    Have one in my Kitty Hawk M1 combo,,, seems like a pretty good speaker, but thinking about swapping in a Mesa Black Shadow ,,,

    is the Mesa speaker an upgrade ?

    Thanks in advance ....

    They are very similar. I like them both.

    Funny. Was trying to do some research on these last night. I was just playing a Yamaha DG80 112 that had one in it. Sounded pretty good but nothing that compare it to. I was trying to dial in some bouncy bass and was not able. Other than that sounded pretty good. Thinking my lack of familiarity with the amp might have limited my ability to dial in the tone I was trying to achieve.

    I have two of them in 1X12 open back cabs and love them. Pretty flat EQ and can take the wattage, what's there not to like. Over the years, I've run everything through them from a Blackface Bassman, Demeter TGA-3, Dr. Z Route 66, and currently a Louis Electric Baby Blues Breaker and Demeter TGA-1-D180, and love the clean, overdrive, and flat out fuzz/distortion tones.

    What's the difference between the G12H-100 and G12k-100's?
    I know that the latter are the same as the older G12K-85.
