    This think totally rocks. Not sure what speaker is in it. Harry J sent it to me for a trial. I'll do a few clips this weekend. I'm knocked out with it. Gotta find out what's in it and get one for myself.

    I have one. Mine has an EVM12L. That is what Alf designed the Thiele parameters for I believe. I rolled it with several other speakers but preferred the EVM in it. Nice cab for sure!!

    You should try to get a hold of a Port City Wave 1-12 and A/B them. I suspect a lot of people would be interested in that comparison.

    not sure I'll have this long enough to do a comparison unless alf sells it to me. This is the loaner cab that's been going around though I am going to see if I can buy it. It doesn't sound as bright as my TR112 cab with an EV though that's open back...

    I owned both of these cabs and played them side by side w/ a 2007 Fuchs ODS 50......I used a EV12L .....I though that the Hermida sounded best. Both were good, but that Hermida Zcab was real nice and had more bottom. I suppose the results could be different w/ different amps. I am going to try his 2x12 open back....
    Jack, these are front loaded cabs. I like the way they are easy to swap speakers.

    I've got one of his 2x12 ported cabs on order (paid for), (**edit-Emails caught in his spam folder, returned PM in a day)

    Anyone know how to get a hold of him?

    I've got the 1x12 ported cab with a Scumnico in it. Huge tone.

    I have a Port City 1X12 also. I need to put my other EVM in it to make a fair comparison!! The Port City is a nice box as well. A little darker I think?

    True, I found the PC 2x12 to be a dark sounding cab. Even tried the OS 2x12 but passed it on.

    Just talked to alf and i'm buying the demo cab. I found out my new Hermida cab as a G1265 speaker in it. Guess I was wrong about that speaker. I wonder why it they sounded so dark before? Could it be the open back cab I had them in? Counterfeit? Thoughts?
