high power capable 1X15 to offset my setup?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by mrWr0ng, Dec 13, 2002.

  1. Hey guys what's up, my current setup is thus:

    Eden WT400
    Mackie 2600 poweramp
    Eden 410XLT
    Eden 115

    right now both cabs are rated at 8 ohms, so the mackie will dump 500 watts into the 410XLT, but the 115 is only rated at 200 ohms, so i'm not quite ready to hook it up to the mackie. I was looking at a 115XL, but they seem to only be rated at 300 watts, so I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on a strong 115 cabinet that can take the 500 watts @ 8ohms (or a 4 ohm cabinet or whatever) to help me finish up my setup. I like the eden sound, but I'm definitely open to ideas.

    If you are looking at replacing your 1x15 anyway, why not go with a cabinet with an 18" inch speaker instead. It would probably give you deeper lows than your current 15.
    There are many PA Subs on the market with single 18" speakers that work well for bass in a biamp setup (since you already have a 4x10). Several PA subs are available that handle in excess of 1000 watts.
    Another idea would be to replace the 15 in your current cabinet with something that can handle more power (I think EV has 1000 Watt 15s).
  3. My favorite 1x15 is the Aguilar GS115. It'll handle 400 watts, which should be just about the right number--you want to be overpowering your cabs for clean headroom anyway.
