An EV style Thiele cab won't sound anything like a Meyer. It's a completely different beast, very much a midrangey cabinet and isn't much lighter in comparison to the amount of low end you'll get. If you want to go lighter and retain some of the hifi sound, the only one I've heard do it is the fEARful. Last night at the Boulder Theater my rig was the backline and bass player after bass player raved about the sound (The F2B and Grace M103 didn't hurt).ugly rumor wrote:I have used Meyer for a number of years, and can attest that there is NOTHING like them. I use a 15 in a Fender cabinet, and couple with a 4 X 10 Hughes and Kettner (Eminence), and the tone is incredible with my Gibson RD-77 Artist. No other effects, Thunderfunk amp, all I need. A Meyer speaker is about 25% heavier than most comparable speakers, and I have been looking for a Thiele Electro-Voice cabinet to try to lose weight, if there is no sacrifice in tone.

The forums there are great. There are also a bunch of other designs Greenboy has done that are discussed in the forums and a few of them look very interesting.
