Hi,
Does someone can post the frequency response curve of EX112?
Thanks

Hi Deb,

Welcome to the Garden!

Although there are no frequency response "curves" available, Eden does list the frequency response as 42Hz-12KHz.  It works surprisingly well by itself in a small venue.  I'll use two EX112's in medium-sized venues, and I'll pull out my 410 for large venues and outdoor events. 

The two 112's stacked together certainly sound better than just using one due to the sonic coupling.  That has been true of every 112 I've ever heard.  Two always sounds better than one.  Although the low end on this little cab is surprisingly good, reinforcing that with a second 112 cabinet stacked on top of it just makes that low end meatier without making it muddy.

I primarily use that single 112 at  an open-mic on Friday nights that we host at a local Brewpub.  I've used the two 112's at a number of spots now, but just the one easily handles that Brewpub.  I recently purchased a TN226 from Jim here on the forum and that is what I'll pair it with.  I put the TN226 in its shoulder bag, grab the single 112 in one hand and my bass in its case in the other hand and loadout is almost done.  I do have to go back for my mic stand and stage stool, but it beats hauling in heavier gear where I don't need it.

One thing I would recommend though is to get two of the 8 ohm instead of the 4 ohm version.  I got one 4 ohm figuring I'd use my old Nemesis RS400 to drive it (400-watts @ 4ohms) and that worked great.  After buying one, I had to get another and sure enough about 2-weeks later I had it. But I couldn't drive both of them with my RS400 because it won't handle a 2 ohm load.  Minimum ohms load on it is 4 ohms.

At this point, I had to pull out my WT500/800 and hook one into each channel (each channel will handle 4 ohms and put out 400-watts).  If I had bought the 8 ohm versions, I could drive both of them with either my Nemesis RS400 or possibly with my new TN226.  My WT500/800 basically weighs the same as a WT800 (26-lbs) and the 4-space Gator RotoCase I mount it in is almost another 15-lbs.  So I'm lugging around 40-lbs. or so with that set up, which is not light.  By comparison, my TN226 that I can use with a single cab, weighs 4.7-lbs.

If I had thought it through, I would have purchased the 8 ohm versions because I could run up to 4 of those with my WT500/800 amp.

the frequency is 42Hz-12Khz but I don't know if it's ±3dB, ±6dB or ±10dB?
I can't try it, that's why I want to see a frequency response curve to compare to others (like acme)
Maybe someone can generate it?

Of course it is possible to generate, but you need a proper room and measuring equipment.
I have the equipment, but unfortunately no EX112.
I doubt that any of the EX112 users here can do a FRC.

Anyway, the FRC doesn't really show how a cab sounds.
Best way to compare is to play the cabs in real life.

Don't know where you are based but you could perhaps buy from a retailer like Amazon who are used to taking purchases back if not suitable.  Uk Amazon have some in stock at about £250. Their US site lists a 4 ohm at at $270, even cheaper...
By the way I agree with everything Dan says about them - I chose 4ohm EX112s because I can drive them with my WT330 which does go down to 2ohm.
UK member, WT330, WTX260, 2 x EX112 (both 4 ohm), WTDI, and a Microtour as well as a Roland Super Cube Bass, Blackstar HT5, Fender Jazz '67, Fretless Fender Jazz '70, Burns Barracuda, Epiphone EB-0, Ashbory, Stagg EUB and guitars and ukuleles and a mandolin as well
