For over 20 years, EV's have been my favorite guitar speaker. Although I know that everyone has their own preferences, I think the EVM 12L is the best guitar speaker ever made. No other guitar speaker is as crisp and articulate with highs--it DOES NOT break up like others do (I know some people like that) so high harmonic squeals and playing fast high on the neck results in clean, articulate notes - with or without distortion. And the bottom is BIG and tight sounding. With its large voice coil, cast aluminum basket and 19 pound magnet - the EVM 12L is the preferred choice of many a guitarist. They were the ultimate high end option for Mesa Boogie. Unfortunately, EV has discontinued the EVM 12L and as far as I know, is not making ANY guitar speakers. I understand that the JBL E-120 has also been discontinued. Is either EV or JBL making guitar speakers anymore and if not, why not? Anybody got the scoop?
