High priests of tone; bestow on us your knowledge!
4X12 cabs for sure, if you were wondering! :BEER
To rich for me. Next!
Within their wattage range; Electro Voice EVM and FORCE, JBL D, E & K series,
Altec 417-8H, Celestion Sidewinder (12S-150)
SOOOOOOO, I take it, the higher wattage rating, the more articulate???
EVM12L. I've never heard a more articulate speaker
What about the classic lead 80's?
If EVM12Ls are too expensive for you - go for Celestion Classic Lead 80s. They'll get you 90% of the way there for a lot cheaper. They're ridiculously revealing speakers. Not my favorite (I like speaker breakup and the CL80s don't have it), but they I do have one that gets a good workout for band practices where I just want to drag around a 1x12'' instead.
Not necessarily but those particular speakers happen to be fairly articulate, particularly the JBL D120 which is probably the lowest as far as watt rating of the ones I listed.
The above speakers are very articulate, but also very revealing, unforgiving, and very present..[AKA in your face]...If you find you want something warmer, try a Celestion 100, 80, or 85...just my opinion
2 x EVM12-L and 2 x Celestion G12K-100
My totally biased opinion
I agree but that is what articulate is all about. I used to like that type of speaker but I'm more in the Celestion camp now. Give me a Rola Celestion G12-65 any day.
Buy 'em used, look at their Force line, etc.
Also, Eminence offers the Delta Prp 12A - great speaker w/ similar specs at a lower price point.
An EV-like speaker is worth the extra $.
I just posted in that thread. Man I love the looks of your cabs.
Your bass player and mixer-man must hate you.
I have had EV FORCE speakers in several combo amps and cabs. I think they would be a great choice. I currently have one in a Boogie MKIIC+ Simul Class and prefer it to the EVM 12L that now lives in a box. Think of it as a warmer, more musical version of an EVM. The EVM might still be the choice when at very loud levels, I don't know because I don't do that any more.
