Eminence Speakers… very good

Posted by on 14 Oct 2008 | Tagged as: Amp/Tubes

I was amazed at the tone my friend got with his very good Carr Amp. I loved the detailed midrange of the amp. Unfortunately I couldn’t connect my Bassman to his speaker easily, so I took a chance and purchased an Eminence speaker that someone from the forum was selling. On paper, the speaker response of the different models look very close. The main differences being the bass and midrange response.

The Legend speaker I got did remind me of the tone of the Wizard – much better midrange than what I am used to getting with my Celestion Greenbacks. It brought out the nice midrange of my guitar, without any of the harsher tones. Based on this, I wouldn’t hesitate to try a Wizard speaker, even though it’s a brighter speaker. So far I am sold on Eminence speakers…. Very good!
