Eminence Cannabis Rex
In search of..... a Great speaker... providing superb balance, smooth response, and most importantly.... those elusive, non-screechy trebles.
Enter the Cannabis Rex from Eminence.Yayyyy! 8 ohms.. but offered in 16 as well.

Using a pair of these in 1-12", closed back,ported birch cabinets with a Voodoo Labs Preamp...Carvin T100 poweramp (SED Winged "C" tubes), Digitech GSP2101 for effects only. Les Pauls, Strat's,Tele's, Yamaha's,Ibanez..I throw a Keeley TS9 and a BBE Boosta Grande in front of the Strat. Sometimes in front of the humbucker equipped guitars when I really want loads of gain. These really do sound great with everything.

After years of the limitations using Celestion's products, I have found a speaker with an e.q. curve that eliminates piercing highs... while maintaining clarity and detail. Yum. I'm impressed. I had basically resigned myself to being stuck with icepick highs, scooped mids and flubby bass. Some of the speakers in my former arsenal were V30's,G12-T75's,G12M70's, even Greenbacks. I found something in the treble registers of all these speakers that could not be dialed out to my liking. Screechy highs. Even changing saddles to string savers in my Strat and Les Paul...changing my stop tailpiece to aluminum.. STILL had too many highs. Something indefinable. Not really measurable on an e.q. curve...but an unpleasant artifact I could not get rid of. The Cannabis Rex is different. Soft midrange.. nice smooth bass response and sweet treble response. Tones you hear on classic rock albums available here. And I'm talking Van Halen 1. With a STRAT.
I find this speaker to be adequate in ALL applications, although Eminence lists it as a "Country, Rock, Jazz and Classical" speaker. Even though that description covers a lot of ground, Funk,Metal,Blues and Fusion should not be left out of this mix. It can do it all.

Using it for about 6 months now. So..the honeymoon is still sorta on..but I feel objective about it. Given that I am a musician...and am always searching for my "ultimate" tone....I give a solid "9"...and really...These will NOT produce the brutality or scooped tone of a Vintage 30 on their own...BUT using your e.q. controls..you can easily dial in an even more versatile scooped tone. Still scooped..but with more presence and girth. The basic sound is so much more versatile..you are not limited to an e.q. characteristic that you cannot get away from. With any Celestion product..I have always fought with the tone. Now I just tweak my sound according to the room..and find those sweet highs that save my teeth from grinding.
A tremendous value at the price. $70.00 as opposed to Celestion V30's or Greenbacks at $110.00.. with twice the versatility (in my opinion).
Of course.. I will keep searching... (yes, it IS a curse ) But these are the best I have heard so far!

60'sforever's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A transformer"

Eminence Cannabis Rex
Installed in my Fender Hot Rod III in place of the original Celestion: it is much better, the bass is more defined and supported and not drool on medium and treble lost that garish side, suddenly you can climb towers and go to the friendliest crunch. The drive channel of the Hot Rod finally becoming musical and usable. The dynamics are better, the Eminence responds much better.

In conclusion: this HP + change lamps for 6V6 and blues kit from eurotubes makes it usable and enjoyable Hot Rod

Highly recommended +++

bert'nortt''s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" sound remarkable U.S. made for it!"

Eminence Cannabis Rex
Excellent! Already installed on a "Fender / blues / Junior" very good speaker always made in the USA!
Held that these Combo's offer several versions at HP, belonging to the series "patriot" account, I specifically chose not to get away from a U.S. sound (Fender would have it). As done for 6L6 in the tough 40/50 W ', 6V6 at around 18-25 W' El 84 even 12 or 15 w.
"Clean" well removed without being "shrill", recommended for solo, I just found his home on the other situations as well balanced doubled a vital link in the clear.
Thank you for this sound "med in" state ", versatile as hell though and super comfortable responding to requests Bass' middl 'and treble' (including tame these fucking low, often" c ***** e "to master).
Without neglecting a Crunchy range 'which however remain "North American colored. He also knows that show aggressive and get some fangs', but do not be offended, it goes without saying that it will decline all invitations to gluttony rabid metalheads"
Indeed, knowing what you want with her little waste and a nice progression on the combination volume / Masters. It s the perfect reverb on 'and more, versatile and therefore more complete than the HP Fender' late 50 early 60 'rock genre "surfing" Californian blues to these mythical years without any complex.
Free to you, but needless to "whine" with him if you hope the "British / supported" Now turn to you rather remarkable "eminences of the Red Series / coat." While it is true that bear well better some additives pedals, we will more easily to clean more muffled sounds, genres muffled with cotton wool ", than the reverse.

Eminence Cannabis Rex
I greatly appreciate the Eminence and this brand has never disappointed me. I have other hand, a Governor and Man O War that I find very good.
The Cannabis Rex is the first and so far the only-Eminence Patriot I bought (the other two are part of the series "Redcoat") series.
As always with Eminence, the yield is the appointment: 101.8 db. Manufacturing is still done in the U.S., proof that it is still possible to produce in the West at a reasonable cost and properly paying employees. The other major brand HP Celestion actually produce almost everything in China, but continues to apply the same prices at the time of the "made in UK", which makes you wonder about the margin identified and respect to the customer ...
The Canabis Rex gives his set, air and very articulate in words; saturated, it offers a perfect homogeneity of the agreements without pumping effect (or vibrato if you prefer let it ring when the agreement), we feel that the membrane is perfectly drivée, a beautiful articulation of sentences solo and, again, a density which improves the intelligibility score. Many bodies also loose but firm bass. HP seems to me that suit all styles, it sounds in all circumstances. His character is a rather transparent asset when using effects pedals; it does not add and that's fine. We can count on him to respect the instrument but also the character of the amp which they are associated. I think it is fantastic in addition to the original HP on a Hot Rod Deluxe or Supersonic 60, two Fender tube combos. Duet with a Marshall Class 5 head, it is perfect and restores air, low volume, high spectrum.
I mounted it in a cab HP Palmer, the quality / price ratio staggering. All sounds really good.
