Product Details

Eminence Red Coat The Wizard 12" Guitar Speaker 75W 8 Ohm

It all started with the British Invasion, that unmistakable sound that took America by storm from across the Atlantic to right in your face. And now Eminence puts it within easy reach with the Red Coat™ series of guitar amp speakers. Engineered and manufactured in the U.S. with British-inspired cones, making it easy to "Pick Your Sound." Seven-year manufacturer's warranty.

wiz'ard - n. a 12" speaker with enchanting tonal characteristics borrowed from the Private Jack and The Governor

Specifications: • Power handling: 75 watts RMS • VCdia: 1.75" • Impedance: 8 ohms • Frequency Range: 70-5,500 Hz • Sensitivity: 103 dB 1W/1m • Magnet weight: 56 oz. • Dimensions: Overall diameter: 12.02", Cutout diameter: 10.97", Depth: 5.2".

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".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loud and Efficient with Great ToneReplaced the OEM speaker in a Crate V-18 open back tube amp. The difference was astonishing. Pristine airy highs, warm mids, and a tight bottom. High SPL's with minimal input. In other words.....LOUD!! Very good pick articulation. It really finished my customized/modded version of this particular amp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice DetailOther customers have described these drivers as being "articulate" I definitely agree. I just finished constructing a 4 x 12 sealed cabinet using four of these Wizards. The sound is very detailed and smooth. The detail that comes through on such classics as Stairway to Heaven is very impressive! Very good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should you buy this? Yes.Used in single 12 50W 4x 6V6 open back amp. It's unbelievably loud, holds together very well and the little saturation distortion it has is very similar to a big magnet Celestion. An excellent speaker with a silly name.
