I have been doing a lot of listening these past few days and have found that I really like the sound of the EZG through 12 inch speakers. I have a 2 12 open back cab that is currently loaded with G12H30s. I'm thinking about changing one of them to a G-12-65 based on Docs recommendation.
Have any of you tried this combination with the Evan? Let me know what you think

I still love the 10's, just ordered a 2x10 for my smaller gigs, i use the 4x10 when i need the extra fire power. From what i can gather the G-12-65 is great if you want to try the 12. Airbrakes are pretty handy with these too!
I had tried the EZG with a Fender Dual Showman 2x15, an early '90's Mesa 4x10, and a Dr. Z 2x10 convertible cab. It sounded the best through the 4x10, but didn't look all that great, as the head is blonde and the Mesa cab is black. When I spotted the Carvin tweed for sale, I had to get it, as the looks are much closer. It was a good move. It's got the balance of bass & treble I was looking for to let the EZG sing. The Carvin VL 10 speakers sound great. I'm impressed. The cab's in excellent shape. Too bad they don't make it anymore.

i use the Chicago 12 in my Dr. Z 1x12 convertible and it's great open or closed. but i generally i use it as an open back. when i bought my EZG i sent Ted Weber and email and asked what he thought would be the best match for the EZG and a 1x12 cab, and he directed me towards the Chicago 12. so this isn't just my recommendation, it's really Ted's and i'm just passing on the info 'cause he was right on the money. i think they are $100 plus shipping if you buy it directly through the Ted Weber web site. take care.
I use my head with a 1X12 cabinet and a 2X10 cabinet running together and it is the best of both worlds. Both cabs are the older style Z-Cabs so the whole setup isn't too big.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
