    What is the difference in sound between Eden an Bagends 2x12 speakers. Whitch is best suited for loud pop/rock?
    Please give me your oppinions!
    What should I pay for them?
    I will use the cab with my Ashdown ABM300
     
  2. About $180 less for the Bag End ($715 vs $535)...

    I tried the Eden cab recently (4 ohm), and it is the first Eden cab I've ever liked. It is very un-Eden in sound, and I think it would be great for loud rock / power pop. Two would be even better. Had a very high 'chest-hit' factor, but has a good deal of tight low end. I think it would work great for someone like me who plays moderately fast with a pick. It kept the low end from turning into a big low rumble. I may drive to Washington DC this weekend to try the Bag End. I'll let you know if I do.

    If you check my profile I allready have Trace Elliot cabs and I have owned a Trace combo. I think they sound really sterile and cold. Not my sound.

    I have blown my Eden 2-12 TWICE!!! I really dig the cab, it has the vintage vibe with the modern tightness. I wanted a stand alone cab for an alternacountry thing (which means we aren't heavy metal loud). Its light (75 lbs). It sounded good, but can't hold up...so I have to have it reconed (again) and then its up for sale. Too bad, I thought I was on to something. Just for reference, I have used, abused and otherwise played through Eden 210/410 cabs for years and not blown one yet...smells like the 12s aren't up to the task.
