Electric guitars, guitar amplification, and the birth of Rock-n-Roll in the 1950's collectively established a new use for loudspeakers. Speaker choices were limited in those days and amplifier manufacturers had to purchase products that were common to other applications. Usually, this meant a low-power speaker, often with an Alnico magnet, and limited cone and coil travel.

Due to the nature of the speaker's construction, the sound of the guitar and amplifier combination was impacted by the speaker design. Amplified guitar was a bit more aggressive duty than most other speaker applications at the time and the speakers were frequently challenged in terms of their mechanical movement and linearity. Guitarist learned how to control this non-linearity and use the resulting tonal characteristics to their advantage. Speaker break-up became cool and was a desired feature by most guitarists. The great guitar tones we know now are a result of those events.

Although there are a multitude of distinctive guitar speaker tones available today, they can be broken down into two main categories. We have Marshall and Celestion to thank for the distinctively "British tones" that we are so familiar with. Fender, Peavey, and SLM (Crate/Ampeg) worked with speaker companies like Eminence, Oxford, CTS, JBL, and Electro-Voice to establish tones that are distinctively "American".

Eminence is proud to present the Patriot™ and Red Coat™ series of guitar speakers. Incorporating both British and American cone technology into speakers that are manufactured in the USA gives us the ability to provide you with virtually any tone you desire. Be it British or American, clean or dirty, big bass or screaming highs, we have a speaker that will allow you to "Pick Your Sound".

Eminence Patriot Ragin Cajun 10" Guitar Speaker 75W 8 Ohm
Eminence Patriot Ragin Cajun 10" Guitar Speaker 75W 8 Ohm is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as I heard on YoutubePackage arrived within three weeks and packaging was excellent. Each item was nice and tight so no movement during delivery.I had both speakers changed within 1.5hrs and hooked up to my guitar. I gave my amps a total workout and I'm very happy with the quality of the speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOUD!I bought a pair of these to match with a pair of Alnico speakers in a 4x10 guitar amp setup. The amp is actually a Fender 5F6A copy (Tweed Bassman). I needed something that had the same sensitivity as vintage alnicos but with more bass response. These did it. They are LOUD when compared with most Ceramic-magnet speakers in this price range. They also have a nice response. Many OEM eminence drivers for various amp companies have an undesirable upper-midrange 'honk' and brittle highs. The Ragin' Cajuns did not have this.The only knock I have in features is that there is not a 16ohm version of it available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Tone, But Lacks The Bass I Was ExpectingInstalled a 'Cajun in my Fender Super Champ XD, which is a SS pre-amp with a tube power side- the way to build a hybrid amp- after it was obvious it is the most-recommended replacement speaker to address the SCXD's scant bass response. Now, you can't make a chicken swim, no matter how you dress him up as a duck- the RC just did not improve the SCXD's bass response as much as I was hoping. Don't get me wrong- both the amp and the speaker are very good, just that all the "hype" from user forums caused perhaps unrealistic expectations- we are talking only 18 watts and a 10" speaker. Otherwise, the RC is a fine speaker. I usually play music with a particular group of guys weekly, and one of them also plays through a SCXD, with the original speaker. My tone is richer than his- I play a MIA strat whereas his is a Squier, and I am a better player, but it's obvious that the RC speaker is contributing, too. I'd buy it again- there's no room for a 12 in there, and it did improve my tone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bass, top end sorta cuts, brash, like it!I have two of these in the bottom of my blackface super reverb and a jbl d110f and 10 greenback on the top. The amp sounds as good as it ever has with this combination. If you've got good equipment they will deliver. Big sound, brash, and ballsy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT SpeakerReally shines when you put some wattage on it. I tried several different speakers in my traveling 2x10 cab that I use with an old 40 watt Bandmaster head. I tried a Copperhead, one of my old JBL D110f, a Jensen Neo and a few others. I build and repair amps so I always have lots of speakers to try. Anyway, I ended up putting the Cajun and a Tone Tubby ceramic in this cab for an outdoor show. I had liked the Tubby at lower volumes around the shop. It and the Cajun are bother loud w/ about a 99 db rating. Man o man when we cranked it up the Cajun blew me away and when I started hitting the cab with some different distortion pedals it sounded unreal. Second night I miced the Cajun, not the Tubby. The tone is hard to describe and it won't be for everybody. It is somehow thick yet clear. It's not your typical Fender, Vox or Marshall sound. I blew the Tubby so while I'm waiting for the new warranty one to arrive, I'm gonna try a Copperhead next to the Cajun. The Copperhead sort of sounds like a C12N to me, very balanced with tight bass and just enough (not much) high end rolled off. The CH would probably be a better speaker in a single speaker combo, unless it was a very high power 1x10 combo. To sum up, I think this speaker really shines at higher volumes, but although 'full,' the bass is not super tight nor are the highs extended or colored, so it kinda needs to be paired with something else if you want the whole pallete.

Eminence Patriot Ragin Cajun 10" Guitar Speaker 75W 8 Ohm

This speaker will work in a Peavey Delta Blues 210 BT right?

Asked by: Keith RIchards
As long as each speaker in the amplifier is rated for 8 ohms from the factory, this will work as a replacement.
