    I hooked up this bad boy yesterday and all I can say is....DAMN! At least for now. More details and Porn to follow, as time allows.

    :D :D :D

    I should mention, leaving my DB 680 nearly flat, the tone is very ballsy and delicious! I put 1500W into it really seemed to open up with the extra power. It definitely sounds better to my ears than the Eden 410XLT I had been using. I'm even debating whether or not to get a 2nd cab...it's pretty dang powerful! I'll probably get a 2nd anyway...:p

    Hmn...Sounds spicey. I'd trade my XLT in towards one myself, but with Eden's future (or, at least, a pre-gibsonian future), I'm keeping it as an investment. Never know, it might be like 70's SVTs in a few years.

    In the mean time, I'm looking at Epi for my next cab (either the 412 or the 410)

    I have an Epifani 4x10. I love it! I've compaired it with the Eden and liked it more. Super low end that is VERY tight!!!! Monster volume too.

    I just did a little shopping for myself while I was at it this year...the Epi, an Ernie Ball HD-210, a Trace Elliot Speed Twin gu*tar head, and a Marshall 1982a 4x12 gu*tar cab...:D

    Cabs (or just about any gear) make(s) great gifts for sure!:p

    WooHoo!

    My new BE Q10-LX came in Monday, just in time for Christmas, though I was hoping to get it for my B-Day (Nov. 28) but Christmas is fine. the volume capability if this cab is suprising, and the drivers barely move. It has a gu*taristic high end which is what I was looking for.

    Merry Christmas to us new cab owners, and Merry Christmas to all.

    Very cool, Steve. You oughta be ready to kick butt in any room, now! I dig Epi cabs. Been using my T-212 a lot lately. Congrats.
     
  8. Speaking of Epifani and new cabs, thanks to coyoteboy, my rig now looks something like this:

    I'd love to give the Epi 4x10 a try, but I'm far too old and lazy to haul around a 100 lp cab anymore. ;)

    1500 watts :eek: I wish they had these sorts of cabinets in my neck of the woods. I'd love to hear 'em. Congrats!!

    Movin' some air there, Mike!
     
  12. Heya! Well, I liked the first one well enough to buy a second one (plus a 1x12). :) They sound great all the way down to the low B, handle lots of power, and are not a lot heavier than my old Eden 2x10. The size makes 'em a bit of a pain to haul through doorways, though--the new 212D cab is probably a bit more managable.

    I only use the pair for the heavy prog band. One 2x12 usually stays in that band's practice room, while the other goes back and forth to practice, home, and gigs with both my bands. (The 1x12 stays in the blues/country band practice room.)

    That skinny stack looks good Mike! Must be one loud prog band...
     
  15. "Eh? What's that again?" [holding hand up to ear...]

    Yep, the guitarist loves his Marshall Silver Jubilee half-stack, and he likes the gain on both channels on 10 and the master volume at about 3 o'clock. Now that I have two cabs to handle the power, I'm thinking about upgrading from a 1200-watt Mackie to a 2400-watt QSC PLX.

    Maybe I should be looking at the Epi 6x10 instead?

    hee hee, that's what i was thinkin'...how heavy are your guitar players? i know the character of the mtd 535's, so imagine you're gonna cut through the mud no matter...do the 12's cut as well as 10's?

    IME the Berg HT310 cuts through much better than the HT212, but the twelves punch better than fifteen-plus and push more low end than the tens. Again, this is Berg vs. Berg only... your mileage may well vary when comparing different brands.
     
  18. Just one guitarist, but that's enough. You know how they are--"I've gotta be this loud to get my tone". ;) Seriously, I could be heard with just the one 2x12, but I was pushing it hard all the time (power amp overload lights flashing on a regular basis) and eventually burned up one of the voice coils, so I replaced the drivers this week. It seemed better to go with a pair of cabs, and not have to push either so hard, plus it puts at least one cab up at ear level.

    Yes, the MTD definately cuts, as does the Wal. I forget just how much they cut until I bring in the Jazz--that one fills up the bottom nicely, but I can't hear the notes at all in this prog band. (It's great for the other band, though.)

    PS: Steve, sorry for hijacking your thread!

    Heh, ditto. I would love to fire up an T410, but no Epi dealers are convenient to me. :(
