Definitely a great bargain for an upgrade.

First off, my main amp is a Marshall DSL40C with a Creamback speaker. By using an A/B foot switch, I prefer to separate my signal between my Gains (Marshall) from my Cleans (Peavey Studio Pro 112). The Peavey definitely needed an upgrade from the stock "Blue Marvel" speaker. I chose the Cannabis purely on it's popularity among Sweetwater customers. In blind faith, I ordered it and popped it in. It was a huge improvement and for $ a crazy cheap one! It has a nice, full tone and handles the 65 watt load very well. THANKS, Sweetwater!!

Go to modern Fender speaker

This is the second one of these I've tried, first was in a NOS Blues Jr, totally got rid of the ice pick highs. This one I got from Sweetwater went into a new 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb, I can not recommend this speaker enough. The stock speaker wasn't fully broke in but neither was this when installed, the ice pick highs removed, can now turn the treble up to 7 without making my head hemorrhage. The lows are nice and full, mids are there but not dominant, and the highs are just right, just enough top end to cut and shape the tone but not going to cut heads off when pointed at a crowd. These do take a while to break in so I'm sure it'll just get better like the last one. Now Sweetwater couldn't of been better to buy from, this was my first purchase and I was blown away, packed well, sent a huge catalog for me, and packed bags of candy for the little one, very very impressed, will be buying from them again!

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.

Smooth and detailed

I 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!
