My setup: Mesa TA-15 with single closed-back 12" cabinet.

I love this speaker. I echo what everyone else says: Smooth sound, without any apparent cone breakup modes (the icepick phenomenon......harsh resonance peaks...I guess there is something to this hemp cone thing). However, it still has a very nice bright top end, which lends itself to good clarity and definition. I've got probably 300 hoiurs on mine, so it's well-broken-in. Probably took abouit 20 hours of playing to break in.

-High sensitivity; great for low-wattage tube amps.
-Sounds wonderful clean.
-Reveals picking articulation very nicely.
-With overdrive, you'll hear all the harmonics you want.
-Smooth, non-fatiguing sound; no harshness, but still plenty bright.
-If you like a darker sound, look elsewhere.
This is a relatively low-watt speaker with high sensitivity. This should be considered by people with low-wattage tube amps. This speaker features a cone with hemp fibers in it. This a popular trend in speaker design these day. Hemp fibers allegedly provides good stiffness but better damping that traditional paper, carbon, or glass cones. Feature-wise, its only missing a cast basket; only has a stamped basket (typical guitar speaker, though).
Well built. Eminence appears to be paying attention to QC. I see no signs of sloppiness in assembly. I don't see any issues that make me doubt that this speaker will last a long time. Packaging is probably overkill, but you can be assured that the magnet isn't going to take any damage during shipping.
Not a cheap speaker compared to other options that are out there, but not excessively pricey. For what you get, it's priced just a tad high. ....... but if you're reading this, you are probably the type that will spend ANYTHING to get the right tone.

I wanted the CREX to sound like everyone's description, and to be fair, the eq curve was about right on target and pleasing. My problem with it, and the reason I removed it, was because no matter how clean I tried to get my tone, there was always a slight perception of distortion present. Not metal distortion, of course, but just a loose bit of wooly furryness on the edges of all the notes. It was a little sloppy sounding. For someone who always uses an overdriven tone this may be fine. But for this reason I'm surprised so many people seem to think this is a good speaker for (traditional) jazz. If you want the ability to get pure cleans I can't recommend it. I found the Red White & Blues to be a more versatile choice in my Fender BDRI.

      Someone said this speaker would improve the sound of my amp and they were right! It sounds great and was definitely worth the money. The sound is warmer and cleaner than the original speakers, even though I'm still breaking it in.

      A great Blues Jr. upgrade

      Comments about Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

      After extensive online research, I purchased this as an upgrade to a Blues Junior III. The online reviews are not wrong: this is a great upgrade for the Blues Jr! The stock speaker is fair, if a bit high-endy; the Cannabis Rex solves almost all of the sonic complaints about the Blues Jr. (upgrading the output transformer is also highly recommended, but I haven't gotten around to that yet).

      The Cannabis Rex tames the spiky sounding highs of the stock speaker, really tightens up the lows, and has a very well defined tonal response, even when pushing the amp or using foundation overdrive pedals. The clarity of each note is a dream come true.

          Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

          This is my second Cannabis Rex. The first one I used in a Traynor YCV40 and it really enriched the voice of that amp. I put this one in a vintage Musicmaster Bass Amp and it came alive. I've read great reviews on this speaker and now I can say positively that it did improve my sound.

          I replaced the V-30 in my blues Jr. and what a difference. I had installed V-30 in 3 Fender amps and my Boogie Express came with one. I doubt I'll buy another speaker other than a Rex. I get much better bass response (tight and distinct) and the highs are just so smooth. If I had only one word it would be "creamy". I read so much about the long break in, but found that each time I play, it just gets better and now with maybe 4 hours of playing and 6-8 hours of radio... If it gets any better WOW!!:)

              I tried this first in a 2x12 Marshall Cab with a DSL50 , sounded ok but not great . I then took it and replaced stock speaker in a Bugera V22 huge improvement . This is my first time replacing speakers as far as I can tell this is a quality speaker for the right application .

                Bought this for use with harmonica. Amp is a clone of a brown Deluxe 6G3. Love this speaker. Very deep, throaty sound with roundness. The speaker is not sharp or harsh at all, yet it lacks nothing in the way of articulation. The subtlety and nuance are still there; the textures, the rasp, the rip...everything. I was worried that it wouldn't have enough character or liveliness, but those worries have been put to rest. May not be the right speaker for every application calling for a 12, but for this application, it is great.
