    Thinking about selling the the eden 2x10 xlt, and
    getting an Epifani 2x10 UL. Looks good on paper.
    Anyone using one? How are they at low volume?
    I've found the xlt is a bit weak at lower volume.
    It likes to be pushed in order to get tone.

    I have a 210UL and 210AP. Cannot find anything wrong with these cabinets. To my ears, they sound good at low volume. They do like power. A single 210 sounds good with a GK 1001RB; not so good with a GK 400 RB. I think a pair of 210's will handle just about any situation. They are unbelievably light weight.
     
  6. I have a pair of ULs which I like. Punchy, accurate, clear. There is something in the highs and upper mids that I haven't experienced yet in other cabs, I guess that's why some people call them HiFi.

    I'm not sure how the Epi UL and the Eden xlt compare but from what I've heard they might be quite different.

    I power the ULs with 440 watts and they are doing just fine, sound good to me at moderate rehearsal volumes.

    Very cool if the epi 2x10UL can punch at low volume,
    and still be articulate and fat at higher volume. I have
    been told the Epifani speakers like some power. I'm not
    sure why. The sensitivity specs look pretty high.
     
  8. I was a bit anxious about giving the ULs enough power too when I bought them. But they sound good with my head, a Glockenklang Soul. Plenty of volume for my purposes - I never play large clubs without PA support.

    But then, I'm sure they would sound even better with twice the wattage.

    The 210 cabinet is rated at 500 watts; Epifani recommends power of 200 - 1,000 watts. I'm thinking an Ampeg SVT-4PRO
    may work well with one or a pair of 210's.
