    None. At all.
    Has anyone used an Eden 210 XLT as a standalone cabinet? Can it hold its own with a full band and handle a low B?

    Mine can't. Nor do I use my 410 XLT as a stand-alone. Gots to have at least a 15" for good lowend.

    Just my preference. The 10"s alone are too middy for my taste. Plus, paired with another 8 ohm Eden cab, I run at 4 ohms and can run with a lot more juice from the power amp.

    My Eden 410XLT puts out a wonderful low B. I am completely happy with it. It makes it easier to forget my 215. I don't think the extra cost of adding a 115 would make it sound that much better.

    I have one that I have used as a stand alone with a 5 string. The short answer is no.

    It's a pretty impressive 2x10 box but at the end of the day, two ten inch speakers are only going to move so much air. For a three piece or smaller band, 100 seats or less bar, 90db or less volume it can do the job. Beyond that you need PA support.

    I used one D210XLT for quite a while in a wedding/corporate gig band, usually without PA support. Worked fine, I just got tired of the voicing. Handled my low B's without drama. It was never not loud enough. Ran it with a 250w @8 ohm amp too.

    The opposite was true, for instance, with my GS112

    Thanks, guys. I think Brad was using the Eden cab in the same context I'd be. I was kicking around the idea of a pair of GS112s, but I'm having cold feet about it.

    There's a very vocal proponent of a standalone XLT210 on the newsgroups, but I wanted to get the scoop from those who spend more time gigging than arguing;)

    Agree fully. Mine is an excellent extension cab to a 4x10 or 1x15, but it struggles on it's own.

    i use a 210xlt [4 ohm] as a stand alone quite often.i actually consider it my large cab.
    medium size gigs , never have a problem not being loud enough, plenty of bottom.though i recently picked up a avatar 112 for an extension cab. for larger rooms, just to push more air in the room not really for me to hear.
    this is in a wedding/ dance band and also only on a four string bass.great cab in my opinion.
