Product Details

Celestion Heritage G12H 55 Hz 12" 8 Ohm Guitar Speaker 30W

If the G12M was to become a classic, it was the G12H (55) with its heavier magnet that really characterized the sound of rock guitar for the new breed of player that emerged in the 1960s. Listen to any Hendrix recording and the chances are you're hearing the unmistakably creamy tones of the G12H. Originally available in two versions – low resonance for bassists and high resonance for guitarists – both were in fact embraced by guitar players for their unique tonal characteristics.

Celestion Heritage G12H 55 Hz 12" 8 Ohm Guitar Speaker 30W
Celestion Heritage G12H 55 Hz 12" 8 Ohm Guitar Speaker 30W is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!This is an absolutely awesome rock guitar speaker with the best low-end (deep and tight) I've ever experienced. It also has a lot of presence, i.e., is very articulate in the upper mids, while allowing those classic Marshall-esque creamy distorted tones. I must warn you, however, that this speaker takes FOREVER to break in, and can sound harsh until it does. I ran a loud stereo with rock music thru it for a month (by the way, listening to recorded music thru this speaker reveals how just how full range it is--could be used for hifi ). Even then, I had to play guitar thru it for another week or so until it hit its stride. Worth the wait, however, and fully worth the cost. I've never heard anything like it. Another tip: it sounds better in a ported or open back cabinet than a small sealed 1x12. A sealed cabinet might work in a bigger box or larger format like 4x12.

What are the specs for a diy enclosure calculation (Vas Fs Qts) for the celestion G12H-55   Thanks.  I cant find them. I have found them here at PE for a number of enclosures. Just not on this page.

Asked by: MarkNtr
Guitar speakers do not have the same type of designs as regular woofers do. They are designed to be comfortable in large boxes or open back and only play down to around 70-80 Hz
