    I hope you guys can chime in on your thoughts on a speaker config.
    Right now - I have an Eden WT800 and playing Mesa Boogie 1x15 and 2x10 cabinet (diesel series)

    I play mostly with a pick, some slap and play R&R music.
    I am thinking about changing my speaker config and would like your thoughts - good and bad. Here it goes..

    Option 1.) Get Eden speaker cabinet D210XLT and a 1x15 cabinet. (same config as I currently have - difference - Eden speakers) Benefits - same config. familier with sound and setup

    Option 2.) Get D410XLT and a D210XLT and go with that config. Benefits - D210XLT small gigs and practice - D410XLT bigger gigs - run it Bridge-mono into 8 ohms. or combine both cabinets at 400 watts @ 4 ohms.

    Option 3.) Get 2 D210XLT - Benefit small compaq config - 1 cabinet for home one for practice - easy to move around. At the gigs combine both cabinets for 4ohms at 400 watts.

    I would like your thoughts on these configs as well as the sound of these cabinets and if it would make a big difference compared to what I am using now.

    Thanks

    The Mesa Boogie is a really nice cabinet and good for R&R. It is pretty big and really heavy. If I was going to replace the Mesa I'd get the Eden 2/10 and an Eden 4/10 instead of the 15. The 4/10 has a higher wattage capacity and I personally like the sound of 10's.

    10s are great even for 5 or 6 stringers. Go with your sound that you hear. Don't get an 18 or 15 because you think the bass will get pushed farther into the audience. Just get the 15 or 18 because you like it. Personally as of now, I would use 2 Eden 410XLTs. Now thats awesome.:D

    you may want to consider 2 eden 212 cabs...relatively small, bigger "chest hit" factor i would think, higher power handling... just an idea.
     
  5. I just got another 210XLT yesterday from Bass NW to go with my other one.I use a Carvin R1000 head so it's sort of like your amp.I was considering the 212XLT, but they said it would be a couple months till I got it so I went with the 210.Boy am I glad I did.When I stacked them and cranked them a little it was too loud and very clean with a TON of bottem.The 212 would have been great too but I can' imagine ever needing more than these two cabinets.t
