    Hey guys!
    I had a question for you:
    I'm searching the market around here for a 4x10 cab, and I've tried the eden, and a mesa 2x10, but i haven't been able to compare them one next to the other, I tested them months apart!
    I'm looking for a more punchy, glassy sound to go with my m-pulse 600 head, i need more clarity cause the type of music we play requires alternate tuning (I play FCGDA), so I need something that's gonna prevent me from sounding like a big woofy dude!:D

    My preference would be Mesa.

    With the 600, mesa for sure. I didn't like the way Eden cabs sounded with that head. It sounds amazing with all of mesa's cabs, or with Aguilars.

    Also look at the 6x10, 2x12, or a pair of 2x10s ... since you really want a 4 ohm load with the 600 and the 4x10 only comes in 8. Plus, 100lb 4x10s are the most difficult thing to transport ever invented. Any of these other options would be more portable, even the 6x10 assuming it fits in your car.

    that's basically what I was hoping to hear!:D
    I mean, not to knock the eden, I just hear they're not quite reliable among other things, but Dirk Lance for instance swore by them, so I figure why not give them a try and all that

    For punchy and glassy, definitely try the 12"s too.
