My latest adventures in cabinets has left me scratching my...head. two 'great' cabinets loved and celebrated by many. How could I go wrong getting either cab?? EA CXL-112L claims "it offers an extremely accurate and flat audio response. That means you hear exactly what you put into it. There are no colored artifacts - just pure, studio-monitor clarity." Frequency response of 38Hz - 14KHz Aguilar GS-112 Bass Player review says "sounds very deep. Low-note fundamentals sound full and fat with a barbecue sauce-like thickness that extends into the upper midrange." Frequency response of 42 Hz to 16 kHz Now, to me, why would one sound pretty good at first, cxl-112L, and the other sound much better to me, GS-112, after comparing them side by side? Smiley face EQ in the design? Even so, why did the 38hz of the CXL-112L NOT sound as low as the 42hz of the GS-112??? That still puzzles me. In conclusion, have I been brainwarshed by the audio expectations of the big bass, bright treble of my teen year's 'boombox' generation (early 80's)?? I like hi-fi at home, but I still have a sub to augment that sound too! "Big Bottom drive me outta my mind!"
