2x12: Epifani, Demeter, Aguilar, Avatar?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by kurosawa, Jun 7, 2003.

  1. Would like input from anyone who's personally compared at least two of these 2x12 cabs (yeah, the Demeter 2x12 + 8 is a long shot but maybe someone in here has tried it in their shop). Note: I am currently toying with the choice of running a 200w Mesa Buster Bass head =or= a VTBP-201s with a Carvin DCM1000. TIA, Kurt

    the Bergie's nice, but like alot of 2x12's for me, sounds a little dark and buried, and that gooey Bergie sound sorta gets muddy. BUT cant get enough of two Berg 1x12's together. that extra tweeter seems to add the clarity i need.

    IMHO, nothing beats the Epi for clarity and big bottom ended punch. not a low mid like feel of a 4x10, but a low "kick you as low as it goes punch".

    the Aguilar's midrangey voice is great too, and thankfully, not quite as dark. but doesnt quite have the depth i like. still, i appreciate the lightness.
  4. Looks like it's going to be the Aguilar GS212, mostly because I decided to hang with a Buster Bass head, and Scott Shiraki is gigging a DB359 (also 200 watts) with this cab with good results. Thanks for the help!
  5. I have the SWR 12pack 2x12 cab and as far as I remember I liked it better than the Aguilar I tried in shop. Nobody seems to mention this cab, is it because no one has it or no one likes it?

    I think you'll be happy with the Aggie 212. I love mine, I run it through a DB359, too. It does everything I need it to do.

    I have an EBS 2x12 I really dig (I know it wasn't in the list). Sounds just right for me...
