Product Description

Many other manufacturers have tried to recreate the Celestion Blue sound in a higherpowered driver, and some have come close. But only Celestion has the experience and know-how to emulate the tone and response of its own, Alnico classic in a modern driver that's perfect for single or multiple applications in cabinets or combos.

What limited the power handling of the Original Blue was the material used in the construction of the voice coil.

However, after hundreds of hours of testing and countless prototypes, Celestion has developed a coil that can withstand higher levels of power but leaves the tone unaffected.

Such a relatively simple, yet important development, lies at the heart of a truly remarkable guitar loudspeaker.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Celestion products.

4.5 out of 5 (24 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Amazing upgrade for my Flextone II"
Sound: The clarity is amazing at all volume levels. They also have one of the tightest attacks making them great for blues and jazz. The pair I got replaced the Line 6 speakers that came in my Flextone II, and these sound hundreds of times better, and they handle every amp model with pristine tone and clarity. Quality: Definitely one of the best sounding speakers for guitarist. Celestions pressed steal construction and higher quality voice-coil should give you a lifetime of great tone if matched to the right power. Value: These speakers are full of value. Well worth the price. Most of Celestion products hold a great value but these are one of the best. I was torn between this and the greenbacks, but I'm glad I got these. After hearing them I'd definitely be willing to pay more than what I did for them. Overall: Great product for a good price, from a great company. Overall I'm very satisfied with these speakers and I will be for some time. They brought new life into my older Flextone II, and I look forward to many more years of enjoyment.

"TOP OF THE LINE AND WORTH EVERY PENNY"
Sound: THESE SPEAKERS HAVE THE BEST OVERALL TONE OF ANY SPEAKERS I HAVE OWNED (AND I'VE OWNED MANY). THEY HAVE A BEEFY SOUND THAT CARRIES FULL RANGE WITHOUT ANY SHRILLNESS OR EAR FATIGUE. THEY OPERATE WELL AT ALL VOLUMES, CLEAN OR OVERDRIVEN. WHEN OVERDRIVEN (I USE A MESA HEAD) THEY JUST BLOW THE ROOF OFF THE DUMP. BEST SPEAKERS EVER, AND WORTH THE OUTSIZED CELESTION PRICE. Ease of Use: JUST SCREW THEM DOWN AND PLUG IN...AAAAHHHHH, THE POWER OF TONE! Quality: FLAWLESS. I HAVE HAULED THEM ALL OVER THE LANDSCAPE AND HAVE USED THEM NOW IN THREE-FOUR DIFFERENT CABS WITH NO PROBLEMS. Value: NOTHING CELESTION PRODUCES WOULD BE CONSIDERED VALUE--TO GET THE BEST, YA GOTTA PAY FOR IT. AND YOU DO WITH THESE, BUT WELL WORTH IT! The Wow Factor: TONE RULES, AND THESE PRODUCE THE MOST DESIRABLE TONE EVER. Overall: I BELIEVE THESE ARE THE LAST SPEAKERS I'LL EVER NEED.
Style of Music: CLASSIC ROCK & BLUES
