    Hello there

    Has anyone ever messed around with Altec ER12S in cab or combo?

    Im interested in something high efficiency and I used to love my old Altec in my Super Champ years ago. Not sure how this compares, or if its just not applicable.

    Thanks!

    Just going by pics and weight, voicecoil size it's a 200 wattish EVM competitor. Probably very efficient and loud. Cast frame 19lb. Loud bugger most likely.

    My ‘68 Twin Reverb - an actual 1968 - had a pair of Altecs in it when I bought her. She had wheels too, heaviest 212
    Combo I’ve ever owned. A tech somewhere along the line put a half-power toggle on the back chassis corner, I had the Twin for like two years before noticing it was there.
    Too bad for me it wasn’t a “half the weight switch.”
    :D:D
