I've been messing around with EVM 12L speakers and not sure I really like them. They seem to do fine if you have the pre-amp cranked up and not really putting any serious power to them. The problem is when they get overdriven and break up on the clean channel, especially when hitting the #6 E string hard, they seem to have a farty distortion going on. I thought maybe at first the speaker was hitting the grill baffle or cloth, so I removed it, but the same farty breakup happens. I then switched to a second EVM12L that I had, but the same thing. It's a bummer because up until that point, they are great sounding speakers. They are cast framed, built like a tank, and are rated for 200 Watts, but I'm only pushing them with a measly 100w amp.
