Last month I picked up an unloaded '67 Fender Bandmaster 2x12 cabinet and since it is such a huge cabinet I thought it could work well for bass with the use of a Fender Bassman head.
My next task was finding speakers that would work well with this box. There is a wussy little port in the front of this cab as well as I dampened the interior of the cab with some thick insulation and pieces of an egg crate foam mattress pad.
Long story short, the specs of a the Eminence Beta 12As seemed perfect for this box.
I wanted to purchase from American Musical Supply since their shipping warehouse is close to me. They have a few Eminence drivers to choose from and I was able to price match the Beta 12As down for $60 a piece.
They fit like a glove and lined right up with the holes of the rear mounted Fender cab. The tone is excellent. Thanks to these speakers the cabinet produces the perfect mix of thunder and punch.
There was no mounting hardware included. Granted Eminence has no idea what you are mounting your speaker to, I don't blame them for not sending hardware that potentially wouldn't work anyway.
Solid. The magnets have some weight to them and the paper cone is thick. I don't buy into these thin puny Neo speakers if you want thunderous tone!
The speakers showed up flawless no weird marks.
God Bless Eminence for making a high quality, affordable replacement speaker that's made in the USA!
