    I found a Mesa Boogie 2x10' wegde cab for 300euros..
    Do you think it is a good deal ??
    Has anyone already tried it ??
    It think it is 200W, but I am not sure.. Can you tell me ??
    My gear is Ashdown 500 EVo II, a 1x15' Mesa cab..
    Will the wedge rock with that stuff ??

    I have two of the wedges. They are rated at 200 watts each, and I think they sound great. I run a M2000 with them, and stack them up side by side like a little mini 4x10. They don't have a ton of low end since they are so small, and they don't have a horn but they really don't need it. I would characterize the sound as fairly balanced with some emphasis on the upper mid range.

    Mesa didn't make many of them, so I really couldn't tell you if 300 euros is a good deal (what's the exchange rate these days?). I got mine for $200 each, which I thought was a steal.
     
  3. I own a Mesa Boogie buster combo, wedged with 2x10s in it.
    It's the same configuration as the cab you're referring to.

    300 Euros are I think ~ USD350.00. Not a bad price. I've seen these wedge cabs here online for sale between $250.00 and $350.00.

    By the way, I am getting a very good low end out of my wedge combo all the way down to the low A (I D-tune).
