So I have a Peavey 412MS cab with the stock Sheffield 1290 speakers in it. I decided to send Peavey an e-mail to see what these speakers are closest in sound to with the current speakers on the market today, or what they designed the speakers to sound like, and this is their reply:
The closest one Peavey offers in the 6505 speaker. The Sheffield 1290 was modeled after a Celestion High Powered 70."
I've never heard of a Celestion High Powered 70, anybody know what speaker they are referring to? If so, is that actually a GOOD speaker for the Sheffields to be compared with?
the only 70 im aware of celestion doing any time recently is the ML70, which is like the donkey ballsack of speakers
