ashdown Mag 810 Deep vs Hartke 215XL

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by wrathofgod, Apr 27, 2010.

  1. hey people, how´s it hanging?

    so, here is the deal. i´m a new proud owner of the orange terror bass 500. now i need a new cab. but i don´t really know which one to get.
    these are the two possibilities:

    - ashdown MAG 810 deep
    - Hartke 215 XL

    here a few facts. i play in a stoner rock band, filled with a bit of doom. we got two guitars, and my on the bass of course. my equipment:
    ibanez eda > tuner > bassballs > BBmuff > terror bass > ???
    the bass is tuned to drop D

    so, what cab should i get? anyone owns any of those cabs? and how do they sound? help would be really appreciated.

    ps. those two cabs kinda cost the same. i don´t need ampeg or markbass recommendations. they are out of my price league.

    thanks in advance..
  2. anyone? a quick hint might help.

    Personally i would go for Ashdown MAG 8x10. never play a 2x15 but would love to tho
  4. ASHDOWN!!!!
  5. Yeah, those XL series are pretty underwhelming.

    For the price you paying i think the Ashdown 8x10 have more to offer until you have enough money to get something better. A good 2x15 is very good but i won't play any cheap 2x15.

    Should get decent tone and enough volume from the Ashdown.

    A used Mesa Deisel 215 could be had for around $400. Great cab, at twice the price. Otherwise, I'd choose the Ashdown 810 over the Hartke 215.
