Need opinions/comparisons on EA CXL-210 vs. NL-210

  1. O.K.

    I've been waiting a while (read: six months) to add an EA 2x10 to completely round out my cab selection. I've been wanting a 4-ohm NL-210, but when one went up for sale in the classifieds, I was the first responder to the advertisement - yet I never heard anything back (pm or otherwise), and in the past few days have found out that it was sold to Tombowlus. No hard feelings - just would have loved to have heard something as I thought I had posted/pm'd first on it.

    Anyway, this aside, I might have a chance to get the CXL-210(used and minty) instead, and I'd love any advice, comparisons, what have you. NL-210's just don't come around often used, and I can't justify a grand on a 2x10 right now.

    Appreciate any input from anyone who has used or still uses the CXL cab.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    I'm sorry, Jay. I did not know anything about that. :meh:

    But, it it helps at all, here is my most recent 2x10 shootout, which includes comparisons of the VL-210, CxL-210 and NL-210.

    Again, my apologies. :(

  3. Wow, the specs on the EA site archives listed 24 kilos as the weight - 53-54 pounds I could do, but 80 pounds do not interest me in the slightest.

    Thanks,
