    Yorkville xm200t combo or Ashdown magc210 300 ??
    i have a ciirus 5 maple alder what amp would be better?
    what 2/10 combo is best for the $$$$ thanx :confused:
     
  2. if you have a 5 stringer i would go for neither! there 2x10s!! a 1x15 would be better for you, the yorkville xm200 200watts 1x15, you can always add a 2x10 extension and it will give you more surface area and it will up the power

    i agree , i had a 4/10 peavey cab W/ nitro head! i just love the 10 w/ horn sound! i just need something more compact!!
    dont you think the 2/10 combo would be fine till i got the 115
    ext cab! :meh:
     
  4. it would most likly fart out at loud volumes but if you got the 2x15 extension you would be fine but you would always have to have the 1x15 extension, with the xm200t 1x15 combo you would only have to bring the combo for practices and small gigs and then when you have bigger gigs just add the 2x10.
     
  5. were the hell are the owners that own the xm200t

    I've got a Peavey Bam 210 and nothing but 5 stringers and I don't have any problems at all with the 2 10"s. I do agree that you should add a 15" ext cab though. It just fills the room so much MORE!! ;)
     
  10. yea but that peavey bam cost somewere around 1,000 dollors!

    it is a very fine combo though

    I've played both the XM200 and the XM200T with my 5 stringer, and I liked the XM200T better. I also played the XM200T with the XC210 ext. cab A/B'd against the XC115X cab, and also liked it better.

    But to each his own; one of my co-workers preferred the 15" speakers.

    He plays more old school R&B, rock, blues, and some jazz, where I play a lot of funk, hip hop, and gospel. Different tools for the gig at hand.

    Play em both, see which one is the right one for you!
     
  12. well than if the yorkvie xm200t can handle a low b than get it!

    i think the xm200t would go best with the xc115x extension cab not the 2x10 extension cab.
