  1. Ok so I've been searching and searching... I entered "Schroeder Reviews" in the search bar, clicked the "title search" and clicked "sort by relevance". I've also tried a number of different searches and have looked through a BUTT TON of threads. I can really only find all of the other series BESIDES the PL series being reviewed so I thought I'd start a thread for those that own the PL series... A review so that myself AND others checking can get some answers about this series from OWNERS. I have one on order as recommended by Jorg and want to have an idea of what to expect though a 2x12 PL OR ANY PL series for that matter. I'm going to use a 2017 Rickenbacker 4003 through mine and maybe a Fender PJ Special Deluxe if I feel like breaking it out.

    So PLEASE anyone that has a Schroeder PL series cab that feels so inclined... PLEASE chime in. This thread is for an ALL AROUND Schroeder PL series review.

    I use two 15PL cabs in a moderately loud Blues/Soul band. I sometimes will only bring one if FOH is provided. I'm not going to say that these cabs are on the same level as, say, a Barefaced, or Fearful cab, namely, being able to take a lot of watts, but that's not what I was looking for, anyway. The portability, and being able to cut through a mix, chunky enough to keep a nice groove going in groove oriented music like Blues and Soul is what I need, and the Pl's give me that and more, especially when using both cabs. They have a nice low midrange flavor that, yes, is " punchy " ( at least my definition of punchy ), and after trying a bunch of newer designs, including some Greenboy options, the PL cabs were the answer. Definitely a very subjective topic, but there's my two cents. Just for the record, I play a passive, 4 string Jazz with no effects into a Genz Benz Shuttle 12.2.

    I currently have 2-12PL cabs and rarely need both, even in large venues or outdoor festivals.
    They sound great, handle 600 watts each, are very efficient, punchy and crystal clear, 30hz-20khz.
    And all that at only 28 pounds
