    Features,Tone,Price differences?
     
  2. I have the CXC, but haven't played the highly respected Metro. The CXC is lighter and cost less. It will tend to crap out on the low B string at high volumes, and the coaxial tweeter doesn't get quite as high as a standalone tweeter. But for me, it works, and I like it. Someday I'll get an ext. cab to go with it......

    I've never tried a CXC combo before, but I have owned a Metro for about a year now. I absolutely love it. It has the monster Eden tone and can easily handle a low B at high volumes. It has two preamps with separate effects loops so you can switch your sound on the fly. Moreover, it has 600W of power available at 2ohms if you add some speaker cabs to it.

    Overall, the Metro is very versatile and powerful for a combo. It has not let me down yet!

    If money isn't an issue, go with the Metro, no question. More power (450 watts internally, with an external 4 ohm cab 600, vs. ~250 watts internally, 400 @ 4 ohms), more flexibility (two independant channels on the Metro). The Metro handles a B string with extreme authority (it's essentially a D-210XLT cabinet with a WT-600 grafted on top), and as has been pointed out the CXC will give up the ghost at high volumes. The Metro comes standard with castors so moving isn't a major problem, but lifting it in and out of a trunk is an effort, it's not light by any measure. I just happen to know a place where you can get a KILLER deal on one too........ ;)

    I own the Nemesis 1x12 200w combo amp. It's great for tone, not too good for volume. I paid $600. great
