    I am planning purchasing a pair of Euphonic Audio CXL-110s to go with the pair of GS112s I already have. I believe this will be one of the final pieces of my super-duper modular rig. I love my GS112s, but I would like to get some of the speed and punch of a 10". My goal is to get optimum flexibility and kick-a$$ tone out of my rig. I would like the option to pair a CXL-110 with a GS112, or use all cabs simultaneously. I am picking the CXL-110 because it is voiced a little higher than the GS-112, has similar power handling(Ag 300W, EA 350W), and similar speaker sensitivity(Ag 102, EA 103). Power is not an issue for me since I have plenty of it (Peavey DPC1000 and Stewart PA1400).

    How do think this set up will work/sound? Has anyone done something like this before? If so, what were your results like?

    BTW,does anyone know if the EA has a "thru jack". I know that it has a speakon and 1/4", but don't know if they can function as a "thru"

    Thanks in advance

    I had two CXL-110s and they DO NOT have thru plug unless you can use the XLR or 1/4 as a thru. they only had one of each on each cab. I had performance problems with my 110s so I'm upgrading to the 112. I'd love to hear GS112s. in case I don't like the cxl112.

    I think that would be as killer rig. I tried something similar by mixing my Euphonic and Bag cabinets and it was a great tone....a nice mix of two excellent cabinets. I think you would get the same good results with a EA/Aggie rig.The only thing I would suggest though is think about the EA CXL112 rather than the 10. It's a lot more flexible.

    Both plugs on the EA are thru plugs. I know, because that's how I use mine with an Aguilar GS112. I run a speakon to speakon from my Ampeg Portabass 250 to the EA CXL110, and then a 1/4" to Speakon from the EA to the Aguilar. It works great, and sounds fantastic!

    I always loved the way the Aguilar sounded by itself, but adding the CXL110 really added some punch to the tone.

    I play with both a blues band, and a jazz band and the rig works great with both. My guitar players use realistic sound levels, so that certainly helps. I have, however, managed to compete with a 4x12 stack with this rig, too.

    It's lightweight, and doesn't take up too much of a footprint when stack like this:

    And, it works equally well with both electric, and upright.

    Go for it. As long as you are not looking for insanely high volume levels, you'll be pleased, I think.
