Speakers & Components
Speakers. The last opportunity to modify your tone. Unlike hi-fi speakers which attempt to create sounds that are true to the musical source fed them, guitar speakers impart their own tone. Your amp/cabinet pretty much determines three things about what speaker to select; speaker size, impedance and power rating. (See our tech corner article on Speaker Impedance, Power Handling and Wiring). But the tone is up to you! Speaker replacement is probably the easiest mod you can perform.
SignatureEminence has teamed up with veteran pedal steeler Paul Franklin and blues guitarist Josh Smith to create two guitar speakers that are as versatile as the artists themselves.

Speaker - Eminence® Signature, 12", Double-T 12, 300W, 8Ω
The Travis Toy Signature Double-T 12 pedal steel guitar speaker features a tight low end, a midrange bite that can cut through a mix, and detailed high end without being too bright. Travis worked closely with the engineers at Eminence to achieve these characteristics and even managed to pack them all into a 12 inch speaker that weighs just over 7 lbs - less than half the weight of the speakers he replaced.
