Why are so many of the amp/speaker companies slow to pick up on the (sort of) recent phenomenon of the 12" speaker for bass? Reading this forum leads me to believe that a LOT of bassists love 12s. And I'm one of them! I'm not so young and naive to not understand the conservative nature of manufacturing, but really, this has been going on for some time. Sure there are some models from some companies, but not nearly enough IMO. And while I'm on this rant: MORE NEODYMIUM, please. Thoughts? Opinions? Manufacturers -- are you listening?
