    What do you want to change? If you want an identical-to-EV sound, Delta Pro (IMHO) is as close as 2 different EVM12-L's are.

    Some say a little less highs, but not in my experience. Mebbe a tiny bit lighter ?

    I'm back to EV's and Delta Pros after much experimentation, can get about any sounds I want/need with just amp EQing---Jazz, funk, to hard rock. PLUS: they just don't blow when the demons of live performance take over.

    Dumb question: if you want something that sounds just like an EVM12L, why not use an EVM12L?

    Not trying to be a smartass.....I'm genuinely curious. Why not just use "the real thing"?

    By the way the reason i was looking for some info on EVM12l is because on Joe Bonamassa use them on his 4x12 cabinets on his Jubilee amps, found some tips to cope his sound with a jubilee 2554 combo and the only thing missing was a some EVM12L speakers..

    That's odd....I can't believe they're fully discontinuing these. They still make the Black Label ones which are basically the same thing. I have 4 in a 4x12 Matamp cab and they're definitely worth the weight.
