EA VL110 vs. CXL110

  1. I'm considering one of these two cabs. Other than efficiency, how would you characterize the differences? I'l be driving them with a Roscoe 5 through an ashdown MAG300. Any other little speakers I should consider? The Ampeg PB110 didn't do it for me.

    I know that the CX110 fits perfectly on top of my 112XLT turned on end and it looks really cool. Doesn't sound bad either.

    I had 2 VL-110's which I sold when the CXL-110's came out. I sold one of those and got a CXL-112 when they came out.

    So, I have a bit of history with EA! :hyper:

    I changed to CXL's because of their much greater efficiency. They are something like 2x as loud at the same amp setting. Also a little lighter. The mid-driver on the VL series is very sweet sounding indeed, and I do miss that a bit, but the bottom end is still quite full for such a light and small cab.

    Great customer service as well!

    I also had a pair of VL110's and switched to the CXL110's when they came out and then switched back to the VL110's. Also had the CXL112. Then I bought a Berg HT112 and now I can't listen to the EA stuff. Get a Berg and be done!!
