The Eminence Lil' Texas 12" Guitar Speaker is a lightweight 12" speaker with a little Texas edge. Lil' Texas delivers a very balanced tone with crisp mids and top end bite, tight bottom end, and very American tonality. Great for classic rock, blues, and country.

Eminence recommends the Lil" Texas speaker as an alternate replacement for the Eminence Tonkerlite speaker in the Rocktron Velocity S1122 and the THD Ported 2 x 12 cabinets.

        Comments about Eminence Lil' Texas 12" 125W Guitar Speaker:

        These remind me a lot of the Lansing guitar speakers, only witout the hernia from moving your gear around. The rare earth magnets are tiny compared to a ceramic or Alnico magnet for a comperable speaker. If you want distortion, buy some pedals. That was about the only way to get good distortion with a high end Fender Twin anyway, espeically if you had the JBLs in it. These are wonderful sounding speakers, and the 125 watt ratings allow me to use them in my ridiculous high power 1x12 combo amps. I have even used these in 24 watt Deluxe Reverb amps. So many people make their own 5E3 Deluxe & Deluxe Reverb amps now, I have taken to making insane combo amps that will also drive two full stacks at 85-150 watts. Most of my hi power combos top out at 100 watts so these are a great fit. They compensate for the weight of the transformers, and I have some watts to spare. So, I get a nice clean JBL type tone, without the excess weight. One of the best selling combos I make uses 8 small power tubes for 80-96 watts. The unique tone and high power makes these amps a favorite that draws any attention away from just another 6L6, or El34 amp. No, 96 watts is not 4x louder than a 24 watt amp, but you won't have any problems cutting it with a heavy handed drummer. You can opt for jazz or C&W clean, or put some pedals in and get some sick metal sounds. These speakers were the happiest accidental find of 2014, and we intend to use a lot more of them too!

          Comments about Eminence Lil' Texas 12" 125W Guitar Speaker:

          I'm primarily a jazz player, and do sideman work in country and R&B settings. I value a great clean sound, with no speaker distortion. I love the way JBLs and EVs sound in my Blackface Pro Reverb (2X12), but without a road crew the extra weight is a drag. Enter the Lil' Texas. These things weigh 4# apiece, are very efficient, and have the "Fender sparkle" in spades. They sound close enough to the old Emi "Gold Label" Special Designs that used to come in Twin Reverb Reissues, that, IMO, Fender should just quit screwing around and make these stock in the Twin. They are big, bold and bright, and sound great with a little overdrive as well. At 103db spl, they move some serious air, so they'd be a great choice for maximizing clean headroom on a smaller amp like a Deluxe or Princeton as well. Can't say enough about how good these speakers are, not sure why they're so overlooked!

              Comments about Eminence Lil' Texas 12" 125W Guitar Speaker:

              Long time ago I bought two Rocktron S112 cabinets. I thought they where too bright and decided to replace the cones with high quality Fane speakers (25 pounds each). It was a great improvement. But last year I had a surgery in my right choulder and could not lift any more my heavy cabinets. I decided to replace them with LIL Texas. Beside a little lost on the mids, wich was not difficult to compensate, I was delithed with its presence ans bass response and paricularly its lite weight! I'm fully satisfied and would recommend it to anyone.

                    In most instances this speaker makes a huge improvement in sound, bass response, clarity and decreases the weight of an amp or cab.

                    I can't tell you how many of these I've bought in the past. If I bought an amp or cab I'd immediately replace the speaker(s) with one of these and it was an improvement every time.

                    I just bought a boutique amp, Blue Fire, and ordered this speaker again except this time, for the first time, the stock speaker worked out better. That is not taking anything away from this speaker. It's awesome for rock and blues and now I have a spare one or the next amp I'll get.

                        I was not happy with the stock Fender Speaker in my Blues Deluxe Amp. Too harsh not enough mids and high end sparkle. Changed out the Groove Tubes to JJ's and after some research selected this speaker. Now in TONE HEAVEN! Crisp high end sparkle, great mids, and tight bottom end. Does exactly what the adds for the speaker state. Very happy with this speaker plus took about 5 lbs of weight off the overall weight of the amp!

                        Comments about Eminence Lil' Texas 12" 125W Guitar Speaker:

                        I was looking for a Neodymium alternative to the Eminence Tonker Light, to put in my Mesa Boogie Rectoverb 1 x 12 combo. The Tonker is a great speaker, suited for classic rock n roll. I currently use 2 of them in my Nau Engineering 3 channel amp. The Lil Texas is more American sounding, in the sense that it has a "scooped" sound. The Mesa can sound a bit "buzzy" on the highs. However, the Lil Texas tamed the buzz. Please note that this is after a few hours of break in. I a/b'd them switching the speakers in the Nau amp, the Mesa, and a PRS "H" amp. The speaker really gave each amp a great sound, with a tight bass (but not boomy), nice mids and nice highs. The price has gone up on the Neo speakers, thanks in part to raw materials from "over seas" price increases. However, I had Musician's Friend take 10% off. Choose these, or any Emmenince for that matter, over Vintage 30s. They are not made in England in anymore. Yes, you can hear the difference.

                        The Best Texas Sound

                        I replaced the factory speaker in my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe with this speaker hoping for a very clear, Texas Blues sound. I have been blown away by how this speaker puts out through my amp. I play electric slide Blues guitar on my dual humbucker modified Strat. The sounds are wonderful. Much better than the factory speaker ever was. I have had this speaker gigging constantly for about a year now and I still get comments from other players like "How do you get that cool sound?" I recommend this speaker highly. I will buy another one for my new Hot Rod xtn cabinet soon. You want tight, clear sounds that are perfect for Southern Blues/Rock. Don't look any farther. This is the one!
