Eminence Basslite S2012 Neo 12" Bass Guitar Speaker 150W 8 Ohm
Eminence Basslite S2012 Neo 12" Bass Guitar Speaker 150W 8 Ohm is rated 4.6364 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crazily lightweightA good and amazingly lightweight speaker, though not the right thing for me: I got it to load a 12" extension cabinet I use with my Gallien-Krueger MB150, and found it's tone to be very different than the speaker in that amp, so much so that I'm afraid it won't be workable. It is a very bright speaker with a strong response in the 1 to 2k region relative to the speaker in the GK...I'm bummed it wasn't right for me, because it made that cabinet so much lighter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bass MonitorAlways use Eminence but this is the first for a Bass guitar. Using a wedge monitor box with the recommended cubic feet and vent, this speaker performs consistentlyall night long. Just thumps along parting the Bassman's hair (what he has!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT for Bass combo amp!My friend is teaching me Bass and I needed something more than a 15watt/8" speaker to hang with acoustics. He put a Basslite S2012 in the final version of PEAVEY's BASC112 and now I play with authority with the acoustics. We've even jammed just Bass and Drums and the clarity of my Made in USA PEAVEY FURY comes through even when pushed. I'm not up on Xmax and SPL but I'm told the Basslite has better numbers compared to stock. I'm LOVIN' IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in a vintage Fender cab!I put two of these puppies in a '66 Bassman/Showman Fender vintage cabinet, along with some dense closed-cell foam from Michael's art supply store to tighten up the sound (based on advice from Anthony at Eminence). My band mates freaked - a richer, fatter tone than any of my previous set-ups, including Hartke, Genz Benz, SWR, and even Aguilar. They're light, they're right, and the tone is out of sight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Bass guitarI replaced a driver in a Gallien and Kruger bass amp. It was a good fit but required moving the transformer as the basket was a little deeper than the original Eminence bass driver. It was worth the extra effort. Bass is cleaner and tighter than ever.

Eminence Basslite S2012 Neo 12" Bass Guitar Speaker 150W 8 Ohm

I want to use two of the Basslite s2012's in a 4 cubic foot enclosure using two 4 inch ports...what frequency would you suggest I tune the box to?   By your estimation, what length should I make the ports?   Thanks. 

Asked by: Dionysus
In that size box I would tune to 45 Hz. That would be two 4 inch diameter ports that are 4 inches long each.

will this work in a selaed enclosure?

Asked by: jackierad
Yes, but to get the best extension from it a vented cabinet is recommended.

is this all the 12" you carry for Bass speakers?

Asked by: MrBluesBassman
No. Parts Express carries more speakers that almost any company I know of. I would suggest you perform a search on their website for 12" bass guitar speakers and 12" bass speakers. I am confident you will find several to choose from.Good Luck
