    Comments about Eminence Beta-8A Replacement PA Speaker:

    An incredably pristine speaker for vocals, also good for any mid-range instrument. In small rooms use with a good high freq horn and driver in a 2 way system--in large venues or outdoors, use multiples with horns and subs. Within its usable freq range (approx 100Hz being the lowest) and paired with a high quality high frequency horn and driver this is one of the best vocal speakers I have ever heard. Within that range it can easily handle 250W RMS--i personally give it 300. Do not clip the amp!!!!

    Comments about Eminence Beta-8A Replacement PA Speaker:

    I use them in a ported 2x8 cabinet it with a GK MB150 head perfect for acoustic bass, low volume Fender. Best for upright. I have been looking for compatible speakers for this head for about 3 years none gave me the clear warm tone and deep tone as these. I have them wired at 4ohms and have now played six gigs with these and I'm finally satisfied with my sound in a non intimidating amp. Yes I own big killer bass rigs to but for the smaller gigs this is perfect I love 8in bass speakers I always have

    This model was used to replaced 8" woofers in a 15 year old juke box. The fidelity was better than the original...rich and pure1. Highly recommend them.
