I hate to provide a vague response, but I recommend tuning them to a range that fits your preferences. I've heard some guys play EC2S clears up much higher than I would tend to use them and I've been quite impressed. One of my favorite things is seeing/hearing people use heads outside of the confines of what I we might typically recommend them for. Getting creative with head combinations and tuning is how we all learn more about getting the sounds we're looking for and discover sounds we've never thought of.

To get back to your question though, I would personally tune an EC2S lower than a G2 since I looking for a lower sound out of them with a bit of punch.
Carlock did. Anton Fig did. Kenny Aronoff did. Join the revolution! Evans Level 360.
