      Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

      Bought this for use with harmonica. Amp is a clone of a brown Deluxe 6G3. Love this speaker. Very deep, throaty sound with roundness. The speaker is not sharp or harsh at all, yet it lacks nothing in the way of articulation. The subtlety and nuance are still there; the textures, the rasp, the rip...everything. I was worried that it wouldn't have enough character or liveliness, but those worries have been put to rest. May not be the right speaker for every application calling for a 12, but for this application, it is great.

      Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

      I just recently purchased a Peavey Bandit 1x12,a very nice and versatile amp,plenty loud. But the blue marvel speaker is the down side of the amp.

      When switching to the classic O'drive/distortion channel of the amp,the high's can be ear piercing and I don't use single coil on my bridge pick up. I use vintage wound humbuckers.

      So I installed the Eminence CR and it definitely solve allot of my issues on that channel as well as giving the amp some great low end,warm mean midrange and definitely sweet high's that is welcoming. Its also very sensitive to legato playing as well as pick attacks. It gave the tone controls on the amp more play room as well,and the clean channel also got warmer and sweeter! Everything that Eminence described it as, is correct. I highly recommend it!

        I love my Cannabis Rex. I have it in a homemade 1x12 hooked to a DSL50. This baby sounds AWESOME with Marshall distortion flowing through it and with cleans alike. Built like a tank. Eminence has the best customer service I've dealt with. REAL people in the US answer your questions and are quick about it. Sounds better than my V30's BY FAR. I wired w/ 16ga copper stranded speaker wire soldered to a switchcraft jack. I recommend the same. You won't be disappointed. Cool green color :D

          • In A Guitar Amp

          Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

          If you need a super cutting clanky piercing threshold of pain producing raybeam then look elsewhere.

          I've owned and played thru many amps over the years. incl Marshall tube halfstacks (50w Silver Jubilee) and many Fenders both vintage and modern. The two that I've held onto the longest are my 65 DRRI and Blues Jr.

          The DRRI has a 30w Weber P12B...it's the best amp I've had but I need a second amp as a backup amp and also to help preserve the DRRI...tube life etc...

          The Jr is a fine little amp but can be a little boxy and slightly lackluster at lower volumes (much better when cranked)

          I'm not a fan of major amp mods - I believe that if you really don't like the amp you should get a different one because with any major mod there is always something that's sacrificed in order to gain something else ...ie Gain lows and loose some mids that you really wanted to keep. But speakers can have a big impact on the overall complexion of an amp in a good way and it's easy to compare them and decide if it's really an improvement or not.

          With the addition of the Rex... the Jr is now on it's 3rd speaker...

          I keep the Jr because of it's light weight, small size portability plus it sounds alot like a Fender Harvard tweed I had but it is not quite as thick and rich as the Harvard.... The deal is Harvards have no reverb....I don't use much but I need a touch...can't get by without it.

          The Rex to me is a very tweedy speaker and makes my Jr sound much more like my old Harvard...You'd have to be deaf to not hear the difference... It's a nice improvement to the Jr over the Texas Heat that was in it. I don't play metal or twang and Rex may or may not find favor in those camps but if you dig old tweed then I would think you'd dig the Rex... I have no plans to replace the Weber in my Deluxe Reverb but the Rex is definitely a worthwhile upgrade for a Blues Jr.

            I installed this into my fender Drri. Wow it sounds way better and it's not even broke in yet. I had the bright cap mod, which helped a lot with the harshness, but this really improved the tone. The bass sounds more responsive and the speaker added a bit more compression. Upgrading to this speaker also helped my amp take distortion pedals a lot better. A must buy for fender drri's

                  Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

                  Very easy to install in my year-old Hot Rod Deluxe III. I was always wanting to get a better sound out of this amp with the stock celestion speakers. Tried numerous tubes also and was still always tweaking my amp and 2012 Les Paul Standard tone knobs and could not get satisfied with the overall sound.

                  Decided to try the Cannabis Rex speaker and for several days now.... I have to say it is great! I repeat Great! Those ice picky highs and loud blare-out notes and too much base sound at times is gone. Has better tone control now for me with more manageable and better(less) bass tone from my neck pickup that I couldn't seem to tweak out before.

                  To me, I have a much improved overall sound now along with my current JJ 6V6 tubes and JJ ECC81 in V1 and ECC83 Pre amp tubes. ECC83 in V1 is fine also. I havn't re-tried my JJ 6L6's yet but believe they will sound fine also when I want the additional volumn from this amp.

                  The C-Rex speaker immediatly gave a more defined clearer and tighter sound to my liking. Drive 1 and 2 sound better also. I am very pleased with this speaker and from what I have read it should improve even more after some additional break-in time.

                  So far, I couldn't be happier and can't see how any other speaker choice would make this amp sound any better. Would highly recommend you try it yourself to see if it fits your ear.

                    Probably used as a great replacement speaker by most people. I went a different way. I built a single solid wood cab, pretty much as small as possible. speaker slanted back about 20 degrees, back partially open. I plug various tube heads into it. I write music, so most of my playing is rhythm with a little lead. Nice clean sound, with bluesy vibe. Started to open up after a couple of weeks playing. Ordered a second one to have a 2x12 option. Second speaker started out with more depth than the already broken in one! I plan to add a wood strip to close off the back of the second cab when using the pair for an even better bass drive. When I hit the bright swich on the Acoustic tube lead head, they sound very close to Celestions, just slightly darker. I run Fender cabs w/ stock speakers. Blue Voodoo and Egnater w/ celestions and these fit in the middle of the mix nicely with thier own character.

                      Bought this to upgrade a Celestion Vintage 30 in a Mesa Boogie amp. The notorious upper mids of the V30 always bothered me. This rounded out the sound which i like better.
