50 W of thunder for modern American players.
Inspired by American amp designs, the A-Type is a different kind of guitar speaker from Celestion. The A-type has the musical and revealing three- dimensional quality that is the heart and soul of the Celestion sound, however it features a laid-back midrange which reveals extra body and complexity in the upper register, accompanied by full and rounded low frequencies.The A-Type conveys a fluid, even performance with an increased headroom threshold that allows your amp' tone to shine through. Clean players will love the smooth articulation; for rockers the brooding, powerful low end grind is just a heavy riff away.

Comments about Celestion A-Type 12" 50W 8ohm Guitar Replacement Speaker:
I bought 2 A type speakers to replace the celestion vintage 30 in my Mesa Boogie F100 (2 x 12" configuration). I don't like the mid hump of the V30 that made my guitars nasal sounding so I decided to replace both speakers to get better cleans. My first impression was, wow! sounds like my 76' fender pro reverb in clean channel: round, smooth and articulate but the drive channel lost his aggressive character, a little bit harsh sounding. This speakers has less mids and !ows than the V30 in my opinion so I decided to combine it with the V30, and this combination blew my mind, perfect cleans and very focused overdrive. I think that this speakers are made to be combined because they interact very well with each other. Now I have a balanced sound that made my amp very versatile, not only for metal ( I don't play metal anyway) it can be used for blues, classic rock and even jazz. With a tube screamer in front is a killer. I'm very happy with this speaker combined with a V30. I'll be installing the remaining A type in my Peavey classic 30 and I'll be reporting how it sounds.
