    Here's my current setup: Ken Smith BSR5M & MM SR5 --> Alembic F1-X --> QSC PLX1602 --> Eden 410T Cab. I Play mostly gospel, funk, and R&B. I eventually want to replace my cab with a Bergantino HT322, but I need a smaller 2x10 for smaller gigs before getting it.

    I looked at the Bergie HT210S (haven't actually played one though) but I would like other options. Any suggestions?

    Tom Bowlus did a really big 2x10 shoot-out here a couple months ago. Lots of really good information. You should be able to find the thread pretty easy.

    I really like both the older HT210 and the HT210s. Two other very close competitors to consider are the EA NL-210 and Glockenklang Duo.

    Tom, you ever played one of the Epi 2x10's?

    I have played the T-210UL, which I believe is the same as the UL210.

  6. Another cabinet to consider is the D210XST.
     
  7. The Epifani UL210 is an amazing sounding cab. Check it out if you can.

    For the record, I do have favorable impressions of both the UL210 and 210XST, but I haven't had the chance for an extensive comparison to my other cabs. But based upon the time I did spend with them, I give them good marks, but I stick with my "top 3", above.
