GreatSpeaker choice is totally subjective. Eminence is a great value.I built a monster of a cabinet with a Cannabis Rex and a Wizard with the jacks in the front 3 in total. It was 83.00$ for everything, black carpet 6.00$ a yard 2x4, 3/4 mdx, screws, Gorilla Glue, wire, amp jacks, jack plate (tolex is way spendy). Weight was not an issue for the finished product. I didn' t dovetail the corners since this is not a drawer. I am a master wood craftsman and say what you will, for this application 2x4 was the ticket. The Porter Cable dovetailing jigg only holds 12 inch board anyway and is held with glue only. It is funny how a 2x12 cabinet could run over 700.00$ Wow ? Why ? Ok, I forgot to mention 10,000.00 in tools, and a work shop..Great even if you just put it on a piece of plywood.

An excellent choice.I recently replaced the stock speaker in my Fender Blues Jr. with the Cannabis Rex. I also had the amp completely re-tubed and biased and had a couple of tonestack mods done. The effect is like having a completely new amp with more warmth, clarity, volume, and headroom.

Smooth As Glass!I just got this speaker from SWEETWATER. A DEMO. Installed it in my Fender Blues Jr III and retubed it with JJ's. WOW, what a TONE machine! Once it breaks in it will even better. Super Crystaline cleans and loud..With Overdrive has some serious grit in a good way. Most likely the best Eminence has to offer IMO. Great price and customer service with two thumbs up. You guys at SWEETWATER never cease to amaze me! Thanks ... Buy This Speaker NOW!!!

Smooth and detailedI used to run a swamp thang (scooped fenderish tone) in my modded blues junior, and it sounded great. I wanted to try the C Rex because I felt it would add more meat and smoky flavor to the low mids. I play a John Mayer strat, and the C Rex delivers with my blues junior every time. A It will take awhile to break in, but the dark and rich jazz tones and smooth blues tones are there from day one!

One regret: hesitating as long as I did!What I was hearing from the little Fender Princeton 65 didn't pair with the sound I wanted with either the Epi Joe Pass (Samick) or the custom acoustic steel string with K&K's.
Speaker cab weight is crucial at my age, so the Fender suited my needs otherwise.
So, after confirming a few details with a Sweetwater contact, I finally plumped for this Eminence CR (which popped right into place) and it changed all the possibilities for both guitars.
And the wider, richer sounds now justify getting the SM57 for jams.

Cannabis Rex in Blues Junior NOSNeeded to tame the spikey highs and shrillness in my sound with a Blues Junior NOS. Did not want to spend the money for the MODS that are flying around out there quite yet.
This speaker was just what I was looking for. Shipping was quick...got a courtesy call to let me know it was on it's way, and I was very pleased with what it did to my sound on this stock amp. Great bass and low end response (which was lacking before) , and a nice smooth overall spectrum....took out the shrill highs but is very clear, and this is all without being broken in. It sounds great. I play an original Telecaster Deluxe with the humbucker pickups, and it now is a great combination. I am very pleased with this speaker and my service from Sweetwater. Highly reccommended ...it worked great for me.

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDEREDI HAVE A BLACKSTAR 20 WATT TUBE HEAD THAT SEEMED A LITTLE TOO BRIGHT THROUGH ANY SPEAKER I TRIED. THIS ONE TAMED THAT WITHOUT SOUNDING DULL AND GAVE ME THAT BOOMING LOW END I NEEDED. IT ALSO SEEMS MORE EFFICIENT THAN THE CELESTION I WAS USING SO IT'S A WINNER ALL THE WAY AROUND ESPECIALLY FOR THE PRICE.
