updated review to my original

for a while was thinking of selling my eminence redcoat governor. glad i didnt, i have two htv 112 cabinets i put the cv7516 on the bottom and the governor on top wow, perfect balance, punchy bottom end sparkling highs from the cv7516 and heavy aggressive midrange from the governor now i dont even have to mike my rig at shows if i have my head on 4 with digitech rp 360 in front of the amp my drummer complains asking me to turn it down yeeeeeeehaaaaaa...

Still breaking in but most of the way there...I play loud

I stuck this bad boy in my Peavey 6505+ combo and it brought back clarity and demotions in my amp I didn't know were there. I play a Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid Solo II with Bareknuckle Ceramic Warpig pickups and an ESP Ltd F-400FM with Bareknuckle Pain Killer pickups and used to use an mxr 10 band eq in the effects loop to get rid of the fizzy high end on the amp. Thanks to this speaker I don't use the 10 band eq anymore. The stock speaker in the 6505+ is junk, great little combo for the $. But the speaker just wasn't cutting it. The gain on the amp was completely unusable beyond 5-6. Forget trying to shape the eq with the stock speaker! Right out of the box the CV75 sounded amazing. The gain is useable now, bass is tight and sweet, mids are full, the high end isn't as shrill or fuzzy sounding. Notes are clear. This speaker is LOUD! Maintains clarity at high volumes. I've been a Mesa/Boogie guy since I started playing guitar in 1996. Loved the Celestion v30s and the EV Black shadow speakers Mesa used to use. The CV75 beats them both. Not sure how this speaker works with other styles of music but for all out drop tuned metal (I tune A,E,A,D,F#,B) this speaker is amazing! I can't believe that they are so cheep! Cost $40 less than a V30 and sounds better (IMHO). Not just a good speaker for the price but awesome st any price, I would have paid twice the price and not complained. The guys at sweetwater were awesome. They emailed me a tracking number quickly, speaker arrived super fast, emailed me asking me how I liked my purchase, gave me my own sales rep (that answers anytime I call, within business hours of course), and has been just super awesome to work with. They definitely have my business from here on out. Treated me like I was a rockstar (I'm a construction worker, lol). When I get a mesa cab for my dual rectifier I'm putting CV75s in it.

Reminds me of Mesa UK V30

Beautiful speaker. As I said, it really reminds me of my Mesa/UK V30 (which is voiced differently than a standard V30). Very smooth & cuts through a band mix so nicely. Sounds absolutely fantastic when mic'd with a 57. I play in multiple cover bands w/material from the 70's-present, and I think this does a good job with both for lead & rhythm in most if not all genres. I have a lot of speakers, so thought it might be helpful to compare a few popular ones: Standard V30 is more pronounced in upper mids, slightly less bass (than the CV-75). Creamback is smoother & more modern "cut" in midrange. Eminence Governor is more full range, maybe a little more low end, a little more brittle on the top.

absolute perfect tonal balance

I've got the governor but this speaker sings I like the midrange of the governor but sometimes it's overbearing the cv7516 fixes that it's a perfect balance with punchy bass smooth midrange and sparkling high end it's the best sound I've ever heard in my life I'm getting one more next week and selling the gov I've got a blackstar 20 watt head and two htv 112 cabs now they'll both have cv 7516s with a distortion pedal like the rat on the front of the amp this speaker dies Black Sabbath all the way dontae thank you my brother and all you awesome people of sweetwater ps Mitch Gallagher do some grand funk videos thank you brothah
