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.

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

    I used this speaker as a replacement in my Marshall JVM 2ooo 201 tube combo amp. I had a spare G12-75 Celestion that I tried first. I liked the tone it gave me but I thought I would give the Patriot Texas Heat a chance. Turned out to be a good move. It satisfied my needs when searching for my tone. Great speaker very well made and made in AMERICA.

      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.

        This is the second one that I have bought. Great all around replacement speaker that can handle bottom ends & greatly improve the sound of your amp. This is my go to speaker for upgrading amps & cabinets.

          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.

            I just got mine in today from you guys and immediately installed it in my 1988 Fender Studio 85 combo. Wow , what a difference in both sound and tone. This speaker has breathed new life into a 25 year old amp and has turned it into a tone monster ! Eminence Rules !

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

            I installed the Eminence Texas Heat speaker into my Limited Edition Green Blues Junior and wow, what a difference. The Blues Junior came with a Celestion Vintage 30 which is supposed to be a great speaker but to me the high strings sounded too harsh and shrill. As soon as installing the Texas Heat there was a smoother sounding top end, fantastic mid-range and incredible bass. I was going to get rid of the Blues Junior if this install didn't make a difference, but now with the "Heat" I'm lovin' it!!! It sounds great with both humbuckers and single coil pickups on 6 & 12 string guitars.
            NOTE: Eminence has great sound clips on their website for choosing their speakers and the speakers are MADE in AMERICA!!

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

              I've been experimenting with various speakers and have found that pairing a Texas Heat with a Swamp Thang works for me. And, for me, the Texas Heat is my sound.

              My first goal was to find a speaker that has no ice pick highs and does not need a "beam blocker". I think Texas Heat, Swamp Thang, Governor, and Wizard all fit that bill. But, of the four, the Texas Heat is a stand out for me.

              I get a wonderful jangly, shimmering clean tone and a great overdriven tone as well. Love it in a 1x12 combo amp. The Swamp Thangs I have in 1x12 closed back cabinets.

                    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.

                      This speaker has good bottom end response and note clarity with single coils.The highs are a little smoother than some models of the Celestions that I use.This is a great upgrade for most stock speakers in today's 1x12 combo amps and about 1/2 the price of a Celestion V30.
