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 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "EMINENCE PATRIOT 'TEXAS HEAT' KICKS ASS!"
Sound: this speaker is made to rock. eminence's own description is pretty much on the money..excellent, fat midrange, nice clear highs and decent bass response. 'pick' sensitive and endless sustain. 150 watts nominal handling and 300 peak should be enough for any metal freak...i've never broken an eminence speaker! Feature: maybe larger holes in the metal connectors. Ease of Use: screw or bolt it into the hole and connect the wires! if you build your own cabs like me, obviously the materials, interior volume,shape, porting and insulation all have their own effects upon the final sound of any speaker. Quality: finely fit and finished, heavy, solid quality. built for use and abuse. Value: this speaker is a bargain! Manufacturer Support: never needed to contact them for a problem (I believe their speakers are THE BEST), but awhile back, i got a pair of near-new 12" eminence speakers on Ebay. the seller didn't know what model they were, so i sent eminence an email telling them the serial # and that i thought they might be V12's. a day later i got a very polite answer saying they were indeed V12's and they were made in 2001. Frankly, since i didn't buy these new, i figured they wouldn't even bother answering me, but this proved to me that THIS IS A COMPANY WITH CLASS and they go the extra mile for their customers! The Wow Factor: the tone that can be squeezed from this speaker is indeed a sexual thing... Overall: any good speaker only gets better the more it gets 'broken in'. i don't forsee blowing it up, ever. beyond excellent tone, i also want a good deal..this speaker is definitely that. can't really think of anything to complain about it.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
