Eden XST in a XLT cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by cannon, Jul 26, 2003.


  1. I own an Eden D210XLT. I want to replace the speakers with the new XST's. How well will this work? Will it still have more low end response?

    :help:

    It will work, but the only advantage will be that the power handling of the cabinet will increase. The low end response is more the cabinet than the speakers, you would need to re-engineer the cab.

    Sorry dude, the only way to get the lows of the XST is to get the XST.

    The crack dealer is right.

    He got me hooked on the 210XST a while back and Im pretty sure he realizes Ill be comming back for some more.

    Just drop the extra bucks for the cab, you wont regret it.

    Peace

    can you use a "subharmonic" octaver with the XST?

    Besides, I don't think Eden will sell you the XST drivers. I know a dealer who tried to get some for a guy who wanted to do exactly the same thing. No dice.

    AHHH.... Ill try.

    When is it anyways? Ill have to check with my managers at GC to see if I can get a day or two off to check it out.

    Just the other day I met a guy at work who is a customer of BC. He's actually using an Ashdown subharmonizer and I recommended he check out the XST line for his set up even though we dont carry Eden anymore.

    Its solid low end response should work well to bring out a lot more of that beef you get with the subharmonizer system than most cabs.

    Peace

  9. I believe your right. I emailed for price days ago and so far no response.

    I've never been fully sold on my cab. I use it as a practice cab at home. When I practice with my band, I'm using a Goliath II 4x10. It's super low in comparison to the 2x10, and the deep rich sound is what I prefer. That's probably just the nature of comparing 2 totally different cab's.

    In the music store I thought the Eden sounded really good, but when I got it home it was a little more mid-range than I prefer. It really makes my fretless bright, and that bass doesn't need any help in that dept.

    The Eden really cuts through when used as a compliment with the 4x10, but I'd really like to get a deeper sound if possible. Anyone for trade up's?
