    I recently traded for a 8 ohm Eden d-410 XLT. I'm using a Demeter Pre with QSC RMX2450. The RMX2450 is rated at 2 x 750 @ 4 ohms, 2 x 500 @ 8 ohms, 1 x 1500 Bridged @ 8 ohms and 1 x 2400 Bridged @ 4 ohms.

    How should I run the Eden? If I use one side then the cabinet will only get 500 watts. If I run bridged, I'm afraid I'll overdrive.

    Also I'm thinking about adding a 210-xlt. I know this might be overkill but I play in some loud bands.
    If I ran the 410 and 210 together bridged at 4 ohms, would the power be evenly distributed between the two cabinets? How would you recommend running a 410 and 210 with the QSC.

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't feel safe pushing 1500W of power into a cab that can only handle 700W RMS. If you do this, you will have to be very careful with your volume level. Personally, I would run this cab on one side with 500W.

    If you get a D210XLT, the power will be distributed evenly to both cabs if they are both 8ohm cabs and are bridged mono. You can give your cabs varying amounts of power if you run your amp stereo.

    I run (well, ran. New rig. :D) something simmilar. Carvin DCM1000 into an XLT for practices. Now, I'm not sure about 1500, the XLTs are rated at 700 watts, wich is more than double.

    I would think it would work, as long as you kept the poweramp turned down. A lot. A third of the way up is more than you'd ever need with 1500 watts. But, don't take my word as the final word. If I were you, I'd run it off one side if you were paranoid, bridged if you felt comfortable with it (Personally, I would, but I'm a little crazt).

    I think max headroom is rated at twice the RMS handling anyway...as Bob Lee (QSC), he's floating around, and is really helpful.

    What's the impedance and either continuous or program power rating of the Eden d-410 XLT?

    FWIW, I run a PLX 1602 in bridged mono (1000 watts into 8 ohms) into an 8-ohm EV cab (rated 200 watts continuous). Even when I'm really shaking the building, the level LEDs only flash up to the -10 dB point, and the clip LEDs seldom blink on at all, so my average power is probably around 50 watts or thereabouts. I'm well within the limits of the speaker.
