I replaced the Celestion Seventy 80 of my Traynor YCV-40 with this speaker. Night and day! From darkness to light! I had to turn down the the mids and trebles a lot. It went from a B.B. King tone (with the Seventy 80) to and SRV tone on the clean channel. That was exactly what I was looking for. On the overdrive channel, now the tone is more alive, sound more saturated, warmer, more rock.
I really like this speaker. I pair it with a Swamp Thang in a 2x12 open-backed cabinet. It really helps to round out the sound. It does take a bit to break in to soften the peaks. but once it does, the above-noted pairing is incredible.
I love it in my mesa. Takes the harshness out of the amp.
I've bought this brand of speaker in past and each time they deliver exactly what I'm looking for . Do your homework ! Speakers are the end result of your musical expression .. Your thought >Your hands> your guitar >your amp >your speaker figure out what you want to say and Eminence has a speaker for you to say it .
