    Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

    I have a Marshall JTMC12 1X12" Cabinet that came with a Celestion G12 Heritage 80 watt Speaker. When the Celestion speaker decided to take the dirt nap, I knew I was going to use the cab to build a high powered very portable rig supporting my Crate 150 watt Power Block Head, GNX-4 Pedal and this cab. My kid could roadie this rig because it weighs nothing as components. I researched speakers that could handle 150 watts RMS @ 8 Ohms and had at least a 2" voice coil as I planned on blowing the doors off the house if necessary. I chose the Eminence Patriot Texas Heat and that was the best decision I ever made. It's been serving me for about ten years now, and I installed a solid wood filler strip in the cab to seal it, and I'm running my new Bugera G5 into it. The cab. still supports the crate Power Block head rig when I need it but for in the house I gave my 1983 JCM 800 2204 half stack a rest and I'm using the Bugera at the low power (1/10th watt) and 1 watt settings. It's almost too much speaker for anything under 1-5 watts, but still sounds wonderful. At five watts, I can duplicate a miniature 4X12" chunky crunch at a real usable volume. I will buy these again because I'm saving my 1985 original G12T75's in the 1960A cab so they don't get damage from age, or abuse as they are near impossible to find anymore. The ability to run the Texas Heat speaker at different frequencies with the US/UK sweep control on the Bugera lets me dial in any tone I want they're that versatile, clean, or snarling nasty. Excellent high power ability without the high power requirement to get a good tone, even at low volumes. Wonderful bass, and mids with my ES-339 clean. Love these Eminence Patriot Series Texas Heat Speakers! I get many compliments on the tone factor of my rig. It has given me my money's worth in volumes...pun intended!

        Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

        Years ago, I started pairing Eminence speakers with Celestions to increase tone depth. The Texas Heat and Ragin Cajun are two of my favorites. "Texas Heat" is a great description for this speaker.

        Eminence has clear specs and audio samples on their web site and their customer service is second to none. When I first started swapping speakers, I called Eminence and their CS person was actually an audio tech who helped me choose based on my musical preferences, amp, cabinet, and environment. When you pair two different speakers, pay attention to the sensitivity ratings of both so they'll give you equal volume.

            I put the Texas Heat in a Fender Stage Lead amp and it made all the difference. I would guess it sounds better than when the amp was new.

            Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

            I bought a champion 40, while original speaker was good, it would buzz at 5 and rattle at 6, I replaced it with the Texas Heat and the tonal quality is better and now nice and clean to almost 9 on volume. Very pleased

            The Super One

            By ROY PILGRIM

            from Bryan, Texas

            Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

            I have a 70's Silver Face model Fender Deluxe Rev that had a weak speaker due to the age of the amp. I was concerned about replacing the speaker because I like to keep equipment in its original condition due to appreciation, retaining resale value, etc. Several years ago I had replaced the speaker in another amp with the Patriot Texas Heat & was happy with that, so, I decided to go with the same deal on my little DR. I amp very happy with the performance & sound right now, and the speaker has not even seated in, or broken in well at this point. I can use it soft, or crank it, and there is no sacrifice for tone or clarity any way one chooses to play thru it. It's definitely a real winner that I'm pleased with.

            Excellent replacement for valveking 112

            Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

            A nice improvement over the stock speaker on the peavey valveking 112, now the bass have more clarity and definition and the highs are not as harsh as before.

            Great For Harmonica

            By Chris Balding

            from Tallahassee, FL

            Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

            Acquired a used Peavey ValveKing 112 dirt cheap, so I thought I?d give it a whirl. Was never big on 1X12 combos for harp. Based on common consensus, swapped out the stock speaker with a Texas Heat. The amp now has incredible bite and cut without being barky or shrill. Tremendous, throaty growl and powerful low end when pushed hard. In fact, the harder you push it, the bigger and badder it sounds. I recently bought another ValveKing 112 as a backup because I love this setup so much now. Another Texas Heat went into the new amp without a second thought. Been using tweed 4X10 amps for the better part of 20 years. This speaker has made me think about things very differently now. Instant tone; just add Heat.

            Unbelieveable speaker

            By Chris

            from Punta Gorda, FL

            Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

            As a die hard southern rock and blues player and fan, I'd say the Texas Heat was absolutely worth every penny. This speaker completely changed the character of my fender combo. It handles overdrive great, and it has a fat bottom end with a wide prominent midrange sweep which gives it a huge, fat sound. The treble is bell like, not sparkly or chimey which is what I prefer. If you're into the power trio thing and are the only guitarist in a band, this will really help fill in any frequency gaps in the sound. Eventually I plan on getting 4 more for my Marshall cab. Definately recommended!

            Good speaker but lacks high-end

            By Timbo

            from Ohio

            Comments about Eminence Patriot Texas Heat 12" 150W Guitar Speaker:

            I put one of these in my Fender Blues Jr. It was a decent trade-off, as I gained mid-range and low-end punch, but some of the treble tonality and sustain kind of washed out. Held true for my guitars with Humbuckers as well as the ones with single coils. Good speaker for the price, though.
