Epifani 4x10UL or two 1x12UL

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Christian Houmann, Oct 5, 2004.

  1. I'm going to buy new cabs and I like Epifani alot.
    I had decide to go with the 4x10 and then sell my EBS 4x10. But I have heard so many good things about Epifani 1x12 so now I thinking about getting the two 1x12UL and keep my EBS and maybe later have a Epi 4x10.

    I really like 4x10 but it is still a big cab and two 1x12 is more handy. I have a Epi 2x10 so I can run the 1x12's with the 2x10.

    Should I get the 4x10 or two 1x12's?

    Does anyone use two Epi 1x12UL?

    I used two T112's for a long time and I always loved that set-up. It threw enough air for just about any gig and it was so incredibly portable. I also liked the flexibility of being able to bring a single 12 to a small gig or rehearsal.

    Lately I've been using an Epifani 212 and 210UL separately depending upon the needs of the gig.

    I have used the Epi 4x10 NYC for a while, now I have switched to Epi 1x12 UL + Epi 2x10 UL. The 4x10 was a bit too "direct" to my liking, the combination of 12'' and 10'' gives me a broader, warmer sound without losing the clarity that Epifani is famous for. Besides, the 4x10 is one big mother to haul around, now I take along only the 12'' for smaller gigs. I would definitely recommend to test the 4x10 directly against 112+210 or 212+210 before making your decision.

    I really like the sound of the T-112 with a T-110UL. I had considered a T-112/T-210UL, but to my ears, the T-110UL has just a bit more of the upper midrange articulation and presence (as compared to the T-210UL) that I feel is shy in the T-112. But, the T-110UL doesn't move as much air. So, when a screaming deal on a used T-112 came up, I picked up a second. The T-112/T-112/T-110UL rig certainly moved enough air, but was a bit low-mid heavy. Then another deal on a used T-110UL came up, and let me tell you that two T-112's and two T-110UL's together are mind-blowingly good! I find that this setup is more balanced, clear, and articulate across the board than any other Epi setup I have heard.

    So, I'm not sure how helpful it is, but there's my two cents, regardless. ;)
  5. I think I will go with the two 1x12s and maybe get 4x10 when the money is right. I'm not sure if it should be the NYC or UL. Price is no issue only the weight. I just want the best cab :cool:
    Maybe I will pair them with one of Epifani new amps.
    Anyone know if 502-UL can be put into a rack?
