Very wonderful.

From what I've read, this speaker is supposedly a massaged V30 design. I cannot speak for the english made ones (or the Mesa specific ones), but I can speak for a direct comparison to the chinese made ones (such as the ones that come in Orange cabs). Using that for my frame of reference, wow. The CV is, to my thankful ears, far and away a superior speaker. The midrange focus is no longer sharp/piercing and the low end is just a bit tighter. Overall the speaker is much more articulate and complex chords shine through in their entirety (that being said, I speculate that the shift in the mids probably has the lion's share to do with this). I greatly enjoy that I can boost the treble on my pedals and it doesn't sound fizzy or unpleasant. If you're looking for a great speaker that will play nice in a great many roles, I suggest you try this one.

Eminence CV-75 speaker the bomb!!!

This speaker sounds absolutely incredible!!!! I replaced it in a Peavey Bandit which had a sheffield 1230 and this CV-75 just improved the sound 2 fold. This really makes my amp sing. It gives you great power and sounds just like described. Its a British voiced amp with tight bass/nice low and high mids/and a airy high which is wonderful not harsh at all. Cleans sound smooth and with heavier gain gives you a rockin classic rock to 80's metal kinda sound. You can defintely tell Eminence did their homework for ten years developing this speaker. Thanks Eminence for a great product and Sweetwater for the awesome service.

No ice pick

I ordered the CV-75 for 3 reasons: it is made in the USA, it has a sensitivity of 102.2 dB, and, according to reviews it lacked the fizzy treble spike top end I wish to avoid. I installed the speaker in a 1986 Carvin 1X12 X-Amp. I get a round, full tone with plenty of bite but without the ice pick treble I mentioned, even with the presence control turned up. The sensitivity lets the amp get loud and stay clean. I get distortion from OD pedals although the amp will overdrive nicely (6L6/12AX7 tubes) if I want. My LaPatrie classical guitar also sounds very nice through the amp now.It's hard to try a bunch of speakers when you know up front they can't be returned. I did good trying this one. I prefer it over the Celestion G12M-70, G12T-75, and Weber California 12 I've tried in the amp over the last 29 years.Summary; the CV-75 is a loud efficient speaker good for clean or distorted tones. I've played rock and country gigs using Telecaster and Carvin DC-125 guitars. It would probably feel at home in a 4X12 sealed cab as well as a 1-2X12 open back combo. I am happy.

these are good

...much prefer the cv-75 over the g12h-30 70th. Warm but still resonant, un-harsh in the high end & not mid-scooped like the g12h-30
