Looking for the bottom end

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Stumpy, Apr 16, 2004.


  1. Hey there fellow bottom dwellers :ninja:

    I have an Eden Metro. Love it. But I just got a Yamaha TRB5 and the low B is not as full as I would like to hear it.

    What cabs can both bring out the low end and compliment the current Metro setup?

    Help???

    My favorite cabs at the moment are Acme LowBs. They really crank out the lowend, but the problem would be that the metro would severely underpower them.

    You've opened a can of worms that will let you hear about how just about every cab on the planet is better than the next. I suggest you contact Eden and see what they suggest first then find a dealer and try whatever cab they suggest before you buy it. Another suggestion since you're not happy with the way the Eden sounds now is get rid of it and get something else comparable in size that will do what you want. If you're dead set on getting another cab and another Eden cab doesn't work here's a list of some of the better cabs on the market:

    Euphonic Audio
    Bergantino
    AccuGroove
    Acme
    Aguilar
    Bag End
    Epifani

    If you go the additional cab route, be sure and try it out first if possible to be sure it sounds with your Metro.

    I would HIGHLY recommend the Eden 210XST.

    It an efficient cab unlike the ACME but has awesome low end just like one.

    Im currently using two 210XST cabs and Im loving it.

    Call up Gard at Bass Central and he'll take care if you.

    Peace

    Maybe an Eden 15"? It would give you the booty that the 210's are lacking. Or try an Eden 210XLT. I tried the 210XST and the 210XLT and wound up buying the XLT. The "midrange hump" of the XLT gave me more of the sound I was after.

    The speakers in the Metro will give the mid-bump and the XST will give the powerful lowend.

    Should sound good together.

    What he said.

    The Metro is a head built on top of an 210XLT cab.

    Adding another 210XLT cab will help, but adding a 210XST will give you nice low end.
