    I've had these for a couple days now but never posted a thread yet due to work, school, and playing lol. I needed a speaker to replace the stock Peavey Blue Marvel in my cab since it sounded like a bag of fried assholes. Even that analogy is too generous because at least assholes have...

    Just a basic review for anyone that might be interested in new speakers (or probably the 4-5 silent googlers that will find this looking for reviews haha), I've experimented a lot so this is all from my personal experience. The winners so far are the combination of 2x Celestions "Hot 100"...

    Hey guys, I'm back (not that anyone remembers me hahaha) so I followed advice and spent more time playing guitar than talking about it BUT I need advice from the best, once again. So I decided (for some stupid reason) to downsize my gear because HEY I rarely play on full stacks live and jamming...

    How are Eminence Swamp Thangs for metal? I want to combine with 2 V30's in a 4X12 and hope to thicken and add additional l low end and chunk for palm mutes. Anyone have experience running both V30's and Swamp Thangs? Their sb sensitivity looks close so I am depending on that and a guy feeling...

    Anybody got some experience with these? I'm thinking about trying a new X-pattern in one of my 4x12. I like the thump and loudness of the Celestion mix, but I heard the Eminence mix could do the same with less speaker breakup. What about Celestion G12 65 or Greenbacks?

    Hey, I have a Vader 4x12 but I'm looking for a cab with a wider mid-projection (vader is very beamy), and I figured a front loaded cab would be best for that as they tend to project more. NOMADES was a boutique company in Quebec (Canada) and from what I gathered those cabs were outstanding. I...

    Has anyone tried that combo and have any comments? I am looking for something for a Blackstar ID:60 head as well as a Blackstar HT-40, for now, and possibly something else in the future. I play mostly 80's and 90's rock, such as GNR, Motley Crue, Poison, Stone Temple Pilots, some Skynyrd. Does...

    I am in the process of updating my toanz and was considering changing my speakers. I've done quite a bit of research and I've all but decided. However I am stuck between two options. Option 1 is 2 wgs hm75's and 2 wgs veteran 30's and option 2 is 2 eminence swamp thangs and 2 eminence texas...

    Got two fine gents on CL interested in my pair of Governors (V30 clones). A) One guy is offering $75 for the pair. B) Other guy is offering to trade two Wizards, straight up. I'd dig the $75, but leaning towards checking out the Wizards. Thoughts? Worth my time?

    In a CraigsList anomaly, I managed to sell a pair of 16ohm Swamp Thangs for what it cost to pickup a pair of 16ohm Governors, in the same night, in the same city :lol: So far, I vastly prefer the V30's in my Sovtek 4x12. The V30's in my Avatar 2x12 are probably about the same. I was looking...

    I'm a Celestion guy I'll admit it. But I got a chance to record two different Eminence speakers using the Nomades Hellhound 2x12 cab. Personal favorite; the Governor for sure. If interested, here's the video. If not? Move along...

    Clean pair of Eminence 8ohm Modeling 12 Speakers. These are used in Vader cabs and in fact these were pulled from a vader cab. Both 8 ohms and 120W a piece. These are great warm speakers with a monstrous punch on the low and low mids. Quite a lot of references on here,

    I'm thinking of throwing something a bit more British-flavored into my DC-5. The clips I've heard of a Mark V into a V30 I've preferred over the C90, as well as Recto clips. Another speaker on my radar is the Legend V128 (120w). Which of these two is the best choice for a rock speaker in a...

    saw this video earlier today, and thought it was pretty neat. probably more expensive than an attenuator box would be; especially used, to equip a normal person's rig. although this would be a good option for somebody like me who only has a single 1x12 cabinet in an apartment.

    Is there one? If not, what Eminence would be good for progressive rock, sometimes venturing into metal? I hate speaker buying. It's like buying a pickup. You never know exactly how it'll sound until you buy it and install it.

    I've got a fender reissue Sunn 4x12 412L 16 ohm 300 watt cabinet, and im thinking of putting new speakers in it.
