    Comments about Celestion G12K-100 100W 12" Guitar Speaker:

    I ilke the G12H and V30 is OK too, but this is the speaker to use if you have an open back cab and need a little extra Bass, not as toned down as Greenback. but sort of like a mixe of a G12H and Greenback.

      Love these speakers. They sound great with my marshall mode four 350W cab and provide the low end and depth of sound that i wanted. They took a few days longer for delivery as they sat in customs for a week but that isn't really at fault for musicians friend.

        Comments about Celestion G12K-100 100W 12" Guitar Speaker:

        I needed a 16 ohm,100 watt speaker for a 1X12 so I can use my Marshall JVMHJS at band practice. (A 4X12 can't fit in my car & I don't have a 2X12) The result... great tone. The audio response is basically flat as far as EQ goes. This allows the tones of the head to really shine through. Sometimes it is good to have a speaker(s) that colors tone but not in this case. By itself this one speaker can EASILY handle a 100 watt JVM at high volume! I think I may get 2 more to put in an X pattern with the G12T-75s in my 4X12. Or maybe replace all four...

          Comments about Celestion G12K-100 100W 12" Guitar Speaker:

          Holy Cow these speakers amaze me.

          I had been looking to upgrade my cab for a while (an 80's Laney 4x12). I tried a Mesa Boogie with Vintage 30s and a few other Straight Cabs designed for metal.

          In the end I decided on a whim to replace my speakers with g12k-100s because of reviews and descriptions I had read. A little scary, but it totally paid off. The speakers give me the extra power/low end/clarity that I have been searching for!!

          I play through a Musicman HD-130 head, typically with fuzz, octave down and plenty of looping. My old speakers (gM-70s) got muddy quickly and never quite delivered the sub octaves the way my heart desired. the g12k-100s certainly deliver, and MORE.

          Also, they are relatively easy to install if you do a bit of online research and practice your soldering.

            Comments about Celestion G12K-100 100W 12" Guitar Speaker:

            This is a wonderful sounding speaker for classic rock tones. It is slightly scooped in the mids but this can be compensated for at the tone controls. The lows are big and tight and the highs are not harsh at all. Not nearly as scooped as the Celestion G12T-75. It handles a lot of power so it is great for a 1X12 combo or cab. It does clean sounds ok but really shines with crunch and metal tones. I would recommend it with the understanding that the midrange is less pronounced than the average "full range" guitar speaker.

                The speaker is made in China but is of good quality.I have allways used Celestion speakers. They have a good rock and roll tone.

                  Comments about Celestion G12K-100 100W 12" Guitar Speaker:

                  I hated these speakers when I first got them. The sound gritty, distortiony, just all around terrible. I broke them in at around 10 hours, moderate volume. enough to speak over, yet here in the next room. I brought it to Band Practice and cranked on it for the first time. Still sounded the same. I ended up turning the Bass dial down from 8-3. The Mid dial from 7-5. The High dial from 8-5. I had more Bass, Mid, and High range than I ever had. Still sounded gritty though. After practicing about 3 months, 3 days a week, 4 hours a day. The grittyness just went away, and these are the most amazing speakers I've ever heard. I've had them for about a year and a half, and my band only records with these speakers. I use the Mesa Roadster head mixed with 4 of these, in a Mesa speaker Box and WOW!!!!

                  Rock Tones

                  Comments about Celestion G12K-100 100W 12" Guitar Speaker:

                  I purchased a set of these 6 months ago and mixed them with a set of Eminence Patriots in a 4X12 8OHM Angled closed back cabinet. After breaking them in correctly. The tone is awesome. You get low end punch/Mid range from Celestions and More Mids/highs from Patriots. I was not sure how the combo would work but I am happy I tried it. I play mostly hard and classic rock with a little Metallica thrown in. Try it you'll love the setup!
