I loved the old ones. Bought some reissue versions when they first came out.. weren’t the same, but that was 15 years ago.. maybe the newer ones sound like the old ones.....
holy moly. 21000 posts....Hope I’ve been helpful to some of you.. I’ve certainly learned a lot along the way.. thank you.......
I have a quad of the Heritage g12-65s and I think they’re awesome. They are dark but I like that I can turn the treble and presence up more on my 2203. They have a great mid-range and relatively tight bass as well.
Well, I spent some time this weekend trying to remove the back of a Bogner Oversized 2x12 cab to install some Scumback BM-75 LD's, the Scumback take on the G12-65 speakers. Too tired to fire it up right now and only two soldering iron burns. I will fire them up with my Friedman JEL amp with this cab after my solder headache goes away.
I got to play the JEL via two Bogner Oversized 2x12 cabinets. I think you can describe the Friedman JEL as a bright amp, although you can adjust the tone. But with everything at noon, I have the following results
Cab 1- Mix M75/H75 (Very Bright sounding, almost tinny sounding).
Cab 2- two BM-75 LD's (Warmer and very nice). This is the appropriate speaker combination for the amp. Jim was right on the money once again!
And, I love the M75/H75 speaker mix for other amps, there are my go to speaker combination for my BE-100. But, those BM-75 LD's just worked for a bright sounding amp. It makes sense as I have heard G12-65's described as dark speakers which the G12-65's seem to replicate to some degree.
