Specifications

Impedance: 8 or 16 ohms

Voice Coil Diameter: 1.75 in (44.5 mm)

Coil Material: Copper

Flat/Round Coil Wire: Round

Coil Former Material: Nomex

Basket Type: Stamped

Cone Surround Material: Paper

Usable Bandwidth (Fs to -3dB): 70Hz - 5.5kHz

SPL*: 102dB

* = Published sensitivity is an average of multiple points representing the measured output of the device (1W-1m) across the usable frequency range from 200Hz-5kHz.

** = EIA 426A noise source and test standard. Eminence voice coil technology often results in guitar speakers that dramatically exceed the power rating of other manufacturer's products. Such ratings are not meant to imply the Eminence woofers are not equally suitable for lower-power "Class A" valve amplifiers as they are for high gain valve and transistor amplification.

Mounting Information

Nominal Basket Diameter: 12.02 in. (305.2 mm)

Baffle Hole Diameter: 10.97 in. (278.6 mm)

Important Note

Watts: The guaranteed long term power rating throughout the usable frequency range of the speaker.

(Translation: the speaker will operate continuously at any frequency within the speakers specified frequency range when driven at this power. The "Watts" rating is similar to RMS, but is really more indicative of long term thermal capability.)

Music Program: The speaker will safely and reliably handle the varying frequencies of musical content at this power rating. The "Music Program" rating is more indicative of what you can expect in the real world with the speaker operating within the appropriate enclosure reproducing music or vocal audio program.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (23 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Sounds great with Mesa Mini Rectifier!"
Overall: I upgraded a Bugera 2x12 cabinet with this speaker and an Eminence Man O War because I was very unhappy with the original speakers with my Mesa mini rec head. I bought this speaker to cover the high end of the duo and am very happy. It sounds GREAT! It's a lot louder than original speakers and keeps all the detail of my head and guitar without the fizzy hissing. It's not even broken in yet but sounds excellent. I have only used the rig in one live show so far but it did very well, plenty loud and very impressive sound quality. I'm now a hands down Eminence fan! I did my homework regarding what I wanted with my setup and it payed off, couldn't have asked for a more spot on sound for what I was looking for and the price was also very impressive!
Style of Music: various styles but definitely a lot of rock and hard rock.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Like a V30, only better !"
Sound: This speaker performs like a more controlled Celestion V30. It has tight lows, a scooped but solid midrange and a top end that has bite without being harsh. What I like about the governor over the Celestion V30 is that the Governor handles more power and has a similar tone only better sounding in the midrange.The Celestion has a peak in the midrange that isn't so pleasant whereas the governor has a smoother transition from midrange to treble.I like to get my crunch from my amp rather than my speakers so these governors are a home run for me.V30 tone only better and more power handling and lower cost. Feature: Comes with a pick and a sticker.Good enough Ease of Use: It's a speaker and as such, needs to be used so that it can naturally break in.After they break in, they sound very nice Quality: So far, the Eminence speakers seem ot be better made than the CHinese Celestions and are less expensive.I'm impressed so far. Value: I suppose vintage gear guys want low wattage speakers and as such, might stick with Celestion Greenbacks or G12H30's but I don't like speaker breakup really and love the celestion based sounds with greater power handling and I love Eminence's lower prices. Manufacturer Support: Eminence returns emails which is rare for most music gear companies. They offer a good PDF that compares all the specs of their speaker line.I'd like to see sound samples of their speakers though.Celestions website offers samples which aren't all that accurate but the ydo help. The Wow Factor: The speaker is a magnet with voice coil and dust cover.But Eminence took the time to make a nice box for it and a nice label.But once it's inside the cabinet, that doesn't matter. Only sound and performance matters. Overall: Excellent value in this speaker. I think it outperforms the celestion V30. It seems to be as solid or more solid than Celestions speakers.I don't plan on buying any more celestions.And I don't see how this speaker could be much more improved really.
Style of Music: blues, jazz, progresive rock and metal
