    Last Night we opened for our friend's band at a local bar, and I just used the bassist's amp that he had rented for the weekend. It was a 2x10 eden nemesis i think 320 watt. This thing tossed out great lows for its size. My B string would sound distorted, only because I had the thing cranked to keep up with 2 guitarists and my drummer, but wow. I bet a 4x10 with maybe a 15 or something would sound GREAT. The lows just sounded so tight and thick, even compared to my 610hlf powered by svt4pro. I think i may have to find some eden amps/cabs to test!

    I played on a nemesis 4x10 combo and it had a great sound to it. even the 2x12 was pretty darn good. but for low clean sound the 4x10 was a surprise.

    I have 2 Nemesis NA320s (I use them both at the same time for very large gigs) and run them through various combos: 2 SWR 2x10 cabs stacked (4 ohms for the full 320 watts), 1 2x10 alone, or with my vintage Goliath cabinet. Regardless of the cabinet combo, at 8 ohms (200 watts) it is amazingly powerful and clean, and at 4 ohms is can blow the wall off the back of a club if I want it to. Friday night was the first gig with the vintage Goliath and man, the sound onstage and out front was incredible. A 4x10 setup seems to bring out the best in these heads for sure.

    I hate Eden but I like Nemesis. Nemmy just sounds better to my ears. Not nearly as clanky as Edens can get.

    So do the nemesis amps/combos have a different sound than the navigators and the xst cabs etc?

    I think they do. More old school...less brightness, less scoopy tone, etc. YMMV.
     
  7. i agree with Jimmy, the Nemesis amps have a warm, flat tone with powerful EQ controls
