Eminence Legend Series Speakers

Eminence Guitar Legends are specially designed for electric guitar amplifiers. Tuned by skilled ears, these hand-built specials feature a range of materials and ideas from nearly 40 years experience. Models such as the LEGEND B15, 121 and Modeling 12 are state of the art designs which meet the modern-day demand for power handling while other models feature vintage magnet and cone materials to recreate the traditional sounds of lead and jazz guitar.

The most difficult aspect of presenting a guitar speaker to the world is being able to describe its tonal characteristics. Your choice of guitar speakers is at least as important as your choice of pickups or strings. Just as you customize a guitar to suit your sound, so too can you customize - or "hot rod" - your combo with Eminence loudspeakers.

Eminence is fortunate to have one of the foremost authorities on guitar and amplifier tone in the music industry as an endorsing artist. Greg Martin, lead guitarist for the Kentucky Headhunters, was kind enough to lend his ears and hands in an effort to present to you the most realistic and accurate tonal descriptions for each of the Eminence Guitar Legends.

Legend 105

When you need a little extra power, this model is perfect as a general replacement. It has been and continues to be original equipment in many of your favorites. Lots of punch and crunch!

This is Greg Martin's favorite 10". He has them loaded in his Super Reverb! He suggests using this speaker in recording studios as well as in 4X10 cabinets for live gigs. Greg describes the tone as very "jangly" with a meaty low-end and lots of honk. It would be a perfect speaker for anyone playing Country, Blues, or Rockabilly. This speaker works well with Rickenbacker guitars, a Super Reverb or a Super.

Features:

1.5" voice coil, 16 oz magnet.

Performance Ratings:

75Wrms, 99db sensitivity, 100Hz-6KHz usable bandwidth.

Price:

$59


Legend 121

Warm, rich low end, smooth mids and very loud. Greg Martin tried this speaker in 2X12 applications both in "The Twin" and with the Marshall Head, using Strat and Les Paul guitars.

With a Les Paul and The Twin, the speaker is very mellow before it breaks up. It delivers more high end than the Legend V12 and has more headroom. With a Strat, it is pure Fender! Greg recommends this combination for a "Traditional Blues" sound and for Jazz, Funk, Country, or other applications where you need a big, fat, clean sound!

In the 2X12 Marshall application, the Legend 121 is exceptionally clear. Greg suggests that this is a good combination for Heavy Metal or rhythm applications where lots of headroom is desired. The Legend 121 is a great replacement or upgrade!

Features:

2" voice coil, 38 oz magnet.

Performance Ratings:

150Wrms, 99db sensitivity, 80Hz-5KHz usable bandwidth.

Price:

$89


Legend 151

Excellent for use in combos, lending a tremendous raw bottom end and reproducing those tight slapping mids. This is one of Greg Martin's* favorites!

Greg tried the Legend 151 in a Vibroverb. This speaker and a Strat are very clean and smooth. Often a clean speaker lacks bottom end, but this Legend provides some serious "meat." A Strat and a Legend 151 are perfect for the player wanting a 'BB King Blues' tone. With the Les Paul, it is still a real clean sound, but the top end is mellow and singing. If you crank it up, you'll have no problem getting the speaker to break up. Greg recommends this speaker for a "Delta Blues" sound. Greg cranked out tones reminiscent of John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Vaughn, Ronnie Earl, Keith Richards, and Chuck Berry. This is one of the most "legendary" 15" guitar speakers in the industry!

This speaker is particularly well suited for applications in Fender amplifiers. Put it in a Pro Reverb and you've got yourself a Vibroverb.

Features:

2" voice coil, 59 oz magnet.

Performance Ratings:

150Wrms, 99db sensitivity, 80Hz-5KHz usable bandwidth.
