Extension Cab for an Eden Metro?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by jimbass55, Aug 17, 2003.

  1. Well I finally bit the bullet and picked up an Eden Metro.(will be shipped to me next week) I am definently going to get an extension cab, but I am not sure what I would like. I would really like to stick with Eden, so what would be your choice given the following circumstances:

    I play Country, Rockabilly, Blues, Southern Rock- I use a Fender Jazz(active p-ups) and a Fender P(passive)-Will be getting a G&L L2500 soon- I also play a Kay Upright with a K&K Rockabilly pickup.

    Those with Eden experience or educated knowledge let your opinions fly. I am leaning towards the 2x12(sounds like the best of both worlds on paper).

    I don't have the opportunity to play Eden products so let me know what you think. Thanks.

    I would get an Eden D210XST. Eden 2x12's do not have a lot of low end. The 210XST has it in spades.

    The metro is one LOUD combo. wait until you get it home before you decide to get more. I like the idea of the additional 210. if you like the eden sound get eden.
  5. I haven't even given the 2x10's much consideration. I haven't had good luck with 2x10's, but I should give the Edens a chance. So if I understand correctly, the 210xst has more low end than the 2x12's?

    I do love the sound of 4x10's, but the 410xlt is very heavy and I like the idea of the 59lbs for the 2x10. (matched with the metro-gives me my 4x10's)

    I believe the Metro runs 8 ohms internally, so with an 8 ohm extension it will be running at 4 ohms, 4 ohm extension at 2.67 ohms.

    What about with (2) 8 ohm extension cabs? (for example- the Metro, 2x10, 1x15.
