    Aguilar. Almost got an Eden, but the aggie was just a tad smoother. Quite a bit cheaper as well . . .

    Hartke 410XL. See also Jack Bruce, Garry Tallent (Springsteen), and Stu Hamm (Vai & Satriani)

    Eden XST. The XST is a very different cab from the XLT series. Voiced lower and flatter and 1000 watts to boot. I switch from an Eden D-210XLT and D-115 to the XST by itself and I absolutely love it! Check em' out!

    I love the sound of my Trace Elliot set up.
    1-4 10 w/t horn and 1-300watt 15" bottom.
    and my new Trace Elliot V4 head.

  10. hey grooveguru! Whats the difference between the XLT and the Xst? not in specs but in tonal qualities, and i'll be running it under a SWR workingmans head for a while, then i'll upgrade to an Ampeg head preferably the SVT 3 pro. oh yeah, i'll be using a Yamaha RBX 260, then i plan for a Warwick Thumb Bolt on to enter the picture...thanks

    The XST just seems to be an overall flatter cabinet that lets your bass's natural sound shine through. A very refined and articulate cabinet.

    Very full sounding without that low mid hump that the XLT is known for. I used an XLT cab before and it didn't sound as well as the XST does with my Lakland 5ers.

    I'm using an Eden WT400 which is 400watts @ 4 ohms and the 410XST only comes in 8ohms so I was worried that I wouldn't have enough volume at 8ohms (225-275 watts?), but let me tell you this cabinet screams. Same gains as I was using with a 4ohm load!

    Highly recommended! Give Beaver or Gard a call at Bass Central and they'll fix you right up!:D :D :D

    peavey ok now you can flame away but i like em.
  13. I play in a hard rock outfit. I was playing my Mo' Bass through a Triad untill 2 days ago. The Triad wasn't cutting it, great lows, but a little lacking in the overall cut/push area. I Picked up a brand new Goliath III for a grat deal and all I can say is it's a whole different ball game now... My Guitar Player and his Dual Rectifier have a little something to contend with ;)

    I ues a mesa boogie 410 cab. great tone but 131lbs my back is fried. btw I hear the Aguilar cabs are great as well. Anybody else out there use mesa cabs? like to get opinions.

    i'd go SWR, (and have 3 times as of now ;) ) but if you like bass cabs like i like bass cabs (nice and clear and flat, no strange mid humps or what not)i'd check out the mesa and eden XST cabs as well.
  16. Ampeg SVT410 HLF. Simply the best sounding cab I've ever heard.

    Does this mean the Acme B-4 is not a contender?

    410 XST has my vote.
    How about 2 210 XST's ? :eek: I'll definitely end up going that route.
