Anyone compared the Eden 2x10 bass cabs to others out there? Anyone compared the Eden 210 XLT to the Eden 210 XST? What are your thoughts on this?

Michael, I have an Eden Metro combo which is basicaly a 2x10 cab with a Eden head attached.
It's a real good sounding combo with real good bottom a good crisp high end. My only gripe is that its not very durable. I have had soldering come loose in the head I assume from the bouncing in travel. But never had any trouble from the cabinet.

I have turned into a total Schroeder fan for cabs. The 1210 light at about 35 lbs has one 12, one 10, and more sound than any 2x10 on the planet.

If you're going to run a single 210 or multiple 210s, go with the XST. If you're going to use the 210 with a different cab (212, 115, etc.) go with the XLT. The XST has massive bass response for a 210; the XLT is close, but 'plays well with others' a little better. Though you'd be hard pressed to go wrong with either one.

+1 on XLTs playing better with others. I had an XST when they first came out. Sounded great - really nothing wrong, but couldn't blend it with other cabs (15's and another 210) to save my life. Since I wasn't interested in investing in a second XST, I sold it. On the other hand, in my experience, XLTs have a little less bass and sweeter, punchy mids. They mix and match freely with other cabs. Both XLT and XST are nice cabs, though.

That's interesting that the XST doesn't work as well with other cabs as the XLT. Thanks for the info!

I borrowed Mike Pisanek's rig a while back and it was superb. F1-X into a QSC PLX2402 into two 210XSTs. The bass response was awesome and the midrange punch was pretty imressive too. If they'd been a bit lighter I'd probably have gone that route instead of the EBS NEOs for my own rig.
