    I’m looking at this listing for a Twin at a shop about an hour from me, and I’ve never seen these speakers before. It’s a Fender branded, cast frame, aluminum dome 12” with a center vent. It basically looks like an EV12M with a Fender sticker on it. I know that EV made a speaker for Fender during the Rivera period that was a 12F, but I have never seen one with the blue Fender sticker.

    The pertinent photos aren’t great, but if anyone has some insight, I’m interested. Probably not a buyer on this amp, but I like to learn/know things.

    Here’s the link to the listing:

    EVMs have a slightly smaller magnet than EVLs, which reduces power handling slightly. Either one could still probably comfortably handle that amp's power.

    Defcon 4 sound level......

    A little more internet research says that it’s probably mostly an EV12S, which I guess has a deeper basket. Here is what a TGP user found in an old EV service manual:

    The EVM-12F shares the same cone and voice coil as the EVM-12S-Series II. The spider is shared with the Force 12, DL-15M, DL-15W and a few others.’ And it has an aluminium dome, of course.
