I used to use Delta Pro 12A's exclusively in my Genz-Benz G-Flex 212's. On a whim I thought I'd give the EM12 Legends a try. DAAANG! I'm glad I did. I never realized how "dark" the Delta's really were until i swapped them out for these. The EM12 Legends just SHINE in the G-Flex cabs! I didnt really have to adjust the EQ on my amps much (Fryette Sig:X's) to make them POP! Granted, im still breaking them in (probably 10hrs in) so these are gonna sound even better than they already do in a few months. I play a bit of everything...Rock, Hard Rock, Country, Blues, Clean soundscapes...And these speakers sound great no matter what I throw at them. They cut through the mix like a hot knife through warm buddah! No top-end shrillness. They seem to handle lows very well without being "flubby". They are very smooth and articulate speakers. And a BIG Shout out to my Sweetwater Rep...Aaron Hoff. He is always there if I need anything and is always quick to follow up on sales and to make sure i got my deliveries intact and on time! Thanks for all you do Aaron!

awesome is all i can say !!

eminence is a awesome company and these em12's are bullet proof! my only regret is purchasing them from sweet water. when brad in customer service told me GOOD LUCK on getting the fourth speaker that he had to back order , and he had no idea when he was going to receive it. his people skills is lacking and unprofessional to say the least. will never do business with again!!

Eminence Rocks!

I'm giving this item 5 stars cause not only am I blown away by this speaker but also by The Governor, Cannabis Rex and even a lot of Eminences OEM offerings especially by the higher dollar amp companies. This particular unit the EM12 got thrown into my Marshall DSL40C for the purpose of bringing the most Furious and Thunderous Down Tuned Riffage while still being able to bring the face melting leads and beautiful clean tones. Mission Accomplished. I haven't even begun to break this bad boy in, and the difference in tone between the stock 70/80 and the EM12 is night and day. I'm playing an LTD EC-1000T with a Fishman Fluence Modern set tuned to C standard and then drop tuning the low string from there too on occasion. I play with 60's lifted up off the fretboard for REAL METAL TONE! The EM12 just handles it no problem. I'm turning my gain up more too and at high volumes the EM is just pumping out back at me perfectly reproduced DEEP power chords that CRUSH! It screams on high notes and on clean with a high headroom amp will fill a room up with beautiful effected chorusy reverby clean tone thats really keeps everything really defined. I swear my TC effects sound more distinct and clear. Anyways great speaker. I've hit it hard for about 8 hours and it didn't sound bad for brand new. Once it breaks in and sweetening up I'm sure it will be even better.

O.M.G.!!! I can't imagine a speaker getting better than this. I needed to replace the speakers in my 4x12. They just could not handle the low end when I play my seven string. I did a massive amount of research and decided to trust Eminence with my tone. I am SOO Glad I did. My rig is a new beast now. Thunderous low end with smooth mids and highs. I bought 2 of the EM12's and paired them with 2 Swamp Thang's. The cabinet can now handle all that my amp can give it. These speakers would be a bargain at twice the price.

Excellent speaker, clean and sounds extremely close to an ElectroVoice classic , I am currently using it in a Rivera 55-12. Just like an ElectroVoice, it lets the tone of the instrument and the amp come through nicely. It doesn't break up, which is why I chose this speaker (any break up I need , I get from pedals).
