"Great Speakers, Great Sound!!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I will be satisfied with these speakers for a long time and don't plan on replacing them anytime soon.
First of all let me just say that the sound of these speakers are incredible. The amp I play through is a Marshall AVT 150 with a cabinet that orignally had Celestion G12L's, and let me say those Celestions were crap compared to the Governors. As soon as the Governors were installed, it gave my AVT 150 a sound that I never thought it could make. The Governors gave the amp a warmer, deeper sound. It also gave the sound more bass and a raspier tone. Unlike the Celestions that had a lot of treble and was ear pierceing with no absolute low end to the sound. The Red Coats gave my amp a more fuller sound and much more rounded. Let me say I also am a big Guns N' Roses fan, and a Slash fan. I always wanted that "Appetite For Destruction" sound, and i got it with these speakers. These speakers are like Vintage 30's but better, and made in the U.S.A. not China. I give the sound a 9 beacause really nothing is perfect.
The Speakers came well protected in the box and included some guitar picks and a type of Eminence label to put on your amp cab. Really the picks and label weren't really needed, but it was nice of Eminence to include those things anyhow.
Ease of Use
These speakers sound great out of the box. It is really easy to a great tone and the sound changes a lot with little adjustments on the knobs. Very versatile speakers, when it comes to getting sounds.
The speakers are made very well. They are very heavy, and magnets are huge with included dust covers. The Governors have a red finish and look really cool in the cab. But best of all, they are American made and have a 7 year warranty.
These speakers are worth their price compared to others such as Celestions. The Governors are cheaper in price, made better, sound just as good if not better and are made in America. Not in China. I bought these speakers not only because they are better, but to keep Americans working.
I have never had to deal with the company. Never had any trouble with the speakers. The way these are made, I probably will never need support.
The Wow Factor
They're just speakers, it's all about the sound, not the way they look. Besides they're in the cab anyway no one is going to see them. But in my opinion, the sex appeal is OFF THE CHARTS!
