why have two 2x10s when you can have 1 4x10??
Lighter weight! Easy to carry around. Less space required. makes a great coffee table.
oh ic but soundwise?
If you have smaller gigs, you may want to just take one 2x10" instead of both. With the 4x10" you don't have that option.
You can stack them on their ends which creates a line source with more projection and coherency. And they're easier to carry and hide in a small flat.
Another odd fact is that, at least in the Eden line, the 210's are a bit deeper sounding than the corresponding 410's!
Example, the D410XST is rated to have flat response to 36hz, the D210XST is rated flat to 30hz.
I chose 2 2X10s for both reasons above.
They're easier to carry and fit in my VW (both fit easily in back seat), and sometimes I need only one for samller gigs and rehearsals.
And 2 XSTs are sweet! (listen to Gard!..he's the man).
I have 2 2-10 cabinets because of protability (weight), it gives me the option to take only one to a gig, and I can leave one at church and one at home and not have to carry a cabinet back and forth. Another plus is being able to put a cabinet on each side of the stage. And last but not least, two 2-10 cabinets look cooler stacked than a single 4-10!
Id imagine any difference in sound in a 4/10 would be due to less cab per speaker. Causing different resonant qualities..e.t.c
On a slightly different note...anyone know of a brand that markets a 2/10 for half or less of the cost of a 4/10? Or does it always save money to buy one big cab?
I like running the two GS210's in stereo with a chorus.
thanks for the input guys! keep 'em comin'
another question: if the amp has higher wattage than the speaker, i.e. swr 750x and an eden 210xlt which is rated at 300 watts, wouldn't it destroy the speakers? sorry, i'm stupid when it comes to this kind of stuff. thanks again.
