First things first: Nextgen are again amazing.
Now: This speaker is very interesting. Its tone is, imho/ime, very dark. Lots of low-end, mids aren't very full and the highs, while present, aren't sparkly or very brilliant either.
I'm not sure I would enjoy this speaker so much by itself (I tried it a bit and it just sounds flat or dark to me). A good re'equing of basically any amp will be necessary.
However, I'm very impressed with the way it sounds in combination with a Governor in my 2x12. It works superbly with the Gov with my 2203, Dual-Rectifier and 6505. The combination of the two (in the room of course) yields a very full and percussive tone. Quite the best of both worlds.
Of course, others will hear things differently. In my case, choosing between this and the Manowar with a Governor has become quite a challenge.
