    Well, I love the D-210T, and ostensibly the 210XLT is even better, so...

    I still have a pair of these (stacked vertically, of course). I only wish they were lighter.

    It's an excellent cab if you can tolerate the weight. I like the XST a little better - less of a mid hump.

    I am a fan of mids, and the Aural Enhancer that SWR and Eden amps have, knocks some mids out when its cranked, I usually boost mids even when not using it.

    Eden has always made great sounding cabs. But yes, in the world of neo-loaded cabs, they are a bit on the weighty side.

    I think that's one of the best sounding 2x10 cabs, I bought the 8x10 version ages ago for my rehearsal facility after some snugglemuffin set fire to the garage block my beautiful old CTS driver'd Ampeg 8x10 was stored in.:-(
    I love the mid bump its all part of why it's such a great sounding and extremly sensitive bass cab.
    For all the nay sayers about tube amps and ported cabs? my old Simms Watts 200 ultra linear design sounds fantastic driving the XLT design with no sign of fubbyness down low.
    Weight wise?.
    So far the concreat floor and geological structure beneath, has proved robust enough to support it without major subsidence.:)
    I have seen a couple of the smaller XLT's with creased cones due to being driven beyond X LIM I hope your cab has not been too badly abused.
    PS I have a mate that still gigs a verticle two by 2x10 rig with one of the cabs XLT and the other cab XST.
    Mixing speakers police aside, a marriage made in heaven if you ask me.

    +1 to the xst/xlt combo stacked vertical. xst on the bottom, xlt on top. It'll look a bit funny as the boxes are different sizes but it'll work better that way.


    If the only thing wrong with it it is the dust, and the cones are good you are laughing.....$99 leaves you a lot of money left over for a cart.
