1) Ashdown Electric Blue 210 150: This is the disontinued 2x10" with tweeter version of the 150 watt EB series. It was the last run of the made in Britain Ashdowns. 2) Ashdown MAG C210T 300: This is the new 2x10" with tweeter 307 watt model in the MAG series. These are now made in China. Although there are indeed some differences between the MAG and Electric Blues series, they share many features. The control panels are nearly identical. The obvious difference is the little VU meter is actual on the MAG, but simulated (series of LEDs on the Elec. Blue). Also, the MAGs have considerably more wattage. Both lines are now made in China, but the MAG I'm eyeing was made in Britain. For these two, there are many similarities: - active/passive inputs - deep and bright switches - 5 band rotary EQs - FX loops - similar speaker arrays - DI outs For these two, there are also two big differences. 1) EB was made in U.K. while new MAG is made in China. 2) MAG is 307 watts while Electric Blue is 150 watts. I like the idea of made in Britain vs. made in China - especially since there's so little history with the new Chinese Ashdowns. On the other hand, 307 watts is definitely better than 150. Still, given the drummer and guitar players I play with, I'm fairly convinced that a 150 watt Ashdown would be enough 90% of the time anyway (while the PA would pick up the slack when needed). Is the fact that the EB was the last of the British made run enough to compensate for some of the upgrades that the higher end MAG series offers? Any recommendations from the experts here?
