    I've got 2 of these in my Blackstar HT-60 Stage combo (open back). At first they were very fizzy to my ears. I really couldn't get them to sound how I wanted. After probably a goo 40+ hours of high volume playing they've sweetened up a bit and the fizz is gone. I'm in a cover band that does everything from The Beatles to Cee Lo to Iron Maiden and these speakers handle what I throw at them pretty well. I seem to get an incredibly dark tone with them, but I'm starting to wonder if I just got an extremely dark piece of mahogany in my guitar. Whatever the case, they can handle plenty of low end at high volumes. These speakers are definitely and upgrade for most low-medium range amps and cabs. If you've got the money you might consider something a bit on the higher end side. I am considering swapping one for a WGS Veteran 30, but I might keep the other seventy 80 to have to contrast in speakers.

    These work best in a closed back 2x12 cab. Where the lack of bass is helped by the bassy sound of a closed back cab design. I compared these to my Greenback 25 watt, Classic Lead 80 watt, Eminence Wizard 75 watt, Eminence Governor 75 watt. If you need a 80 watt range speaker then go for the much smoother thicker sounding Governor. If you want to spend more money get the Classic 80. The Seventy 80 is a bright sounding speaker with high mids and very thin sound with little bass response. These are average speakers that come stock in just about every mid priced cab. I would upgrade with something different.

      Comments about Celestion Seventy 80 80W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

      I have one 70/80 in an Ampeg GVT52 tube 112 combo. The Ampeg is a great sounding amp and if you find one grab it before they're discontinued. Anyway, I bought the Ampeg new last year from MF as a STUPID DEAL OF THE DAY and it sounded great out of the box. After about 40 hours of playing the speaker came alive even more. I play rock and blues clean to heavy distorted. I just love the tone of this amp and the speaker certainly contributes to that tonefull bliss. The amp is a tone machine but I have no complaints at all with this speaker and will keep the amp stock.

            This speaker is quite bad, no mids and thin trebly sound. If you want a full rich tone dont buy these.
            Get an eminence british flavored speaker for the same price. Check youtube celestion conparison vidoes.

              The seventy 80's gets the job done and have a nice voice of their own. Came stock in my Randall RT50C. It is toneful, responsive, and matches well with my fifty watt all tube amp. I would call this speaker well rounded and capable of covering many genre. I like it best for articulate crunch tones.

              Comments about Celestion Seventy 80 80W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

              I have owned these in a 4x12 closed back crate angled cab for almost 5 years! These are great sounding speakers period! Sure some will like and some will hate but that is a personal issue. All I know is my sound is AWESOME coming out of the box using numerous amps! Mostly I play tube amps but have a Tech 21 and a Crate S.S. which also sounds great through the cab! So IMHO I like these a lot! They fit my style of classic rock, blues, metal, even country twang comes out of the box! So what is the problem people? I am going to get some Governors and try them in the cab or build my own. But I am asking this.........WHY?

              Not great with a great amp

              By Jude-Dc5FH

              from Canada

              Comments about Celestion Seventy 80 80W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

              I picked up a Marshall 4x12 used and opened it up, expecting to find 12/70's but found these instead. With a great Marshall head *I use a Jub and an early 800* they are flabby and undefined. The highs pierce until the the speakers 'flab out' from too much work. I'm sure these have a use somewhere, and the price is around where a V30 or something SHOULD be, but in today's economy you never know what you'll get for any price. In a good real wood cab with a great 100 watt Marshall, they fall very flat. Spend a couple bucks more and get a good speaker, or look a Jensen. Being replaced tomorrow.

              I have a pair that came stock with a crate rfx 200s and the sound really good when put into application with the right style/sound your going for I think for blues, classic rock, jazz, and ambient or indie stuff...but metal they kinda crap out in my opinion... there are some volume drops with certain frequncies also wich can be annoying but that's mainly with heavy over drive.

              Comments about Celestion Seventy 80 80W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

              Have these in a 4x12 cab, closed back. use them for rock and metal through an all tube amp. These speakers have a nice smooth breakup, not too early, and sound great for lead playing as well. They are a good all around speaker, kind of in between a vintage 30 and a g12t 75. Great buy for the money, and will also work famously mixed w/ two other speakers in a 4x12 cab, which is an optional set up that is growing in popularity more and more.
