Are these the same?

If not, does anyone know where I might be able to get any nos EVM12Ls, or even used ones?

Thanks

Hi Lou,

Give me a buzz. 856-489-3434

And, yes, the classic is their reissue of the venerable EVM12L. I have one. The Zakk is supposedly the same as well. Just relabled and called a 300watt speaker since that sounds more powerful.

I have an original sitting in an old Music Man 1/12 combo, sounds KILLER with the TwoRocks and Fuchs. I dig the TwoRock 1/2 cab with their regular 65 speaker slightly more for overdrive, slightly less for cleans. :AOK

It's apparently not the same speaker as the 200-W version, heard from a few sources, including EV contact. It looks the same (same basket likely), but the voice coil and (possibly) cone are different.

Go for the classic. Sounds great, virtually un-blowable, and they did get it right on this one. Wish it was lighter weight, but no-free lunches in speakers or transformers guys.

Old 12-L's pop up on E-bay quite a bit. I've bought from 50 to 150 in the past, prior to EV making the Classic.
Watch out for 12-S and 12-M, which are short and medium throw, not long throw like the L's.

Some SRO's are the same as 12-L's. The ones with the ribbed (for your pleasure) magnet covers. That was more marketing, than functional.

Hey Guys,

I've got a Mesa Boogie 1-12" cabinet from about 1990 that has a Black Shadow speaker made by EV in it. I've always wondered what the exact model was. Could any of you identify the speaker? It says 200 watt, and also EVM on the label. How do I find out if it's a 12 L, a 12 s, or a 12 M?
Any one know what Boogie was using back then?

Thanks for any help you can give.


James
