    Does anyone have any experience with Ashdown cabs? If so, how would you compare them to other leading cabs (Aguilar, SWR, Bag End, etc.) out there? I've got one of there electric blue 115 combos and really like it and was looking into possibly adding a 112 or 2x10 when more volume is needed.

    The consensus seems to be that if you are pairing them with an Ashdown amp, they are the way to go.

    They may not work that well with other amplifiers however.

    I have a mini 115 and 112 powered by my EVO 300, and really like the sound.

    Go try some out and let your ear decide.

    Bino, it's my understanding that the electric blue won't push a second cab. that was why I went with my Mag 1x12 combo last year over the Electric Blue.

    I'm 1/2 looking for an extention cabinet too. I might go with a Bergantino HT112 but I'm also looking at the Bag End S12, Epifani 110 & the Ashdown mini stuff (a 4x8 would be nice).

    The newer (150 watt) Electric Blue does in fact have an extension speaker out.
  5. I have an Ashdown Electric Blue 130 - the older model that doesn't have the extension speaker out!

    I'm well impressed.

    I demoed the Minin 4 x 8 and 1 x 15 cabs last week - it now looks like my beloved Trace rig is about to become a Trace head with Ashdown cabs. They are every bit as good as the Trace stuff - juts my back will thank me (and I've spent enough on a chiropractor recently!)
