    Why does Eden call their 2X12 cabinet "D-212XLT," when they do not put XL series speakers into it? (The speakers they put into this cabinet are the EC-1260F speakers, similar to those they install in the non-XL, rear-ported cabinets.)

    Thanks for your time!

    Dunno. Why do they call it a D-118XL when they put a EC 1804 in it? Do you think it means anything? Is Eden RIPPING US OFF?

    I believe the XL refers to the extended lows when they add the port on the bottom

    I think this is correct because I did buy a used Eden D210XLT and had it for a week. I did not like all the lows that was coming out of the 2x10 so I returned it. I got a SWR JR Goliath III which is not as bassy. Its more tight and bright and clear. I don't know, maybe I was made to have an SWR cab rig with an EDEN WT-600?!?!?!????

    I figured the XL stood for extended lows. It just didn't seem like the 212xlt had the bass response I thought it would when I tried it out next to my Metro. It was very focused in the mid-range but did not have the low-end I was looking for. I just don't think the 212xlt stands up to the same standard as the 210xlt, 410xlt, and the 115xlt. It does not have the same XL vibe.

    I had the same impression. I owned one for a short time, and it lacked bottom and it lacked highs. I sold it to our sound man, and he loves it. I lean more toward the sound of tens ... the more the merrier. My D-410XLT has mucho mas bottom, yet maintains the punch and highs required by the modern bassist.
