    The speakers behind the Wylde man.

    The original EVM12L 12" loudspeaker was introduced in 1983. Known for its huge tone, gorgeous low-end and incredible stability at extreme volumes, it quickly achieved legendary status. Top guitarists and bassists loved it not only for its sound, but also for its reliability. Tour after tour, the EVM 12L held up to the demands of the most punishing players.

    Enter the EVM-12L Black Label, the official guitar loudspeaker of Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society. Take the EVM-12L, add Zakk's personal specs (improved power handling, improved magnet design, better venting, and the Black Label colors), and now you have the greatest guitar loudspeaker in the world. Wanna argue with Zakk on that? I didn't think so.

    Features
    • 300W power handling
    • Redesigned magnet sructure
    • 100dB Sensitivity
    • 8 ohms
    • 80-7000Hz frequency response

    Great!

    By MS865093930

    from Texas

    Comments about Electro-Voice EVM-12L Black Label 12" Speaker:

    This speaker is made for METAL. I replaced my Peavey 6505's 1-12 Sheffield Speaker with this speaker and I must say, the difference is drastic. I like to overdrive my amps gain, which is maxed out. Before, this combination would muddy up the lows, now, the lows are much more pronounced. Highs scream well through this speaker. All and all, this is a great buy. I would recommend it to every metal guitarist looking to shred.
    It's a well built speaker. Heavy magnet and good power clips.
    Handmade in the USA, doesn't get much better than that.
    It's pricey, but nothing of value in this life is cheap or easy.

    EVM 12L's rock

    By desertbluesman

    from Arizona

    Comments about Electro-Voice EVM-12L Black Label 12" Speaker:

    I have been using EVM 12 L's ever since I bought my first Mesa Boogie Mark II amp around 1980 or so. I kept the speaker when I got rid of the Boogie, and later bought 5 more of them for a larger Boogie amp with 200 watts per side which I sold long ago also. I also kept one of those 5 and still have the two of them to this day, one 300 watt model and one 200 watt OEM model. They are hgreat speakers and my 2 in open back 1-12 cabs will hold up to any 4-12 Celestian loaded cab any time.

    As metal as it gets

    By Brutal Death

    from East Bay, California

    Comments about Electro-Voice EVM-12L Black Label 12" Speaker:

    I am a death metal guitarist. I play a pretty balanced EQ with a slight cut on the mids and an overwhelming amount of gain. I was having trouble with my tone (playing in B standard) and its muddiness. I swapped out my two bottom speakers with these babies and dear god... it was like a gift from the heavens. Extremely clear sound with low tunings and high gain. I would not recommend these speakers to non metal players, but to anyone trying to get a great high volume metal tone, it should be your first choice!

    Holy Zakk

    By Jim Ross

    from Pittsburgh PA

    Comments about Electro-Voice EVM-12L Black Label 12" Speaker:

    Zakk Wylde is not my favorite guitarist. I don't really want to sound like him, and I don't want to play like him; I have my own sound. No disrespect intended to a great guitarist, I just have a different sound. I had, however, heard great things about this speaker. When I finally put one in my cabinet my initial reaction was that divine intervention may have taken place. I was literally captivated by how well this speaker was voiced. I use very little processing and I like my sound to be tight and clear yet powerful. With this speaker I hear everything in the frequency range, and I had to re-EQ because I didn't need to boost specific frequencies any more; they had been there all along but not being reproduced by my old speakers; which were of excellent quality and price. Listen, I know this is an almost $300.00 speaker but it is justified when you get to play through it. After 30+ years of desiring and acquiring I found a speaker that I wouldn't part with... it really is amazing.

    A Speaker With A Sound All Its Own!

    By The Tone Guru

    from Hawthorne, NJ

    Comments about Electro-Voice EVM-12L Black Label 12" Speaker:

    While they are certainly not Celestions these units have a unique sound. These are very heavy speakers due to the massive magnet it uses. NOTE: DO NOT USE IN A PORTED CABINET! I found out too late and my ported Genz Benz G Flex 212 does not work well with these. They need to be in a SEALED NON PORTED cabinet. Once in the right cabinet all I can say is wow! If your forte is cut or scooped mids with unheard of low end that will make your bass player turn green with envy (most metal players) then these are your speakers no doubt! Same goes for R&B and Jazz players. Very warm sound! But for mainstream rock/pop/ top 40 etc these won't cut the mustard and that is why I also have a Marshall 412 loaded with Vintage 30's. Kind of a one trick pony here and expensive as hell but for certain music applications there is no equal. Just know what you are getting into before you buy!
