*Coloration, Tone, and the appropriateness of a speaker for a specific genre of music are very subjective subjects. Eminence has dedicated countless hours to the tonal evaluation of each speaker in these two series. Additional listening tests were also conducted by Greg Martin, lead guitarist for the Kentucky Headhunters and Steve Wilson of Ambient Sound, both recognized in the music industry
as experts on the subject of guitar tone. This data is provided to be used as a general guideline to aid in guitar speaker selection, however the suitability of a specific speaker for a specific purpose is a matter of personal taste and can only be determined by you the user. Eminence makes no guarantees regarding the suitability of any speaker in these series for any specific application.
