Just thought I'd share this with you folks. I was wanting to change the speaker in my highly sought after "bastard child" Marshall JCM900 1x12 combo (and no, I don't want to trade with any of you boutique guys (j/k)). The amp sounded raspy, the mids were not defined, and it seemed the speaker kicked over to overdrive right away. And this was at 6 on the master volumn (master goes to 20 on the JCM 900). So while I was toying with the idea of flying down a dirt road and launching this out the back of my truck, I noticed a ad for the Eminence Patriot/Red Coat series speakers in my latest geetar mag.
So I found a dealer in Georgia, BLTSound.com and told Bernie what I had, and then what I was looking (hoping) for. He recommended the "Cannabis Rex" (I like saying that), it would tame the amp until I pushed, then the amp would kick the speaker into overdrive. So for about the price of a new pup (+ sh/in), I thought I'd give it a try.
Man, did this P.O.S come to life! It's nice and warm/bluesy at low volumn. And then when I turn the master up, everything is still pretty much defined. Plenty of highs and lows, and I hated the mids before, and now I have the mids at 7 cause they really break thru. It's like having a new amp.
Now to launch that salad bowl Celestion G12t75.
