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.
Neodymium SeriesJust before the turn of this century, speaker manufacturers started seriously evaluating the potential benefits of using neodymium magnets in loudspeakers. Although neodymium magnets were expensive, they allowed loudspeaker motors to be as little as half the weight of comparable ceramic magnet motors. Prices of neodymium started coming down and interest in lighter weight speakers grew, as did neodymium speaker options. Eminence has become one of the industry leaders in neodymium loudspeaker design. The Eminence LA, Deltalite and Kappalite models represent very lightweight, high performance loudspeakers without compromises in power handling, performance or reliability.
