The Neo Creamback is every ounce a Classic Celestion, delivering all the magical tone you’d get from a traditional Creamback. The difference is, it’s built with a neodymium magnet: making this speaker around half the weight of a traditional ceramic magnet speaker.Celestion’s engineers have developed a new and innovative way to better harness the mighty forces of the neodymium magnet, enabling us to create a guitar speaker that can deliver authentic Creamback tone with ease, while preserving the benefit of neodymium’s much lighter weight.You still get the low end punch, warm, vocal midrange and sweet refined highs the Creamback is famous for: push it hard and enjoy the ‘race-car growl’ that sets pulses racing. But pick up a cab that’s loaded with Neo Creambacks and you’ll see what makes this speaker truly different.

I wanted to try a neodymium speaker in my Bogner oversize 212 because of weight. I've never been a big fan of Celestions, preferring a flatter, cleaner speaker, but 40 lbs worth of EVM12L were catching up to me in my old age.
So, the long and short of it is that the speakers sound great with my amps (Bogner and Soldano), and I've shaved (literally) 30 lbs off the weight of my cabinet. I haven't yet gigged with them, nor really properly broken them in yet, but I'm definitely not disappointed. I've also ordered a pair of the Celestion neo Vintage speakers, so I'll be able to compare.
