Paul is spot on.  When I first got my EX112-4, I ran it with my Eden Nemesis RS400, which puts out up to 400 watts at 4 ohms.  I didn't run it anywhere near maximum so I wasn't worried and I run a really clean sound, so I'd be able to easily hear if the speaker started making farting sounds from too much power.

Then I got a second EX112-4 and had to go to my big WT500/800 so I could plug one into each channel.  Each channel will put out up to 400-watts @ 4 ohms, so it's like having two of the RS400's in one amp.   Again, no problem running that at all.

I recently bought an Eden TN226 which puts out up to 225-watts at 4 ohms and that's what I'm using now when I only use one of my 112's.  Obviously since it puts out 225-watts rms and that cab will handle 300-watts rms, there's no worry about overdriving it with the TN226 amp.

As long as you use your ears to listen to what your speakers are doing, there's really no problem for using a more powerful amplifier, unless you are going to be running it close to or at maximum power.  For the longest time the D410XLT (handles 700-watts rms) was considered the perfect match for and was widely used with the WT800 (800-watts rms bridged).  Nice thing about Eden gear is that it puts out such a clean sound, you can easily hear if you are stressing your speakers.

No problems at all, provided you use your ears - unless you run the head closer to maximum you won't be putting enough watts in to stress the speaker in the EX112.  At normal volumes there should be no danger to either.  Although some people stress the idea of a match between head and cab, very few people run amplifiers at anything like maximum output and so how close the match is becomes largely irrelevant.  The only danger I can foresee is that you love the EX112 so much you get another... if you get an 8 ohm EX112 you will present the WT400 with a 2.67 ohm load and another 4ohm will present it with a 2ohm load.  My WT330, like a WT405 will go down to 2ohms quite happily - I don't know whether a WT400 will - I suspect it won't but others will tell you for certain on this... Incidentally if you find an 8ohm EX112 the WT400 only puts out 235 ohms into an 8ohm load so the problem will go away...

I have a WT400 that’s been dormant for a while.  An ex112 4ohn cab is for sale near me.  This combination would be for home use mostly.  If I don’t crank it will the 300watt ex112 perform well with the 400 watt head?

Which of the follwing cabs is better for reggae and old Motown sound, Eden 410XLT or Mark Bass 104HF? How are these cabs different from each others?


BR: Reggae man

Hi there,

I have the HF104 Mark Bass and are exchanging for an Eden 410XST as these are more focused and punchy. You'll find the MK BASS Cab ok but I'm not sure why they are even popular as they pump out a lot of woolly bottom end and are not as good as the old SWR Goliath.
The Eden 410XST has a more focused punchier bottom end and is a lot better made in my book.
The LM MkBass head I use simply because it is light and easy to carry around. The controls have two knobs which can be used to alter the freq response for old school or funk, the problem being the HF104 does not reproduce much other than volume.

My basses include a Sire V7, Yamaha BB615, Ibanez SR505, Fender Jazz with EMG active pickups.

My favourite rig is the Eden WT550 and my current SWR Golight 4x10, the Eden cab I tried out is even better.

Try both out before purchasing and don't make a mistake buying something that does not work for you.

Eden may not be the lightest out there but it is certainly the one for a wide range of musical styles and does not "fart out" like many other cabs I won't mention.

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.

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.
