You will find this speaker to be very touch-sensitive with a hint of British flavor. The American guitar speaker that’s packin’ a little heat, Texas style.

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!


About Eminence
In 1966, Bob Gault founded what was to become the world's largest loudspeaker manufacturing company after working as an engineer for Magnavox and CTS (Chicago Telephone Supply). Ironically, Gault started Eminence hoping to maintain three 18" speakers per day, based on a commitment from Ampeg's Everett Hull. Under the leadership of Gault and most recently his son, Rob, the company's capacity has grown to over 10,000 speakers per day, employing nearly 200 people.

Gault was the president of Eminence from the company's inception until 1992. He officially retired in 1993, but continued to make valuable contributions to the company. Gault passed away on Octoboer 4, 2002. he was a husband, father, and grandfather. Gault was also an avid golfer. He is greatly missed by his family, the music industry, and the Eminence community.

Eminence, Kentucky (population 3000) is centrally located in the heart of Kentucky, between Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio. Bob Gault chose this location as it was ideally situated for shipping products all over the USA. The Eminence and Henry County community could also provide the labor needed to manufacture products on a large scale. After forty years, Eminence, Kentucky continues to provide ideal conditions for the manufacturing and distribution of the World's #1 Loudspeakers.

The Eminence Factory
The first Eminence facility, located in downtown Eminence, employed around thirty people. The building was less than 6,000 sq. ft. and production was often less in one week than it is in one hour at our present facility. In 1972 Eminence Speaker moved to a new location in Shawnee Industrial Park on Mulberry Pike where we remain today. The facility has seen several additions. The first building in this location was just less than 30,000 sq. ft., but now has grown to include nearly 100,000 sq. ft. all under one roof.


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.

Perfect Speaker
What is your opinion of this product?
2nd time i’ve put one of these in a Fender amp - first one in a hot rod deluxe and this one in a supersonic 60 - the Texas Heat just brings them to life - perfect combination of warmth and response - can’t say enough about how much I love the tone!

Noticeable difference
Your general opinion of this product.
Like it. Has a fuller sound than stock speaker. Noticeably louder & clearer with grit when played loud. And man is it loud, sitting in my Blues jr With a few Billm mods. Played with guitars that have single coil, humbuckers and P-90's.
Only had it a few weeks
Loads of tone. Bass is tight, mids defined, highs clear unless you push em then they scream.
Only had it a few weeks.

Makes a nice 2x12 extension cab
Your general opinion of this product.
I built a cabinet and paired this with a Swamp Thang for my Vibro Champ XD. Wow, my friend with a vintage super reverb told me, those sound really great. I play an Ovation acoustic electric trough it and it sounds great. Selling the acoustic amp. The 5 watts drive these nicely and it gets way loud.
They seem to be very well made. They mounted nicely and wiring was easy.
Nice tonal range.
Only had them a couple of weeks great so far.

Tried a lot of speakers.
Excellent, made in the USA, never seen or heard a defective Eminence unit.
It's a speaker, it handles 150w.
Your general opinion of this product.
Best speaker for high gain metal, period. Smooths out any nasty grit from those chinese tube heads, kills the ice pick and most of the fizz too.
Mid range punch, no ice pick, low on the fizz meter. May seem a bit dark until you learn how to EQ them. Best when pushed hard with massive wattage, but very usable at low volume as well. Clipping from a 6505+ just rips through everything.
Very nice paint or powder coat, solid in all regards.

NIGHT AND DAY DIFFERENCE!
These are VERY well made in every respect. The paint is flawless, the labels look cool, and they come in a nice box. No complaints.
I've had mine for about 7 years and they have been very reliable. I've played with this amp with the Texas Heats in it outside, inside, and even in the rain. For about four of the seven years I had to transport the amp quite a bit and the speakers have stood up to all that moving and difference in environment with no problems at all.
Your general opinion of this product.
These Texas Heats are AMAZING! I bought two of them about 7 years ago to replace the stock speakers in my Fender FM212. I was looking for a warmer, fuller-range sound, and these were just what I was looking for. I'm now thinking of buying a few more for my 2x12 cabinet and my 4x12 cabinet as well. LOVE 'EM!!
Very responsive and clear. No issues, and they're tuned for human ears unlike some other speakers I've heard that sound like an ice pick in your eardrums!
Not really annoyingly bright (like the stock speakers they replaced) and not muddy. Just warm and clear perfect sound. I always thought the Vintage 30's sounded very dark and muddy. Celestion Rocket 50's, though considered lesser speakers than the V30s sounded better IMO, but Texas Heats sound WAY better than either of those. You can really crank them too and they sound great at all volume levels.
Perfect paint on the frames and cool logos that draw your attention to them. Holes in the frame matched the stock holes of the Fender Special Design perfectly. Had them in and working in 10 minutes. They were also packed in a nice box with molded foam all around them and arrived in perfect condition.
The Texas Heats pick up every note and nuance of crystal clear tones of single coil Strat all the way up to heavily distorted double humbuckers with no problems at all. You really don't even have to fuss with the EQ a lot either. They are very forgiving.
