I was a bit disappointed with this speaker. I found the high end a bit thin. Sounds pretty good but I far prefer the Eminence Alessandro GA - ca1964. Though not quite as bright it has a way fuller sound. Bit more expensive but worth it. The Legend is average IMHO.
The Legend 1258 is a great-sounding, reliable speaker in anything where you want the classic/ vintage FMIC sound without the heavy price tag of a Weber or Jensen. Rated at 75 watts, you're unlikely to ever blow one as long as you don't try and crank a Twin into a 1X12 cab.
Legend 1258s lack the fancy labels and snazzy names of other Eminence speakers, but make no mistake -- these are solid reliable drivers that work great in any vintage or vintage-style amp where you want a smooth, well-rounded tone. Don't let the cheap price tag put you these are any less worthy of the Eminence name.
Everything in the one-line description is accurate. A really tasty sound, defined and nuanced but good and ballsy. Makes my very low wattage amp sound like a (much, much quieter) silver face Twin. A great American tone and unbeatable for the money.
