    Hey all,
    Just won an auction for an Eden WT-600, for $730!
    Cant wait to get this baby and sell off my Mesa Basis M-2000.
    Question for you guys, my cabs are both Ampeg Classics. I have a 2x10 and a 1X15. Both rated at 8 ohms.
    Do you think I would be better off selling those and getting an Eden 4x10?
    Thanks, and let me know,

    A veritable epiphany. Congratulations, and yes.

    Congrats. Eden amps are very nice. Their speakers are even better. Definitely get the Eden cab, you won't regret it.

    Welcome to the club!!! :bassist:

    As Jugghaid put it, very nice amps and amazing cabs IMO. You can't go wrong with the XLT or the XST series, I own a 410T and a 215XLT and they are devastating together.

  5. Snazzy!!!!

    The WT600 will serve you well... I've been gigging one for 4 years now, I wouldn't trade it for anything (...well... maybe a mint WT800 :D ).

    If you run the 2 Ampeg 8 ohm cabs:
    -don't bridge the amp
    -set gain somewhere around 12:00 or 1:00
    -enhance around 9:00
    -set tone controls near flat
    -don't defeat compressor

    Use the L - R balance to find the right mix of your 210 and 115. Make sure they are in phase.

    Provided that the sound of your bass is relatively balanced, it should sound pretty good.

    Let us know how it goes. :)

    Thank you for the set up tips Bimp. I really appreciate that. I was a little fuzzy on how I was going to set that up.
    I will be using the Ampeg cabs for a couple of months, then should have enough money for the Eden cabs.
    Thanks again everyone. Glad to be joining the family. :)

    Sweet! I also have a WT-600 and have suffered no amp GAS since. I suggest bi-amping it into a 410. It works well for me and bimp.

    I'll also underscore the enhance knob suggestion. Resist the urge to push it past 9:00, it will hurt your tone IMO. Also, the bass and treble shelving knobs are REALLY sensitive ( little goes a long way). I'd stay off of those.

    great choice. ditch the ampegs and go heavy to the light of the eden cabs.

    Ampeg cabs for an Eden head? That's like putting vinyl seats in a Testarossa.

    Buy a 410XLT, and you'll never reget it.

    UPS just stopped by. My Eden WT 600 is here!
    Going to the music stores today, to see if I can get a good deal on some Eden speakers.
  11. Oooohhh, cool.

    Let us know how it's working for you. :cool:

    Very cool, man!

    I have a WT-600 myself. Goodluck on your cab hunting. I planned on getting Eden cabs too. But after trying their 2x10, along with Aguilar and EBS 2x10s, I ended up buying the EBS.
