Which Cab?

    I have a EBS TD650 head and a Eden 410 XST cabinet.

    The EBS puts out 650W at 2ohm while the XST is an 8ohm cab.

    I want to get another 8ohm cab to go with the Eden and I think I've limited the choice to a 212 or a 115.

    The EBS 212 is normally 4ohm only, I could order one specially at 8 ohm and may yet do that.

    I would really appreciate any other options or thoughts you guys may have.

    If you used the 8 ohm Eden and 4 ohm EBS together, the resulting "nominal" impedance would be 2.67 ohms, above the minimum for the amp.

    Depending on the relative efficiencies of the two cabinets, this may or may not be a good thing. The 4 ohm cabinet would get essentially 2/3 of the power and the 8 ohm cabinet the other third. Note that these are broad assumtions based on nominal impedance.

    You could (probably) rewire the Eden cabinet to be 2 ohms (assuming that the drivers are 8 ohms each). But then you could only use one cabinet...but you'd get full power out of your amp.

    Get the 8 ohm version of Avatar's B212.If you run it parallel with your Eden,you'll have a total impedance of 4 ohms.I know from experience that it will kick ass.Good luck.
