I have a Mustang III and I liked the Celestion GT100 speaker but I have swapped speakers in other amps with great results and wanted to see if I could boost the output in my little mustang . I first installed a Swamp Thang and although it's a great speaker it had a funky mid color that I just couldnt dial out. I called Anthony at Eminence and he told me it was due to the voice of the Swamp Thang speaker and the compact cabinet size together that produces a lot of mids. So per his advice he sent me a Texas Heat and just like he said it would, It turned my M3 into my "go to" amp. Not Kidding! The Texas Heat sounds very similar to the Celestion GT100 (as far as the voice) but with better bottom end handling and rounder mids but the highs are smoothed out for a more balanced tone. Very natural, un-colored tone with a higher db rating so it's louder too, a win, win for the M3. Fender should drop the cheap chinesse Celestion and just install these in the M3 as far as Im concerned.... A very very important note, a lot of people install the new Eminence speakers and judge them on the spot. BIG MISTAKE!!! They are very very tight when new and it takes a while for them to fully break in. After 4 whole days of being hooked to my keyboard with a weight on the 5 lowest keys, this speaker sounds completly different than it did out of the box..BETTER, much better. Even now from time to time I have to dial back the EQ a little bit because the speaker keeps getting looser...If your looking for a speaker for your open back 1x12 amp or cab that sounds pretty natural but can handle anything and everything you throw at it and is also very very loud THIS IS IT!!! 100% American Made too!!! Buy them while they are cheap, you wont be sorry. Hope this helps...:-)

The Eminence Patriot is an OK speaker. It has two drop-off frequencies. One at 45Hz and 1.25KHz compared to a Celestion seventy 80. The Celestian has a much flatter frequency response over it's entire spectrum. The Patriot peaks at 2.5KHz@108dB compared to the Celestion's 2.5KHz@105dB. I like the smooth transition sound of the Celestion over the Patriot. If you are looking for the best speaker I would recommend the Tone Tubby 40/40. It has twice the low frequency range than both the Patriot & the Celestion. The TT 40/40 also has twice the dB voltage at 3.5KHZ compared to the 2.5KHz of the other two. The down side to the TT 40/40 is it's twice the price.

Okay speaker

By PWC

Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

It's a good speaker as long as it matches up with your amp to get the sound you want - as I originally bought it for a Fender amp I was dissapointed but Love it in my Marshall
Late break up speaker - requires amp with lots of overdrive or distortion to really get it to sing - will do Crunch well.

Tried it in a Fender (silver face) Blues Junior and a 66 Fender black face Bandmaster it seemed too dark - has a lot of low mids and highs were mutted. Dynamics were poor - not very responive to pick attack compared the the original Blues Jr speaker. Fender amps lose that Fender sound with this speaker and get more of a Marshall sound - this may be a good thing for some.

On the plus side it works well in a Marshall 205h amp - this combo worked very well - better than some Celestions and Celestion clones. It helped round out the thin or overly bright Marshall sound but yet sounded very rich and chimy on the clean channel. Seems to palm mute well for rythum playing as well - I seemed to like it better than the Eminence Wizard. If you have a Marshall 1X12 combo you may want to try one of these. Your Marshall amp will retain it's British Marshal sound using this speaker.
built well
Good value for the money

Love these speakers!!!

Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

I have a Fender FM 212R 100 watt solid state amp. I hated the tone of it. Too much trashy sounding 1.2 to 1.6K frequency. I tried to EQ it out but it only helped a little. And the louder I turned it up, the worse it sounded. So I put in these Eminence Patriot Texas Heats and the difference is phenomenal! All the trashy-ness is gone. Now it's just rich, crisp, throaty, chunky, clear tone!!! And the more I turn it up, the better it sounds!! It was sort of an experiment to see if these speakers could improve the tone of a cheap solid state amp. My friends YES!! These speakers made my Fender FM 212R one of my favorite amps - when originally I was just going to sell it cause I couldn't stand it. Now it's a gem! Buy these speakers!! You won't regret it! I am now going to put a set of Red Coat Governors in my Peavey Valve King 212 and see what happens there. I am confident I will like the result.

    Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

    I've taken my sweet time to write a review of this speaker... about 3 years now but at least I really really know just what this thing is capable of by now. I use this speaker in an isolation cabinet for playing out as well as recording, I have pumped a vintage Marshall 100 watter as well as a state of the art custom solid state 100 watter through it and the thing keeps asking for more... What a monster, and what a great speaker! I use just a plain old vanilla Shure SM57 to feed out of the isocab and it sounds incredible live and in the studio. I have driven it incredibly hard and I think it even sounds better now than when it was new... Great speaker here Eminence.

    Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

    I bought the Texas Heat to pair with a Swamp Thang for my Twin Reverb. If I were just looking for a single 12" speaker I would pick the Swamp Thang over the Texas Heat, but for 2 x 12 the Texas Heat compliments the Swamp Thang nicely. Seems to add a little sizzle and top end without being ice picky.

    A perfect upgrade!

    By Hunter-08N.b

    Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

    The stock 30 watt speakers in my 4x12 cabinet just weren't cutting it! These Eminence speakers keep their cool and don't break up at low volumes but they do not limit your playing. Instead they pronounce your playing smoothly even with a 100 watt high gain tube head on the overdrive channel or on the crystal clean channel as I've tested it. These speakers course sound modern and american with texas spice so if you are looking for lower wattage vintage british tones, check out the eminence red coat series, jensen or celestion speakers instead.

    Simply the best speaker you can get for the price

    By SoccerRockerPlayer

    from Salt Lake City, UT

    Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

    This speaker is the absolute best speaker you can buy for the price, and you'll be hard pressed to find a better speaker for any price. I bought this as a replacement for the stock speaker in my Fender Blues Junior. I liked the way the way the amp sounded before replacing the speaker, but this speaker truly brought new life to my blues junior. The bass response, previously non-existant, is very strong. Highs are tight; they just sing. Mids are great, but I like to back them off. Besides the added bass, the best thing about this speaker is how warm, fat, and smooth the sound is. I thought the stock blues junior speaker was warm; is freezes in contrast to the texas heat. Honestly, this speaker is truly amazing. I was worried that the low price would be reflected by low quality sound. Not so. What a steal!

    My 4 Texas Heat speakers!!

    By The Bretman-YCIiR

    from Iowa City

    Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

    I'm a guitar player with over 25 years experience, and recently I wanted to have a couple of custom 2X12 cabs made. A good friend of mine does this kind of work, and very well. When shopping for speakers I wanted to keep that classic "British" sound, but without as much of the shrillness that Celestions can give. After checking out Musician's Friend as well as Eminence's websites I decided to give the Texas Heats a try. The description sounded exactly like what I was looking for, and that's EXACTLY what I got! When my friend delivered my new custom cabinets to me I couldn't wait to plug in & play. In my rig I play a Gibson Les Paul Studio through a Line 6 POD 2.0 through a Rocktron Velocity 150 power amp in stereo, then to the 2 cabs. I dialed up my favorite Marshall jcm800 tone and turned up the volume to let 'er rip....WOW!! The first sound that came at me was full-bodied, fat, gutsy, with just enough brightness to cut through, and without that Celestion shrillness...bloody PERFECT!! After ripping out some crunchy stuff I played with a clean sound with a little stereo chorus. It was warm, bright, full, and thanks to the chorus, swirling & shimmery too. I could not be happier with my cabs! They can handle ungodly amounts of power, (150 watts rms per speaker, so 300 per cab), and the tone is fantastic! I kinda hate to admit it, but I'm never going back to British speakers. These Eminence Texas Heats OWN all! If you want your guitar tone warm, full and fat with just a little shimmer on top, these are for you! GREAT for modern rock, southern rock, Texas blues/rock, and yes, even British metal!

    A pretty cool heat.

    By shawn coburn

    from northeast La.

    Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

    I bought this to replace the Scorpion in my Bandit (teal stripe) that was blown. I bought that amp USED back in '92-'94 and it's still rockin. I'm liking the Texes Heat already.Sounds great and it isn't even broke in yet.I was a little concerned about using it in an open back combo but turned out pretty awesome.I was shocked when I opened it and found that Eminence had thrown in two cool picks.One side says Patriot "PICK YOUR SOUND" with the Eminence logo and the other side had the stars and stripes Patriot logo.Plus they give you the hard plastic mounting plate that says "Eminence Inside" that I replaced the "Scorpion Equipped" plate with.I'll be using Eminence again simply because they think of the customer and go the extra mile;it's the little things that count.
    Well what does a loud speaker feature? It was packaged really good and neat in a nice durable box.The speaker was set in protective foam to minimize damage during shipping and handling.Contents included:Speaker,Two picks,...maybe .073 gauge or thinner,and a plastic name plate for installing on amp or cab.150 watt 12" cool patriot sticker on the magnet with the terminals on top for easy connection to the amp's output wires.
    My first guitar speaker so I dont know if the outer cone area is supposed to be as sticky as it was.Not sure if glue wasn't dry or what but no harm I was cautious not to set it face down on carpet,couch or kitty cat! The cone itself seemed cheap at first because of its paper construction but after installing and hearing it my confidence was boosted. Its was easy to install and the inner diameter was a perfect fit with no gaps.Terminals were marked with + and - to take out the guess work of polarity.It weighs less than the Scorpion that was equipped with Bandit so hauling is easier and as of now it sounds great from bedroom levels-->wifes gone-->jam session.
    Another one?Time will tell if it's valuable.My amp is 12+ years old and only reason I needed a speaker was because I let a freind borrow it and somehow he blew the Scorpion.If I get at least 5 years out of it with proper care then... I'm in! I'm loving it so far,sounds awesome,looks cool in the back of my amp,it weighs less,after it's broke in then we'll see but I'm sure it'll pull its weight.IT'S AMERICAN MADE!!!

      Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

      I record at home with a single Sure 57. I replaced my Celestion Seventy 80's in my Randall 2x12 with one of these and paired it with a Swamp Thang. I tried for months to get a good sound out of those Seventy 80's and just got fet up. Once I put the Texas Heat in I got a great sound right off the bat and didn't even break in the speaker yet.

      If you are looking for a great speaker at a great price then this is it. It's best for hard rock and metal, but I'm sure with the right amp rig it could be used for anything.
