Great speaker, made/assembled in USA and a great value. Every bit as good as Celestion at 1/2 price. WGS says this model speaker sounds best when mixed with their Vet 30. I have a cab with Celestion Vintage 30s so I tried these out buying two and installing them in an X pattern. The 4x12 sounded great with the Vintage 30 but with these bad boys installed is now incredible. They sounded great out of the box. After about an hour or two of jamming hard it's tone changed a bit getting warmer. I have about 20 hours on item they sound fantastic.

I've tried several heads through this cab -- Engl Blackmore, Carvin X100B REISSUE, Marshall JCM800 (80s vintage) and Marshall JVM 210. I also tried my Orange CR120 SS head which really did well with this cab. All the heads were great through this cab with the Carvin really sounding the best. I was playing classic rock and ithe Carvin nails that hot rodded Classic Rock tone. I think any quality head would scream with this speaker combo.

In short, WGS was spot on with their assessment on how good this match would be. WGS is top shelf all the way and it's affordable. I'm not about to right off Celestion because I really like some of their offerings -- ie Greenbacks. But, these Made in the USA speakers are as good and outside of the Greenback, I would certainly try the WGS equivalent first.

I needed two speakers for my 2x12 guitar cab and after reading the reviews about pairing the ET65 with the Veteran 30 in which it seems everyone loved the combination of the two in the same cab I decided to buy the pair and give it a go. WHAT A MISTAKE!!! The combo sounds awful. Both are 16 ohm and the cab is wired in parallel for an 8 ohm load so that's ok. The Veteran 30 sounds great but the ET65 is muddy and bland. What an awful speaker. I checked the components of the speaker and it is functioning properly. Maybe this speaker if for really loud metal tunes. I don't know but for a clean tone for country and jazz this speaker is a nightmare. This combo of the Veteran 30 and the ET65 is not good for anything. I am going to get another Veteran 30 and I will use the ET65 for target practice.

      Comments about Warehouse Guitar Speakers ET65 12" 65W British Invasion Guitar Speaker:

      Wow this speaker is great. I installed it in about ten minutes, and right off the bat it sounds way better than the stock speaker I had previously.

      I put this speaker in a closed back 1x12 laney irt cab. My clean channel has much better, focused bass and the higher notes just sing beautifully with no harshness. I haven't cranked it yet but I'm confident it's going to sound great.

      It's obviously not even broken in yet and still sounds massively better than what I was previously using. Highly recommended wgs. The speaker itself was heavier and looked to be much better constructed than my stock speaker.

          Comments about Warehouse Guitar Speakers ET65 12" 65W British Invasion Guitar Speaker:

          Been wanting to check these speakers out for some time. Put this in a vintage 70's
          Randall RG-40 as an exact replacement for the made in GB Celestion that was in
          the amp originally, which sounded great, by the way. The WGS speaker replaced
          the original Celestion without skipping a beat. Maybe I'm just getting old and going
          deaf, but I swear I could not believe my ears! This speaker far exceeded my expectations
          and sound every bit as good as the excellent vintage speaker it replaced. I've been
          a guitarist since just after the Beatles appeared on Ed Sullivan and believe me when
          I say you can stop searching for this component of your holy grail tone quest. This is
          a great speaker at a great price. One man's opinion.

              Comments about Warehouse Guitar Speakers ET65 12" 65W British Invasion Guitar Speaker:

              I bought 2 of the 8 ohm ET-65 to replace the stock speakers (Celestion 70eighty's) in my Laney IRT212 cabinet. I have 2 main heads that I use (a
              Marshall JVM205H & Carvin X100B). The speakers went in extremely easy, no modifications to the cabinet was needed. I did notice when I compared the Celestion 70eighties with the WGS ET-65 that the WGS speaker had a larger magnet, and had a noticeable weight difference. The WGS also has a deeper cone.

              After installing the WGS ET-65 I started to break them in with my JVM205H. I played them on the clean channel at a low volume for about an hour, before turn the volume up. I still wasn't sold on the tone difference, because the highs were extremely bright (almost to bright) the mids were great but the bottom end was not even noticeable. The next morning I continued to break them in turning the volume up more (about the same as some speaking loudly) and played for about 30 minutes before upping the volume again. This is when the tone of the speaker started to change. the highs seemed still focused but not as harsh as before, and the bottom end started show up. I have about 3 hours on them now and the more I play them the better they get. I can't wait till I get about 10 hours on them and see how they sound.

              Bottom line I am extremely pleased with these speakers, they have made my JVM205H come alive. I cant wait to see how they will change the tone of my Carvin X100B.

                        I recently picked up a Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue as I love the clean tones. However, it did not like to play well with my dirt pedals. The stock Jensen speaker emphasized too much of the high frequencies and made things sound a bit harsh.

                        The ET-65 was recommended to me by several people online, so I thought I would give it a try. I have used WGS speakers in the past with fairly good results, but have been using a lot of Scumback and Weber speakers lately. I was a little hesitant because of the attractive price of the speaker. I mean, how good could it be? It isn't even in the same price bracket as most of the other offerings I normally considered...

                        Well, this speaker did not dissappoint at all! Now I have all the beautiful clean tones I love, but without all the high frequency sizzle with my dirt pedals that was driving my ears crazy. The bottom end is much tighter and handles the low end from the DRRI much better than the stock speaker, and the high frequency is a bit smoother but not muddy at all. There is a little more midrange as well which lends a warmth to the overall tone.

                        I could not be happier with my purchase, and the speaker isn't even fully broken in yet! Absolutely a "must try" for a Deluxe Reverb if you are in the market.

                        This speaker sounds full with nice lows, but not muddy what so ever. I was on the fence after being a Celestion user for 30 years. I am glad I took the chance on these. I love the vintage label also. Adds class to your cabinet. I use these in a 4X12 Albion. It sounds great with my Mesa Recto-Verb and my Axe Fx rig. I hear about people using the ET65s with Veteran 30s. I am not big on mixing speakers. My 4X12 Albion birch cab sounds just right now. These will not be too dark having four of them in your cab.

                          I replaced the stock custom made 8 ohm eminence driver in my 20 watt SwanPro with this 16ohm version. The SwanPro has a 16 ohm tap and this is a good solution for getting slightly better cleans out of a high gain amp, by using all of the windings in the output transformer a slightly improved headroom can be realized- It was not as radical on this amp as my Matchless lightning but still an improvement classy highs and a defined mids, good tight lows -great speaker
