Engl E412XXL Hydra


The ENGL® E412XXL Hydra is an official capture from ENGL® Amps inspired by an E412XXL 4×12” cabinet, outfitted with a quartet of Electro-Voice® EVM12L Drivers.

Seeking tone that’s oozing with titan-grade vibe? ENGL®®’s Hydra Series is your first – and final – destination! Take it from us: few drivers have reached “tone-champion” status – the classic-inspired Electro-Voice® EVM12L is one such speaker.

Genuine heavyweight sonics? Yes Sir!
The perfect speaker to get the purest tone your companion amp has to offer? You’d better believe it!
A capture that should be in any tone chaser’s arsenal? That’s a three-for-three right there!

Pushing iconic punch, muted upper mids, buttery-smooth highs and a well defined low-end – lest we forget a mighty 200W of high-performance power handling and an expertly tuned semi-flat frequency response – it’s no wonder the EVM12L is a firm favourite of Tier-1 guitar legends including Joe Bonamasa, Zakk Wylde and Carlos Santana! When you’re in need of larger-than-life sonics, the ENGL® E412XXL 4×12” cabinet delivers on all counts – there’s precision, boat-loads of power and exquisite dispersion that all combine for a unique slant on the legendary prowess of the EVM12L.

It’s a stone hard fact: If ENGL® puts their name on it, it meets their exacting standards when it comes to the all-important tone department. The ENGL® E412XXL Hydra has been expertly captured using an in-demand collection of mics and is available individually, or as part of, the ‘ENGL® Presets Hydra’ DynIR cabinet collection.
