        Comments about Eminence Legend 1218 12" Guitar Speaker:

        Good sounding speakers, warm, big but tight lows, good clear highs but not harsh. The tone is a little like a Celestion and a little like a Jensen maybe. With 125 watts through it full up it doesn't break up as in distort or freak out somehow but you can hear an extra zing, a little extra Celestion style buzz in there, it's nice. For blues, country, R&R and other medium distorted guitar this thing sounds great.

        Awesome Fender Speaker


        from Detroit, MI

        Comments about Eminence Legend 1218 12" Guitar Speaker:

        This speaker doesn't get a lot of press because it is overshadowed by the Patriot and Red Coat speakers in the Eminence brand. I've been through many Emi speakers in the newer lines but came back to this one. It is clean but definitely not sterile. Big warm (tight but not boomy) bass, mids are solid but smooth with just a touch of bite when you crank your mids. Highs are strong but musical - not harsh. It plays any style of music and keeps its composure at high volumes. I also like that it is slightly less efficient allowing me to turn my amp up more to get into the sweet spot. It just plain works for my Fender 40 watt black face amp. Cleans are exceptional and overdrive is very musical. For my purposes, it is the best speaker Emi sells.
