"BIG 3D BOTTOM END BASS!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall a great speaker if you use right. It wont do everything like I hoped, but for blues and cleans, there is no other option to me. Big 3D bottom end bass sounds amazing, but its not what you think when you add it to rock.
This is a great speaker, but not for me. It is very bassy, and has a powerful bottom end. I would give it a 10 for blues or clean playing, but not my cup of joe for rock or metal. For blues its VERY 3D! Big sound, clean and heavy. If you add gain you hear it, but if you add too much I hear a slight buzz with my rig. IMO, unless you like the deathcore/grindcore uber heavy drop A, this speaker doesnt do too well for rock or metal. Hard to mic as well.
This was used in a bugera 4X12 cab with 2 swamp thangs and 2 man o wars run from a modded spider valve hd100.
Tis a speaker. I dropped one point because i wish it had the new eminence FDM on it.
I will also have to add that is will make your rig sound louder than almost any other speaker. I guess thats a feature. So point given back.
Ease of Use
It clearly labels positive and negative terminals. Anyone with basic wiring and soldering skills could easily hook them up. And if you dont, do an hours worth of research and you'll figure it out.
Tis eminence. That means American made quality.
Your getting a great value on this speaker IF you know how to use it. Other wise you will be kicking yourself.
Their web site is AMAZING! sound clips for all their speakers, and a tone chart that will help you decide. And if you are still stuck on what to get, shoot them an email and they will be more than happy to help you decide.
The Wow Factor
When it comes to speakers and sex appeal, eminence has it all. Blue painted basket, slight blue color to the cone, nice looking sticker. And heck, they even come with picks and a sticker! Plus a single swamp thang can handle a 100 watt tube amp by its self. Its like the big handsome buff speaker that all the thin sounding speakers wish they could be like and gets all babes.
Metal, rock, and blues.
