Ok, so I've heard all you guys who use these older EV-loaded RR mesa cabs swoon over how great they are, but I've always been happy with my 2 Eden 410XLT's and '76 SVT810. Well, I picked up a roadready '84 2x15 that's in fantastic shape for $350, mostly out of curiousity. For the price, I couldn't pass it up. Played it at low volume off my Ashdown 500 and thought it sounded really good. So we're having practice the other day, and I'm using the Edens, and one of the drivers starts distorting horribly. What timing, huh? If there was ever a time to really test out the mesa, this was it. I plugged it in, cranked up the 500, played a few notes, and everyone (including me) went "holy sh*t!". Fat, gnarly, and LOUD! MUCH brighter and MUCH punchier than I would ever believe 15" speakers could be. To be fair though, I pulled the grill off the ailing Eden 410, and all four drivers are creased big time. Who knows how long they've been this way, and they were probably seriously detrimental to the sound of the other 410... Still though, comparing one (the good one) 410XLT to this RR 2x15 for what I play (loud ass rock) is a no-brainer. I now bow down to EV-loaded mesa RR cabs. I'm on the lookout for another one, or a powerhouse 1000, and my Eden cabs may get sold. My $0.02, YMMV, FWIW, etc.
