"EVM12L Classic...the BEST of 'em all!"
I installed the speaker in my Peavey Special 130 Amp, and it really came alive with a fuller, cleaner sound. It responds more quickly and follows every nuance of my picking. This speaker doesn't color your sound, but expresses it exactly as what your amp is pushing into it. I play strictly Country, with tons of Tele Twang. It has sparkly highs, smooth mids and lows that will knock your socks off.My fellow band members and fans who know my sound, have all commented what a very big positive difference it made in my sound. This speaker articulates exactly what I've been playing and hoping to get out there for years. I have other bigger and more expensive Fenders and Peaveys, but this one is my main go-to-amp now. The hugeness in sound just blows me away. This amp sounds like its six feet tall and cruising.
I feel it's everything a guitar speaker should be. Sure it's expensive, but darn worth every penny. I've had 'em all....Webers, JBL, Black Widows, Scorpions, CTS, Jensen, etc...including all the wannabe copy-cat speakers out there, but nothing even comes close to the real deal. You just gotta spend more to get more and you feel glad you did when you finally get that sound you've been chasing.
Ease of Use:
From the moment I first turned on my amp after installing the speaker, it blew me away. I didn't have to do much tweaking at all. It's a very robust combination, this Special 130 and the EV12L Classic. This setup is definitely a keeper combination for me.
The speaker is built like a tank. Very well made. Quality and class thru and thru. No flaws whatsoever. I highly recommend this speaker to everyone who wants the best and needs the best.
I haven't had the need to contact EV. But I heard their service people are the best in the business.
It's worth every penny. Sure it costs more than the copy-cats that others are making, but it's Built Better and Sound far better. This speaker is the measuring stick that others wish they could be.
The Wow Factor:
It looks great and sounds great.
It's finally broken in and sounds just wonderful. It's sinmply the BEST speaker I have ever owned in any of my many amps. Very huge sounding, yet sparkly and deep. Never muddy sounding.
