Guitar Center had a well-used Euphonic Audio VL-110 for a Peavey price. How could I say no? After previously owning VL-208s and a Wizzy 10, my main box for the past couple of years has been a Wizzy 12. I was curious to scope the W12 side-by-each with the VL-110, each driven by my Underwood --> 1985 Walter Woods MI-225 setup. Quantity-wise, the 8-Ohm VL-110 specs as 95 dB at 1W/1m. The 4-Ohm W12 specs as 103 dB. 8 decibels is something you notice right away. I rarely turn the master volume up to 12pm with the W12. Providing stage monitor for a 16-piece band last night, the VL-110 was run at about 1pm. Sonically, I'm glad to have a VL box back in the house. The W12 is a great-sounding unit with a certain "forward" characteristic to the sound -- it's all on the table; I don't get the feeling that there's anything holding back. The VL-110 sounds smoother. Even driving the big band with C-extension excursions, the feeling is, "There's more. Don't you worry." It's also very nice to have the individual tweeter and midrange rheostats. (Tweeter is just about off; mid is rolled back to around 1pm. I'm not done tweaking the mid-range.) I ran VL-208s for 10+ years. The VL-208 was the ultimate in high-fidelity sound for my ear. The VL-110 is not quite that smooth but I suspect that most or all of the difference is lost in a performance setting. On top of that the VL-208 is too heavy for one-tripping and even today it's pretty expensive. At this point I'm keeping both the W12 and the VL-110. If I had to keep one, it would be hard to say right now. Choices are what makes the worm turn . . .
