    Hi everybody,
    I know that these ones are not very popular among talkbass users, at least I haven't yet read about any guys but one who own one.
    I'd really appreciate any comments of people who have played through this cab, and/or the CXC410 combo, which uses the same cab.
    At the moment I'm trying to sell my Glockenklang 2x12" because it doesn't exactly do what I'm looking for. Actually it's lacking cutting punch, which is so important to get through the mix, and I'm not doing quiet Jazz gigs all the time! So I need to know whether it's capable enough to be used as a stand-alone-cab and how it actually sounds in your opinion!
    Thank you in advance

  2. If you're looking for punch, the CXC/CXM series has it. I own a CXM-110 and have played through a CXC-210 and 410 and can honestly say that they could hold their own in a dense mix.

    Wow, now this would be a reason to become
    superstitious, how could you answer that fast!
    :eek:
    Anyways,thank you for your reply! I hope that you won't be the last (wouldn't be my first stuck thread!! :rolleyes: )

  4. my experience is quite the opposite, mostly. I think sonically they can cut thru OK, but my 210 combo could NOT handle a low B, or low C for that matter, at all, and lacked volume. I was really disappointed, cuz I waited for months for that thing to arrive after ordering. I was rid of it in a few weeks, got an Ampeg and haven't looked back.

    Now, for quiet gigs and no 5-string, I guess they would be OK.
     
  5. OK, I can understand the lack of B-string handling. My CXM-110 has a much bigger cabinet-to-driver ratio than the CXC combos and so can handle a B reasonably well, although when cranked it gets a little farty.

    So Mark,
    the point is, that I'm planning on Buying the CX410 cab, which handles 500 Watts RMS, and has propably more volume than most of the 4x10 cabs I know, because of its design:

    Actually I'm quite confused, because I had a gig yesterday, and my Glockenklang cab performed great, good punch, awsome definition and growl! But this only seems to happen occasionally!
    Fortunately I've found a person who owns the CXC-410 C4 combo, and I will visit him soon to see how it sounds.

  8. it's very possible that the 4x10 performs better than my 2x10 combo did. Then again, why the price difference between the CXM and the XLT and now XST, all from Eden?

    I'm interested in how this cab works out for you Johannes, please let us know. I found a web site http://www.smile-music.de/ that has info and specs for these cabs and they mentioned that the drivers for these cabs were redesinged in 2001. Maybe you had an older model, Mark. I'm interesed in the 2x10 as it is very light weight but I definitely want to try before I buy based on the feedback it has received.

    I have a CXC-1015. I play in a R&B band. With an Extension cab. It works well in just about any club(Sometimes I cheat and use my WT-1000 and XST-410). But the CXC by itself I wouldn't try it with my 5'er in a nightclub situation unless it was a smaller club or a quieter club.

    Hey Basss,
    that actually is the page where I got the picture from, but nevermind, thank you!
    :D
    Yes, we'll see what it can do for me. Today I was planning to go to a shop which carries a used Goliath III at the moment. Completely different, but I'm interested. Unfortunately, my grand parents will arrive this afternonn, so let's see how to get around the family-thing!
    ;)

  12. I have the CXC1015-C4 Amp 2001 Model and I have nothing but praise for this amp. It may be heavy but it has the punch that I need with that 15" and when I get the 2X10 cab for it I just know it's going to soar. Granted that's more gear to drag around but the sound the sound can not say enough about this amp. The boys in the band as well love it and our guitarist is a fussy little s&*t.

    Before going to in-ears (no more monitoring problems now...) I was running an Eden 2X12XLT and was having problems hearing myself. I bought an amp stand from Quicklok and it really made the diefinition come out by throwing the on-axis sound right at me; lower level from the cab and better monitoring. I now use a CXM-110 for a trad. celtic group that I play electric-upright with, and I put it on the amp stand, not a problem being heard, and I don't need to be very loud to hear myself. This is a bonus amongst many acoustic instruments!
    Just another option for you...
