    I will soon be getting a EA iamp 350, and was thinking about which cabinet would sound better a 2x10 or a 1x15?.
    i'm thinking about getting Eden.

    Actually, both together should sound great. I suggest the 8 ohm model if you plan to buy one now and add another later.

    I would get the 1 X 15 first.

    I agree with nanook. although I prefer the low/mid sound of a 15 to that of a 210. For an all in one cabinet to act as a good compromise between the two you may want to consider a 212 cab. eden makes one, and like all things eden, im sure its a great cab.

    Nanook is right on. If you have to choose, you don't want to play through a 15 by itself, even an Eden. Too muffy.

    yeah, 10's first, then add the 15. 15' subwoofers are slower, and as munji said, mudder if just played by themselves.

    the 10's would give you a more immediate punch and articulation, while 15's would be a great low note pounder, holdin' down the low end, type of sound.

    Audition the Bag End S15-D. It may convince you that a single 15 is the way to go. It has much better definition than an Eden 115.
