Eden difference

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Insighted02, Jan 29, 2003.


  1. Hi,

    What's the difference between the eden 2X10T and the 2X10XLT?

    Is there a big diffence in sound? What is that difference. How similar are the cabs? How much "better" is the XLT?

    Thanks once again...

    You'll notice Eden has a specialy designed port system that has the air travelling a fair distance before it leaves the cab. The xlt has 2 of these ports (top and bottom) but the T only has one. I tried them both and bought the XLT. That extra porting generated a smoother bottom end, and it's actually very loud for a 2x10.

    the T also has a smaller power rating, 250 watts versus 350 watts.

    The T is an older type Eden Cabinet, rear ported. The XLT is front ported, may have a better frequency response. I have a 410T, don,t use it much, got a great deal on it, came with a padded cover for $250. Try a search here should be alot of info on Eden.

    Hope this helps :)
     
  4. Actually the 210T (older and newer) is front ported as Petebass stated. The 410T is not.

    For my playing, I would go with the 210T. It is a little less agressive sounding than the XLT. I just prefer alot smoother of a tone. The XLT will have a lot more low end.

    The previous posts and the Eden website will provide you with some pretty straight forward info.

    I've owed both models of cabs and currently run two 2-10XLTs with a GK 1001rb.

    The 2-10T is a very good punchy cab. It has a decent bottom with a punchy mid and snappy highs. The 2-10XLT, IMHO, provides you with more low end and more power handling capacity with pretty much the same mids and high end response of the T.

    T-Jay, Don,t know what front ported 410T you have have but i assure you mine is rear ported. Also the 410T is rated at 540 watts . I did take a look at the Eden site and the 210T is front ported on the bottom :D
     
  9. DB5, I believe I said the 210T is front ported and the 410T is not (meaning it is NOT front ported, thus it is REAR ported). I'll try to be MORE CLEAR in the future.:D

  11. Yes, where is munji? This is odd. Maybe he's given up saying the same thing over and over?

    heh.

    I have a semi decent munji imitation if anyone want's to hear it:

    Eden's the best. Period.

    Thank you ........Thank you very much. *bows* :D (no seriously, I could use his expert know how on this)

    You guys didn't hear?

    Munji became a fulltime Eden pimp. No more time for TalkBass.
