I've been looking at EA stuff. Unfortunately there is none here locally that I can try so everything is "on paper" right now. So far I've settled on the Schertler Pub 2/280 and have one right now on evaluation. I am trying to work out whether the Wizzy or the CXL route is more suited for me if I was to go down the EA route. I've always looked for complete transparency and flat response so it would seem that the CXL is the way to go. An EA dealer I spoke to was suggesting either the CXL-110 or the Wizzy. What I've read is that the Wizzy is a little fuller in the bottom end and has less in the top end because there is no separate tweeter. One thing that is annoying is that the EA amps only have one channel and the effects return is not parallel like the AI heads. In addition to the bass (AMT mic), I often have the need to plug-in a crappy vocal mic to my own rig so that I can address the audience. I need to do this if there is no house PA. I was thinking perhaps of going with the Clarus and the CXL-110 (or the Wizzy cab). The EA dealer thinks the Clarus doesn't have enough headroom and that the CXL-110 will not handle a C extension. I had an AI Series I Coda for a number of years and recently I also had a Series II for a few weeks. I found the Clarus could handle my style of playing without a problem - I just came to hate the sound of the cab. As for the CXL-110 bottom end for an extension, I'm not sure it concerns me all that much. I'd appreciate any thoughts or comments.
