  • 10" Speaker Shootout....Weber...WGS...Jensen...

    Okay, which speaker do you prefer? Just interested on your take regarding these different speakers...



    I'm interested to see which speaker you would pick, and why. I did not shoot this video, but found it to be an interesting compari

    Hmm....... i didnt really like any of them when, im assuming here, he switched over to the bridge p'up, but the Emi sounded pretty good to me. WGS was my least favorite, quiet and sorta muffled.

      Totally agree...I preferred the Eminence...with the Weber in a close second...

        I have a Weber Alnico Silver Bell and an Eminence Lil Buddy hemp cone. Both sound great and are very similar tone-wise. Biggest difference is power handling - Weber is 25 watts and Eminence is 50. Eminence is a bit louder, but not much.

          Thanks for posting that. I'm considering upgrading the speaker on my Pro Jr. and this was useful (although since all the amps tested here were 2x10s, I'm not sure it will translate directly). Anyway -- I also agree that to me the Eminence sounded the best.

            I mean, this isn't really a comparison of the speakers as each of them seemed to be in a different amp, no? If that's the case, there's differences in tube bias, cap voltage, resistor variance and a whole string of tolerance differences that would effect the tone. If he really did just put a bunch of different speakers in a bunch of different amps, this is a bogus comparison, and more like "which amp sounds best."

              I agree. The differences were really subtle (mainly due to the Youtube and the nature of the setup).
              The WSG might excell in overdriven sounds. The main advantage of the NEO is the weight and the sound is not that different at the end.

                Didn't care for any, but of those tested I liked the Eminence the best.

                  Yeah, I was kinda surprised that the Eminence sounded so good...

                  This one is a pretty cool shoot-out, as well...

                    Eminence = best bang for the buck.

                      Well, I'm not going to click on the button until I listen to them a few more times, but after two listenings, I'd say the "Weber". The Eminence has the most overall presence, but yet what you hear on the Warehouse sounds at first like it's a bit muffled or nasally, but it's bringing more warmth to the lower end and a deeper cabinet tone to the amp. The Weber seems to be a good balance of both of those attributes. But as I said above, I'd want to listen to them several more times. It be cool though.

                      Edit: Well, came back for another listen. At least through my PC speakers, I'm liking the Weber the best. Best combination of warmth and presence and the notes seem to bloom more than on the other speakers. But again, I'm hearing the most presence on the Eminence, but that's not necessarily what I think I'd want to emphasize on a Fender amp since I'd be hitting it more with single coil guitars anyway.

                      Here's a another speaker vid to mess with the minds.

                      Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                      I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

                        I have 2 Weber 10S speakers - one Ceramic, one Alnico. The Ceramic was $30, Alnico $40

                        Both are great speakers from Weber's lowest cost "Signature" product line.

                        I have been interested in getting an Eminence Legend 12" for an external cab, but I have read too many conflicting posts. Some claim that Emi Legends are great speakers and others that claim Eminence Legend 1258s are stock in many Fender amps and lack highs and/or tight lows.

                          I have two variants of eminence legends and I think both of those accounts are off. Both have VERY present high ends and a tight round bass response. I like them, but I do think the high end may be too present for some setups.

                            See, my Fender Hot Rod had an Eminence speaker in it, but I'm not sure which one it is. Just did not have the sparkle that my older Hot Rod had (which had a factory Celestion in it). Picked up a Celestion 70/80, and it sounds better to my ears. I am curious about the Webers, though... Also wondering of an actual Eminence Legend would sound better...

                              This is where I get confused... I have read in several places that some Fender stock speakers are Fender-labeled Emi Legends - and Fender stock speakers are often looked down upon. At the same time, I've read accolades for the Emi Legend series.

                              It just goes to the old addage that half of what you read / hear is untrue. The key is figuring out which half.
