    just ordered a Quinn sdo, can't wait to get her, but I need a 2x12 when I save some more dough, till then it will have to go through my Marshall 4x12, I want a vertical one, but just wondering who makes good cabs and has a decent selection of speaker options, also what speakers 12-65s or ev12l or what and why? Thanks guys I did a search but didn't find what I was looking for

    I just ordered a Port City Wave 212 cab, which I will load with one Celestion Gold and one Austin Sound Works 65Hz ceramic. Dave, did you get the normal or the oversized cab?

    I couldn't figure out why the oversized cab is lass expensive than the regular 212 cab.

    I bought mine back when all Daniel had was the regular-sized cab. It's an enormous-sounding beast and is a really nice weight and size for hauling around, so I don't really feel any need for the OS model. I'm sure it sounds even bigger though! Have no idea why the cost would be less. ???

    I have two D-sytle amp and two cabinets: One with 2 Heritage 12-65s and one with reissue EMV 12Ls. Both sound fantastic but they are a little different. The EVMs are louder and have more heard room. The have a bit more of a rounders sound to me. that cabinet leans more Carlton. The 12-65s sound a bit more open and have a bit more of an edge (to me). That cabinet leans more Ford. BTW, check out the emporium, I am selling 2 brand new 12-65s (I bought 2 extra when I ordered them)
