I have what I beleive to be an EVM12L 8 ohm speaker. No markings that say EV on it at all..but it looks just like an EV speaker. It has a black cage and a large gray magnet. Markings on the magnet are as follows: 812 0650 8903. It sounds phenominal. I jsut got 2 other speakers that I wanted to compare it to as my plan is g to put 2 EVM12L's in a 2x12 cab because i loved the sound of the one I had so much. The new speakers just dont sound the same. 1 is an 80's EVM12L (that is labeled as such). It sounds thinner and when I use overdrive on my Quinn SDO it sounds buzzy. (NOW..truth be told I had to "jerry rig" the connections because my speaker has spade terminals and this has push ins. So I used alagator clips and very thin wires. That may have made a differnce in tone. not sure). The other new speaker is a Eminence delta pro. A EVM12L copy. CLeans are ok..but just not as throaty sounding as my original EV speaker. Supposedly its broken in. Not sure. Anway, I'll do more testing tomorrow and try the 80's EV with proper connectivity. But I want to make sure my original speaker is actually what I think it is: an EVM12L. It looks physically just like the 80's EV except has a black basket.
