I own one of these speakers and have several guitar amps and cabinets that I have tried it with. However, I have never tried this for bass guitar. Is this speaker safe to try with a ported 15 cabinet to use for bass? What about a sealed cabinet, is this preferable? Maybe this is not the right EV for bass guitar, I honestly don't know. Fwiw, I am not crazy about this speaker for guitar use as its a bit cold and sterile, very hi-fi sounding but certainly very flat in response and tight bass. I lean towards more vintage sounding alnico speakers for many of my guitar amps. My bass amp is an Eden Metro from 2004 with the 2x10s, how would this EV speaker match up with the Eden?
