    I'm dreaming up a miniature rig here, one Eden WT-400 and two Hevos Midget 10" cabinets.
    Good for 400 Watts and - if the specs can be believed - 40Hz-20hKz.
    The stack would be about 14"x35"x13" (36x90x34cm).

    I would like to try it. Now all I need is a $3000 lottery win.

    Hello FretNoMore,
    I recently got my Hevos Dual-Tube-Preamp (same preamp as the one in your 400B head) and I am really satisfied with its tone. Warm, clear, detailed, punchy, pleasant... :D . I am also interested in the Midget cabs, but I would have to drive about 250 km in order to try them.
    Some guy in Germany offered me a used Hevos Power 2x10", which is propably good, but I am also keen on shrinking the rig as much as possible! Do you think that one Midget (400 watt RMS) would handle 700 watts of my power amp in bridged-mono?

    Glad you like the preamp, if I remember correctly you bought it without trying? I love my amp!

    A 700 Watt amp into a 400 Watt speaker is no problem unless you turn it up too much. It can even be better since the speaker will get a clean undistorted signal. Just watch that dial... :)

    If I were to get a single cab for reasonable portability I'd look at Hevos' Donar cab, that looks great.
     
  4. I am in the UK how do I get hold of these?

    Clarus... Yummy!

    I've been dreaming about different small foot print amps to put on top of those 10" speakers; Clarus, EA, Eden...

    How do you like the Clarus, does it have enough power?

    Weighs 30 lbs. Has anyone heard one? Seems to me there's only one amp needs to go with those cabs and that's a Walter Woods Ultra!:bassist:

    :spit: (Envious!)

    I just checked my lottery tickets, and they were duds. :p

    Maybe next month.

    If you do buy them, please report on how they sound!

    Hey Fret,
    I bought it without trying, that's right. No regrets whatsoever. The 210 of the Power series is even supposed to handle 800 watts RMS. Imagine that! :eek:
    With tsuch a cab, my 700 watts don't seem to be very much anymore.

    Well, then. You should really look into the Mesa Boogie Walkabout. It has great tone, and a lot of power packed into a 12" by 12" 13 lb box.
