OVERVIEW

The source of Eddie's sound.

These G12 replacement speakers drive the EVH 5150III amplifier to deliver ultimate Van Halen tone. They're the result of Edward Van Halen and Fender joining forces in an incredible collaboration.

Throughout his career, Eddie Van Halen has sought out original Celestion 20-watt Greenback speakers to load into his recording and performing rigs. So, when designing the EVH 5150III it was to Celestion that EVH and Fender turned in search of that vintage Greenback sound.

Celestion's Heritage Series G12 M speakers are a faithful reproduction of the original 1960s 20-watt Greenback and for EVH they provide the ideal solution. However-in order to give this speaker a look that is unmistakably EVH-a specially designed label, featuring the Van Halen logo and unique EVH striped design, along with a black-painted can that evokes the memory of the rare and much sought after Celestion "Blackback" speakers, were added.

      Comments about Celestion G12 EVH Van Halen Signature Guitar Speaker:

      These are 25 watt speakers. They are the same exact speaker as the heritage g12m EXCEPT they have EVH graphic covers. They sound great! You can verify this info easily with Celestion. A quad in a cab will handle 100 watts safely.

      CAUTION: 20 WATTS!

      Pros

      • Improves Sound

      Cons

      • Incompatible W 6505 Amps
      • Low Wattage

      Best Uses

      • Fu
      • Full Stack Only

      Comments about Celestion G12 EVH Van Halen Signature Guitar Speaker:

      20 watt speaker. MUST use 4x12 halfstack w/ 50w or 60w 5150/6505 amp.

      Can use NO LESS THAN TWO CABINETS (FULL STACK) WITH BIG 100-120W HEADS!!!!! must have two, no halfstacks you WILL blow your new speakers

      Can NOT be used in 2x12 with ANY "gig/jam sized" head, not even the 50 watters.

      CANNOT BE USED WITH ****ANYTHING***** except tiny 5w vox/epi/blackstar bedroom amps in 1x12 cab

      conclusion: not compatible with most evh signature amps.

      not really a 12" guitar speaker, being utterly unuseable and unapproved for use by manhfacturer ratings in >95% of situations where guitar 12s are used...off label use is not covered by warranties and not officially encouraged. who runs with a full stack EVERY time these days?? nobody. it wont fit in most cars even.

      celestion shoulda cloned a 30w greenback. whats up with speakers that dont support a standard 100-120w head on a single 4x12 halfstack?????

        Comments about Celestion G12 EVH Van Halen Signature Guitar Speaker:

        I broke the driver in for 24 hrs with a 30Hz signal at 8V. This helped the driver sound when installed in an Avatar G112 cabinet. Great tone. Compliments the Strat and Teli perfectly. Even the LP sounds rich through it.

          Comments about Celestion G12 EVH Van Halen Signature Guitar Speaker:

          Great upgrade, classic tone of the sixties and seventies. excellent in closed back cabs for the Marshall style of amps. Be aware these take awhile to break in so give them several hours, like 40 or more before you start to hear their real tone. I use them in a 1966A 2X12 cab. Made in England just like the Heritage Greenback. Definetly worth what they cost. I love the harmonic overtones these express so well.

          Wide Sounding Speaker

          By Zwee Di Dah

          from Pert near the Grand Canyon

          Comments about Celestion G12 EVH Van Halen Signature Guitar Speaker:

          If I had to use one word to describe the Celestion G12EVH speaker, it would be "wide." The sound field has good depth from low to high with smooth mids. Also, this speaker is the real deal made in the UK.As and aside, before buying any replacement speaker, I suggest visiting Celestion's web site. There you can find out about power handling, magnet weight/type, 15 vs 16 ohm, breaking in a new speaker, and even the story behind Greenbacks and Blackbacks. Overall, Celestion has done a fine job making this speaker, so I was compelled to give it 5 stars in all categories.

          CELESTION Vintage Greenback + EVH = AWESOME

          By Vintage Lover

          from Ontario, Canada

          Comments about Celestion G12 EVH Van Halen Signature Guitar Speaker:

          I want to offer a whole hearted thank you to Eddie and Celestion for making one of the greatest speakers ever made accessible to the public once more. 60's Greebacks are one of, if not the most, iconic speakers in rock history, I used to think I'd have to win the lottery or something to own one. With this speaker designed to exact vintage specs anyone can have the sound of legends. Break this baby in and you will play on it and love it for years.
