JBL E120 on Mark III

Post by Mark3Boogie » Thu Jul 13, 2017 6:58 am

Hi guys, i have a Mark III Green Stripe loaded with EV12 speaker and i wondering how the amp sound with a JBL E120 Hemp speaker.
What are the difference between the two speaker? Is the JBL mellower and creamier then EV12?
Another question is : do you know if all the JBL E120 cone are made of Hemp material?
Thank for the replies.

I had a cab with 2 JBL D-120F's and I prefer the EV's. The JBL's were awesome especially clean but, were just a little too loose in the low end. I ran the Cab with a Mark iii Coliseum which has a buttload of low end though. So, that could be significant.
I also, have a Mark iii Black Dot w/Red Stripe upgrade in a Imbuya Cab and I use a WGS ET-90 and I can promise you I will never use another speaker for that cab again. STRAIGHT BUTTER, like Bacon for your ears man!
