Actually, I think much of the bass can be "dialed out" via the amp. What cannot be are the fuller,more balanced mids - particularly the lower mids - but what can I say, this is actually among the aspects of the speaker I like the most.

FWIW, I've known folks to put the Jensen Neos in a twin cabinet and they've been very happy with the results.
No prob! But from what I've read here and elsewhere, I think the closest current neo candidate is the Weber NeoMag and, like I said up front, I dig the way mine sounds but it just seems like cone cry and Weber go together like pancakes and syrup.
P.S. I read on some other forums where some folks compared the Jensen Neo 12-100 to how an EV sounds. I really can't comment, though, I sold the last amp I had with one (a Rivera-era Fender Concert) a decade and a half ago.
