Eminence 820H Patriot Guitar Speaker (20 Watts, 8")

Set your tone free. The 8-inch hemp cone of the Patriot speaker pushes out a thick sound full of punchy lows and warm-yet-defined highs and mids.

Featuring a hemp cone, 1" voice coil and lightweight 15 oz. ceramic magnet, the 4 ohm Eminence 820H Patriot Guitar Speaker offers a rich, warm, full bodied tone that emulates a larger cone, with fat, punchy lows, smooth, but defined highs, and a nice break up. The 820H also offers prominent mids, but with a warm, smooth texture.

"There are a lot of 8" amplifiers on the market, but very few have a speaker capable of delivering quality tone." said Anthony Lucas, Eminence tech support specialist. "The 820H sounds nearly like a 10" speaker and doesn't break up too early or fall apart like other 8" speakers I've heard. It could enhance the tone in any suitable amplifier on the market, and is actually the first 8" speaker I've ever heard that I consider worthy of putting in something like a vintage Fender Champ."

I made a 4 x 8 angled cab, and filled it with these, and compared to what I have in my 4 x 10 (Jensons "vintagey" cermamic.) and my 4 x 12 (stock 1960A Marshall which has Celestion seventy-80s I think.) These are my favorite.These 820h speakers have the best, and most natural sound for the CLEAN if anything I have. They have a clean sound that sounds super, super, nice at a pracrical volume and that is what I feel these should be known for. They sound equally good with Fender single coil and with Gibson humbuckers alike. I'm a clean only person. (I feel like an alien.) And can only remark on that really. But so good.I've mostly been running them mostly with my Marshall DSL100. Though it sounds the best on my Fender Bassman 100T. (I have to rewire it for ohmage each time. Need to add jumpers...) Through my Orange Micro Terror Dark these little speakers sounds rather great-good but a little muffled-ey like -Ish. But totally worth it. I'm also happy with the sound of them through my XXL solid state. If it's helpful to know what I have tested them on.These have a way with words compared to my current other speakers. Rather excellent expressiveness that is just hard to explain. Its my benchmark to be how I want my other cabs to respond. I would most assuredly recommend a person make a 4x8 with these.I'm not sure why they aren't a staple speaker in thier own right. For quality 4x sound at practice volumes. These ARE a no-brainer. Hope this helps.
