Great, Balanced American Voiced Speaker

I've been on a speaker buying kick lately and was looking for a speaker for an open-back Fender chassis. I wanted a "Fender-y" sound that could handle some drive without getting harsh. I'm planning on putting a piezo bridge in my Gibson, so I also wanted a speaker that didn't have any weird frequencies that could unbalance different strings/notes. In my contact with Eminence, they described the TF-1250 as "very classic Fender" and "vintage". I picked the TF-1250 one over the Texas Heat, and then wound up with both of them anyway. I've had night and day experiences putting the same speaker in different cabs (open/closed back, etc.), so your mileage may vary. For example, the Vintage 30 and Tonker I put in the same open-back chassis as the TF-1250 both sounded bad. But the TF-1250 sounds great in it. After reading "Understanding Loudspeaker Data" on Eminence's website, this may be because the Qts of the TF-1250 is perfect for an open-back, but the others' aren't. My experience thus far has been the TF-1250 in an open-back Fender chassis, and the Texas Heat in both an Ear Candy Soverign ported 1x12 and Avatar G112 Classic unported 1x12. The Texas Heat liked the unported, and slightly larger, G112 cab noticeably better than the ported one. Based on the Qts again this would be a better fit. I haven't tried it in an open-back. Incidentally the Tonker was finally happy in both the Soverign and G112, but slightly moreso in the ported cab. I've been playing these through different preamps, pedals, and a stereo rig of cathode-biased EL84 and 6L6 amps, with and without Weber beam blockers on the cabs. After breaking in the TF-1250, here are my observations: The TF-1250 is more balanced across the board than the Texas Heat. The TH has more "cut" than the TF-1250. Based on the frequency response plots, this is probably due to the spike at 2.5 kHz. Aside from the extra "cut", it still sounds less balanced than the TF, especially in the ported 1x12. This may be due to the huge 8 dB notch at 1.6 kHz. The G&L Commanche I've been playing through them has plenty of cut, so I prefer the TF in the response department. I would guess the TF-1250 is less picky about different types of guitars and pedals than the Texas Heat, at the risk of sounding less interesting with some. If you have a vintage single-coil sound and are looking for more cut and edge, the TH is the ticket between these two. The Texas Heat is noticeably brighter in the high treble than the TF-1250. For my tastes, the TF is plenty bright enough, so have to roll off the highs with the TH, especially on axis. Both seem to have similar bass response. The TF may have slightly a little more. The TF-1250 is noticeably more efficient, which it should be with a listed sensitivity of 101.3 dB vs 99.4 dB for the Texas Heat. It's rated at 3X lower wattage, but that's not a problem for me with these amps. The TF-1250 sounds pretty good with gain on all pickup settings. Tumnus, OCD, Hoof, and Angrie Charlie Andy Timmons all sound fine. It is a chimey speaker, but doesn't really get harsh. The Texas Heat rocks for sure, especially clean. But with gain and this guitar, the Texas Heat can be ear piercing and/or harsh in some pedal combinations. I have to be more careful about the pedal/EQ with the TH than the TF in my rig. Both have plenty of clear top end for nice shimmery reverb. I'm keeping the TF-1250. I may sell the Texas Heat, or trade with a friend looking to upgrade a Fender speaker. Both are good speakers, but for my needs and stereo separation, they sound a bit too similar, despite their differences.
