Product Description

Designed for high power PA/monitor speaker applications, the Eminence Delta 12A PA Speaker speakers feature a heavy 56oz. magnet and is rated at 400 watts. This speaker provides a frequency response of 54Hz to 5kHz and an impedance of 8 ohms. Ideal for sound reinforcement systems. Also suitable for lead and bass guitar, keyboards, guitar combos, club music systems and stage monitors.

The Value of Eminence Eminence wants to make sure their customers know exactly what they are getting when they buy a speaker. Therefore, Eminence provides two different ratings to describe the power handling of all their speakers.

Watts - the guaranteed long term power rating throughout the useable frequency range of the speaker.

Translation: the speaker will operate continuously at any frequency within the speakers’ specified frequency range when driven at this power. The Watts rating is similar to RMS, but is really more indicative of long term thermal capability.

Music Program - the speaker will safely and reliably handle the varying frequencies of musical content at this power rating.

The Music Program rating is more indicative of what you can expect in the real world with the speaker operating within the appropriate enclosure reproducing music or vocal audio program.

Eminence is committed to quality and guarantees all of its speakers for 7 years. They build all of their speakers to greatly exceed customer performance expectations. Dollar for dollar against competitors, an Eminence speaker is well worth the money that you invest!

How a Speaker Works
The key working components of a loudspeaker are shown in the diagram below. When an electrical current passes through a wire coil (the voice coil) in a magnetic field, it produces a force which varies with the current applied. The cone, connected to the voice coil, moves in and out, creating waves of high and low air pressure.

The coil and magnet assembly are the 'motor structure' of the loudspeaker. The movement is controlled by the loudspeaker's suspension which comprises the cone surround and the spider. The surround and spider allow the coil to move freely along the axis of the magnet's core (or pole) without touching the sides of the magnetic gap.

Eminence technology and proprietary materials mean that age-old 'compromises' of durability against sensitivity, or power handling against precision of response, are more easily solved than you might imagine.


Heatsinks: In the quest for higher power density (more power and hence more sound from less space), Eminence has progressively introduced heatsink components to selected transducers e.g. cast frame neodymium products and Kilomax. The heatsinks pass through the pole of the transducer or are incorporated into the chassis of the loudspeaker to transfer heat away from the coil. The air currents caused by the cone movement cool the heatsink.

A great electric guitar amp speaker!
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought one of these off of Craigslist and put it in a cheap amp, which it really brought to life. I've since put them in several of my guitar amps and love them. Though technically PA speakers, they are clear, loud and punchy with tremendous bass response, if you want it. The speaker does not break up and lends very little coloring to your sound. What you put in, you get out. Rated at 400 watts, they can take a beating. The best $80 guitar speaker I've found. Sounds great with distortion, also. If you can think outside the box, this may be what you're looking for (and 1/3 the price of an EV);)

Great modeling amp speaker
Your general opinion of this product.
I play a Fender Cyber Twin SE and use cast Delta Pro 12A's in 1x12 extension cabinets because they do not color the tone. The Delta Pro diameter will not fit inside the amp but Eminence stated the Delta 12A spec'd the same but was a smaller diameter. Problem solved and with a 400 watt rating/7 year wty--not worried!
