    Anyone ever own this one? The old one with the cloth grill. What was its wattage rating? Was it a good cab? Was it rear ported? Would it sound good with two stacked with a SM-900?

    if it had a cloth grill it was definitely manufactured by eden circa 1987 or so
    check the back panel and see if it says manufactured for swr by eden
    there are very little differences between the goliath jr and goliath jr 2
    the cab was rear ported and sounded good
    2 suggestions
    #1 get a goliath 2 meatal grill for it as they had problems with the wood in the cloth grill breaking the drivers during long excursions of the drivers
    #2 have eden recone the drivers for you
    it takes 250 watts at 4 ohms but should be able to put up with the 350 watts per side of your 900 as long as you listen for any speaker distress at high volumes
