    I have a chance to by an SWR Goliath I 4x10.
    It was made by EDEN.
    This cabinet is in great shape.
    Anyone out there that can give me some info on how it stacks up against the new SWR 4x10 Goliath III would be greatly appreciated. Also a fair market price suggestion.
    Also does how does it compare to the EDEN D 4x10 XLT?

    Ive never played on any of those cabs. A search would turn up a lot of info Im sure. I think people like the older Goliath II better than the III but I dont know about the I. Sorry about the useless response! :bassist:

    Maps the changes in between the G1 and G2.

    The G1 and G2 are rear ported and have the classic scooped mids "SWR sound". I don't have much playing time on the G3, but to my ears, it has a flatter sound with some mid "honk". The G3 is front ported.
