    is the Ashdown Electric Blue 180 watts with a 15 inch speaker really that different from the one with the 12 inch speaker? I'm desiding which one i should get but i dunno if paying more for the 15 inch is realy worth it.

    I owned the ashdown EB 180-15. Its a very nice combo and I reccomend it. I wish i never sold it. It has a super nice tone and a great eq section. Can I ask where you are buying from and the price? Ashdown is very difficult to get in Canada (I live in Vancouver).

    the advantages of a 15 over 12inch speaker are:
    -more volume due to larger speaker surface area etc
    -tone will be more inclined to be low.

    disadvantages:
    -cost
    -weight
    -12 will be more punchy than 15 (which can be tweaked with eq if need be)

    If I were looking for a combo again the EB 180-15 would be high on my list.

    I wonder why they dont sell Ashdown in Canada?

    I bought mine from bassnorthwest for $299usd which i thought was a great deal.
     
  5. Hope I am not late. I just bought a brand new Ashdown Mag 300c 115 combo from my music store in a small ontario town 499+Tx Canadian.
    I belive that as of June 2005 Ashdown as been availible in Canada.

    Here is the distibutor.
