      Comments about Eminence Patriot 8" Lead/Rhythm Guitar Speaker:

      Just fits into a '76 champ. This was a big improvement over the stock speaker & a different aftermarket speaker. It has a smoother top and and much more bass response. It made the amp sound "bigger".

        Great sound improvement , much beefier, thicker sound. Fender should have used a heavier speaker from the get go. Great upgrade at a fair price.

          Comments about Eminence Patriot 8" Lead/Rhythm Guitar Speaker:

          I use my silverface Champ for home practice at lower volume with pedals (Wampler Tweed '57, Hall of Fame reverb) & this speaker's a great choice. Strong volume and solid bass. Doesn't sound exactly like fitting a Champ with a 10" speaker--not quite as full--but it's a nice upgrade nonetheless. I don't know what vintage amp the guy had who didn't have success fitting it, but there's no problem with a 1974 Fender Champ.

          • Small 5 Watt Amps

          Comments about Eminence Patriot 8" Lead/Rhythm Guitar Speaker:

          In the small tube amp category, (Fender Champ, Bugera V5 etc.) To keep prices down, the speakers are usually of lower quality and efficiency. Usually in the 88-90 db/watt/meter range. This speaker is advertised as 96 db sensitivity. Volume wise, it almost doubles the perceived volume of the amp. Tone wise, it sounds great! Good definition, tight bottom, very good projection.

              Comments about Eminence Patriot 8" Lead/Rhythm Guitar Speaker:

              I installed this speaker in my 1978 Silver Face Fender Vibro Champ. There were no clearance issues, and it sounded great. The frame is very beefy. It has closed-cell foam where the frame meets the cabinet (it's a rear-mount only type of speaker). The magnet is so strong that I had a hard time keeping my tools from sticking to it. The speaker connections are the slip-on type, so hooking it up was a cinch. There are 8 holes in the frame (I only used four) so that you can angle it any way you choose (clearance issues, short wires).

              I'm very happy with it. There's none of the low-end flabbiness that the stock speaker had. Thumbs up.

              • 8" Speaker Upgrades

              Comments about Eminence Patriot 8" Lead/Rhythm Guitar Speaker:

              Every claim the Eminence makes for this speaker is accurate and true. It eliminated the "boxy" mid focused tonality of my amp, opened it up considerably at both the high and low end, and gave a smoother overall sound throughout it's tonal range. It truly does sound far more like a 10" speaker than an 8". It's also extremely efficient and holds its own very well when paired with higher wattage 1x10" amps. I can't imagine any other upgrade that could do more to improve amps with stock 8" speakers than this will. It's well worth it's price.

              the speakers frame is too big to fit into a vintage combo amp.
