

    Punchy little rig methinks and the vertical stack would be like the TC Electronic RS cabs stack
