TFTGR on GD radio on XM had David Gans talking about how Phil switched sides of the stage so he could be much louder without comprimising stage volume.

:lol: That king kong is awesome!

IIRC those are the same 4 cabs he's been using, just stacked vertically. Must be a tight stage. I'm sure glad I'm not the guy who had to put that 4th cab up on top! :shock: 98 lbs each per Eden's website.

reminiscent of his 1979 vertical array:

That's stage left by the way, left and right are from the perspective of the stage looking out towards the audience. Phil had been stage left for P&F as well using his Meyer custom array for years prior to switching to the Edens.

I love Phil. That old fuck can rock it with the best of em! Everytime I see him, I am just so happy and impressed. Bobby too. I love that Phil is 71 and is still like, "well of course I need this many cabinets...what the fuck? stack em the fuck up if you need to!"

Actually bass speakers project better if stacked. It would be even better if they were staggered, like Bag Ends, or were in a single line straight up. When placed side by side they can cancel frequencies. Two Meyer's stacked would be awesome.
