Got my Eden CXM-110

  1. I'm very impressed. It has better low-frequency reproduction than my D-210Ts, and more importantly it's very flat. I hear a lot of upper-midrange detail out of my Dean that the D-210Ts had obscured in their wall of low mids. The tweeter transition is very smooth, too. The CXM-110 reminds me of the Aguilar GS112s I played through when I visited Bass Palace three months ago.

    Construction is up to Eden's high standards: tough stack-lock corners, tightly-woven carpeting, and an excellent top-mounted handle. Applause is in order.

    I think the CXC combos and CXM cabs have been overlooked in the wave of trendy small cabs like Euphonic and Acme, which is a shame because they have a wonderful sound all their own.

    If I have a chance, I might just pick up another one.

    I think a good way to look at Eden cabs is to compare them to DiMarzio guitar pickups.

    The 210XLT is like a Super Distortion; the output is very high given the amount of power going in, but all of its output is focused on a narrow low-mid frequency band, and that low-mid "hump" overpowers the characteristics of the instrument feeding it.

    The 210T is like a Tone Zone; the low-mid spike isn't as prominent, but the output is still mostly concentrated on low midrange frequencies, and the instrument feeding it is somewhat obscured by the cabinet's characteristics. Not very versatile, but the one sound it gets is a nice one.

    This CXM-110 is like a PAF Pro; the super-high output isn't there, but the tone is much more balanced and reproduces the nuances of the individual instrument very nicely. The extra upper midrange detail comes in handy when trying to cut through the mix.
  2. Thanks for the report, ak. Do you feel the CXM-110 is handling your b string adequately with a flat eq setting?
  3. Oh, definitely. It reproduces every pathetic nuance of my Dean Edge Custom 5's crappy B. With my WT-300 on 4, I came dangerously close to cracking plaster each time I played a C#.
