    I've been hearing a lot about the CXL-112L and NL-210, but how do the CXL110L's stack up? I was thinking of maybe getting a pair to run with my Eden WT-400. I play an F-Bass BN-5, upright bass, and Chapman Stick, mostly in Latin, jazz, pop, and free improv groups that play at reasonable volumes (i.e., usually w/o electric guitarists). I'm really interested in getting the best sounding small/light cabinets available.

    Also curious if the NL-210--being slightly less efficient than the CXLs--would do OK with 230 watts @8 ohms from the Eden as a standalone. Thanks.

    about time, dangit!!! :mad:

    :p :D
  3. I would ask Mike Dimin to comment on this, I think having a little more power really opens up the NL210, although it starts sounding really solid with the master @ 3 - still quite a bit of headroom left in the 800. This might be pushing the Eden, though - just couldn't tell you.

    I have a pair of the CXL110's along with a pair of the CXL112's and CXL210's and I use the CXL110 more than any other cab. Although the CXL112 will outperform even 2 CXL110's in filling a room, I prefer the tone of the CXL110's and 2 of them is still a VERY respectable and impressive sounding rig. I highly recommend them.
  5. Here's the actual rig with my newest F Bass. I pick up the companion CXL-112 on Monday!

    The top on that F-bass is killer! I can't imagine how it sounds through your new rig.

  7. So I picked up the CXL112 today and added it to the NL210 for a rehearsal with my R&B / blues cover band.

    It added a surprising amount of depth to the sound, plus the expected amount of output! I couldn't dial the master higher than 0.9 without feeling I was too loud for the space!

    I'm sure now that I could do 90% of my gigs with either the 12 or the 210, and still have loads of clean headroom to spare! But I love the combined punch of the 210 and the wide bottom and depth of the 12 together - OK maybe I'm just hyped over the new rig!

    Now I need to spend some time fiddling with the tone-shaping properly. To date I've used the "Mike Dimin signature" setup (all flat) occasionally punching deep and/or contour 2. I can't get a bad sound out of this setup... :hyper: :D

    And I got the new manual on Sunday - really well written, Mike - nice job. :cool:

    I'll take a pic of the rig with my two main basses tonight.

    It is an amazing rig - I own the same combination. The only difficulty is finding a gig that truly justifies both cabs - turning it up and letting it rip
