WalterWoods 100watts 8oms

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Grooveman, Dec 10, 2001.


  1. I need a compact cabinet 12 or 2x10s or 15 that I can put on a dolly and take with me on the subway. I would use my walterwoods ( which I think makes any speaker sound great). Im playing both electric 4 string and upright. I am leaning to the 2x10s but any opinions on the comparison of the different cab is welcome. I have no dealers in Tokyo that have bagends to try out...
    Thank you

    I own the same Walter Woods amplifier. I have tried it with a variety of speaker cabinets. I am currently enjoying the Woods head with two Euphonic Audio CxL-110 cabinets.

    I decided to buy a pair of 1x10 cabinets to maximize my flexibility. A single CxL-110 (8-ohm) gives me enough volume for a jazz gig in a small room. Both CxL-110 cabinets give a total load of 4 ohms, which the amplifier will drive at about 200 watts. That gets pretty loud. The EA CxL-110 cabinets weigh about 34 lbs each (15.5 kg for the rest of the world), so you could pull a pair of them with the Woods head on a good luggage cart.

    Another alternative would be a single EA CxL-210 cabinet. I did not go with that because of the 8-ohm load.

    Other cabinets that I have tried with the Woods include:
    * Eden D-210MBX "wedge" -- lighter than the full-size D-210XLT but very loud with just the 100W. Sound was more aggressive than I wanted.
    * Hartke 210TP -- This is light for a 2x10 and I liked the tone at lower volumes. However, it broke up in an unpleasant way when pushed. One might try the 210XL.
    * Bag End S15-C -- an older cabinet which is similar to the S15-D. For me, sounds too muddy by itself. I would rather go for the S15X-D, which has a coaxial tweeter.

    If weight is of primary concern, you might try Flite cabinets. I have not used one, but have read some good things about them on the Internet.

    I'm currently using an Epifani T-112 with a Woods head and have lugged it on a luggage cart for a few gigs.

    It's smaller and lighter than either the Peavey 2-10 or the Acme B2 cabs I used to own yet does not lack in terms of overall tone or volume.

    I use it for both upright and electric bass.
