Texas Heat 150

I play through a Peavey Valveking 212 and one of the speakers went bad. I did some research and concluded these Texas Heat 150s was the way to go. I wanted them matched so I went ahead and got two from Sweatwater and put them in. Well the other night I had the house to myself so I put them to the test. I even used my wireless and turned it up to about four and got in the other room and played. Four is very loud on this amp but the sound was amazing. I use a lot of distortion even though I am sixty three years old and only play rock music.What I was really impressed with was the clarity on both distortion and clean. My opinion is you can't buy a better speaker at any price.

Awesome 12

I have two of these installed into a 1975 Peavy Classic. Amp was cheap and after a tube change and a few minor adjustments, I felt the next step was a speaker change... The '75 Classic came with Eminence speakers that looked like standard PA speakers... metal cone and huge magnet. I wanted to get the same brand speakers as stock, but upgrade in sound. I play a lot of blues/country/alternative/classic rock and use a Fender Strat mostly. I really like where these speakers took the sound of this amp. Super clean tones. You even retain the sound of the speaker and amp when using effects properly. To drive these speakers/amp I use a XO Big Muff with the tone cut. I still get a lot of definition and clarity in the speaker but it's chunky and heavy. Great for certain types of alernative and doom/stoner metal or a classic rock style solo. A very economic choice to get some great speakers that bring old amps back to life and likely would improve a vast number of new stock amps 12".

brought a beat up old amp back to life

I got a classic Mesa Boogie Son of the Original Boogie (SOB) at a pawn shop for a killer deal, the poor thing needed some TLC, I got it new tubes and that made the fact that the speaker was long dead blaringly obvious. I did some searching around the internet and the speaker everyone was saying I should put in was way out of my price range, So I did some searching and made my way to the Eminence site, I have a few amps with Eminence speakers in them and they always sounded great. after some listening through some of the samples I decided that the Texas Heat was the sound I was after (since the SOB is based off the MK 1 which was a Princeton mod originally). Through this amp I play blues, country, classic rock, americana and rockabilly and all of it is absolutely crisp and incredible. I haven't really thrown heavy distortion at it but that's not how I play. This speaker brought my amp back to life like nothing I could have imagined. Also always love purchasing through Sweetwater, the best customer service, selection and prices.

Worth changing

I thought the original speaker sounded good for clean tone , but when I played driven tones through the original special fender eminence speaker, the higher frequencies were harsh and shrilly, the sustain and musicality was not there; so after reading about other people's thoughts on their experience, it seemed that the general consensus was that the Texas heat sounded better.lThe driven tones are more smooth rounded and not harsh creamier and musical , the higher notes are still l clear without the shrill, and all frequencies are balanced , bottom end, mid frequencies and headroom are clean and musical. I'm glad I changed to this speaker everything sounds better , very happy about buying this speaker,

The Perfect Mate to a Fender Amp and Axe!

No doubt about it, the Texas Heat speaker was MADE for Fender amps and guitars. I own a 2013 Hot Rod Deluxe iii which came with a Chinese Celestion 70/80 speaker, which I immediately replaced with an old Eminence Legend 125 I had hanging around in the parts closet. That was a good decision, as the amp came alive and began to "breathe" more in the mids and highs, plus it really tightened up the flabby bass. But not really happy with the amp's sound and after reading rave reviews about the Texas Heat for the past few months, I decided to slam one in the HRD and see if there was any significant improvement. Boy, was there. I had to turn the volume DOWN because of the increased volume due to the speaker's high efficiency, and the highs and mids just jump out at you without being unbalanced. It let the natural voicing of the amp loose, and you get tons of the Fender signature sound, especially crystalline in the clean channel. But the speaker is also impressive in the mid range, being able to project warm, round jazz tones as well as any I've heard. A very impressive speaker that could take on just about any type of tonal challenge I chose to throw at it. Fender ought to make these the standard issue in their amps and quit messing around with cheaper speakers. People would be GLAD to buy a Fender amp at a bit higher price if they sounded like THIS one!Bottom line: This speaker was made for Fender amps, especially the tube variety. And if you really want to hear the Tele twang and bite, and the Strat "quack," you need to run this speaker. Period.
