Celestion G12 Century Vintage 12" 8 Ohm Neo Guitar Speaker 60W
Celestion G12 Century Vintage 12" 8 Ohm Neo Guitar Speaker 60W is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just do it!Just put these in my Marshall TSL 2x12 combo and got rid of the stock Wolverines. Saving 15 lbs (really 15 lbs) was great but the speakers are much more responsive and have fantastic dynamic range. The highs are clear and the lows are full. On the clean channel, the headroom is sufficient and on overdrive, the distortion has great tone and not flat/fizzy/muddy like the old speakers.The amp now weighs 65 lbs and is once again my favorite gigging amp. I also ordered the cut out plastic/aluminum side handles from Parts Express. They fit perfectly, are a nice quality and make it much easier to move the amp.The speakers are such a bargain at the Parts Express price compared to everywhere else I looked. They shipped quickly and arrived in a few days. Very happy with the company and the products.Save your back and improve your tone! Ceramic magnets will be a thing of the past one day except for those that are hung up on "Vintage" and will pay more for the marketing spin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds Great, and I Can Now Lift My AmpI have experience with a competitor's Neomydium 10" PA speakers I use in my monitors. They originally had inferior 12" speakers in them. I replacedthem with the 10" Neolites, by routing out 3/8" plywood, and fitting it from thebaffles to the bottom of the horn. Wow, was I ever impressed! I have beenusing Celestions for many years, and when I found this G12 Century VintageNeo speaker, at half the weight of their ceramic (or alinco) magnet types, Irolled the dice. My 30 watt Classic tube amp, was too heavy for my restrictedlifting weight limit, so I replaced its speaker with this one. I was blown away, both by the tight bass, crisp highs, crystal clear clean channel sound, and analmost Brittish Crunch, on the dirty channel. I no longer need to bother band mates to lift my amp, while adding roaring tube sound. They (after trying the first one, I quickly ordered a second) were very well packed, and arrived inperfect condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dynamic range for 3.5pounds, good bassI've been drooling to try thes in my amps but been too expensive till now.I build my own tube amps so to me the spkr is an important feature. PROs: light weight, good bass response and bright hi's too, cool looking radiator fins, killer price (well, today's price).CONs: Made in China, arrived loose packed (not individually boxed), has four mounting holes (my amp has eight captured bolts, needed to drill out my spkr for four more holes). After breaking in for 48hrs running hifi audio into voicecoil at moderate volume, it still sounds a bit brittle compared to the Alnico MojoTone 25W spkr I was using before; maybe needs more breakin time. BUT has very HI OUTPUT compared to the Alnico, and MORE BOTTOM END. I'll bet this would make for a great low power Bass Amp Cab; four in a box for 200W. aAnd LOOKS way cool in my cabinet! My amp shows off the rear of the spkr so for me that's a plus. I would not have bought these at a buck and a half, but at Half That, yes a great deal. Recommended. But the price varies wildly, i can't figure that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Neo I have foundI've tried a number of Neos and always like the weight but never liked the sound as much as a good ceramic. To me, this one sounds like a very good ceramic and weighs way less. At Express's price, it is also competitive price-wise. Of course how a speaker will sound is always dependent with the amp you pair it with, but I tried this in a separate cabinet with my Fender Princeton Reissue and it sounds so great I am in the process of fitting a 12" baffle for the Princeton. Loud, clear and light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Featherweight Vintage 30? OK!Excellent guitar speakers! Basically, they are a slightly smoother Vintage 30. The (lack of) weight is astonishing. I slapped four of these in a Marshall cabinet, and now I can carry it upstairs without breaking a sweat. Love them.
