I'm aware of three speakers that are meant to be similar to the EVM12L: 1) Eminence Legend EM12 2) Weber Michigan 3) Warehouse WGS12L I've never played an actual EV for any length of time (one gig with a Mark III, and fooling around with a couple of Twins), so I'm not sure exactly what I'd be missing out on by going for something "close." Who has experience with any of these speakers? Can any of you compare them with an actual EV? Do any of them have glaring weaknesses I should be aware of? What other speakers in the EV camp should I be considering? Do you have recommendations for something altogether different you think I should consider? If so, feel free to tell me why... The plan in the not too distant future would be to put it in an EV-spec Thiele-ported cab, but for the time being, it would be going in a traditional 112 with a semi-open back. It would see duty with my Maz 18 Reverb and a soon-to-be-ordered Quilter MicroPro Mach2. I'm hoping the Quilter could pull double-duty as an acoustic amp for 25% of the duo set I'll be doing. The EV-like speaker should provide wide enough frequency response to sound reasonably natural on the acoustic stuff and really shine on the clean electric sounds that will be the primary accompaniment to my friend's acoustic playing, while the Quilter will hopefully eliminate stage volume issues when we're in coffeehouses or restaurant settings and are always difficult for a self-contained duo working primarily with an acoustic.
