That's what I thought too..........thanks. Guys in the US talk about their old and new pickups and degaussing/re-magnetising them etc, those magnets are a lot lot smaller in size of course and I've had a few of them over the years, old T-Tops and PAFs from the '50s and '60s with no apparent lessening of performance that I can ascertain. Got an old '54 Celestion 74 1772 that I've mentioned above and it's a brilliant speaker for a 65 year old.
Celestion (and many other companies) have been making a full range, coaxial dual driver for decades. This one is just marketed for guitar use. I suspect the performance will be pretty poor unless it's in a cabinet designed for FRFR use.
Interesting. And this guy's also amplifying his Kemper with a Fryette Power Station. I think it would be worth my trying a pair of these speakers even though I've CL80s on the way. Would mean I could leave the Kemper's Pure Cabinet feature on.
Bought a pair of Heritage 55 hz cone G12H 30's from Hotrox in the uk on Weds. Arrived in Aucks on Sunday. Pretty sharp but I'm guessing they'll take a couple of weeks to sort customs and make it down here.
Ordered two. Think it'll better suit the Kemper than the CL80s I have on the way. The idea behind the CL80s was that Michael Britt often uses them when making profiles. However, the more I use the Kemper the more I like the rigs with the speaker portion of the profile present. There's also a couple of features of the Kemper I can take advantage by using FRFR speakers. The 'Kemper Cone' feature will simulate one of sixteen popular speakers (including off-axis tone changes) and there's also the 'Pure Cabinet' feature which takes harshness of high-gain tones.
Can you tell I've been nerding-out with the manual?
Got around to putting the GA-SC64 into my Deluxe Reverb yesterday. Obviously there's a lot of hype surrounding this speaker, especially when put in a DR. I must say I was pretty impressed. Haven't had a chance to crank it up too much yet, but the cleans are certainly improved. It has definitely tamed a bit of that shrill high end. As someone who loves playing a bit of country the highs are now much more usable and musical. I haven't noticed much of a difference in the lows, maybe a bit tighter. I guess the speaker's only got a couple of hours or so playing time on it so far and things will change as it wears in. So far, so good.

For consideration if any one is buying...
out of possible interest in the Red Fang I googled it and this link came up to a discussion about how expensive eminence speakers were .... now if that $650 comment is right they seem bloody cheap now days
