Based upon some information obtained within the harp community, I put this baby into a VHT Special 6, also tube modified. The end result was a rip snortin' little harp amp for about $300.00. I expect that putting one of these speakers into any harp amp needing a new speaker would result in some killer tone .
7/23/13 - edit - Amazon seems to have moved three Lil Buddy reviews, including this one, to the Eminence Legend. I'm sure the Legend is a fine speaker but I have no experience with it. This review is for the Eminence Lil Buddy.
I put this in a Fender Champion 110 (25 watt, solid state) amp.
Long story short: huge difference. The sound is exactly as advertised: smooth and full. It's louder than the old speaker, but the highs are not piercing at all. It's much less fatiguing to listen to, and almost invites you to try to listen carefully. The clean channel sounds great, and the drive channel, which I never much cared for, now sounds a lot better too.
The speaker is well-built, was packaged nicely, and was easy to install despite the magnet part being a little bigger than the old one. It feels like it weighs twice as much. I had to turn it about 45 degrees counterclockwise because the amp's wires were otherwise too short to reach it. No difference except you have to turn your head to read the label.
i address this review to those who CAN hear small differences, and who Dare to try different things...
today, we took the epiphone Dot studio geetar, with the tiny vox ac4tv mini Tubes amp...to test out around 15 different eminence speakers !
the above is based on the sweet, bloom sound of EL 84 tube... and that is what we aimed to get... a bit MORE than the internal 6 inch speaker, which is, actually, quite nice on its own too !
but on the Backside, i saw a speaker connection for 16 ohms... mmmm
I chose the Governor, AND the Lil Buddy. yes, a red and a blue...! we are gonna make 2 separate boxes, and allow series connection so they add up to 16 ohms... OR, be played individually at 8 ohms..
there is Quite a difference between the above 2 spkrs in sound, however, surprisingly, when Connected Together in series and played back with the above equipment IN CLEAN MODE, the sounds are simply AMAZINGLY accurate and Dream like ! can put one in a trance !
so, GO ahead, and try out various eminence and other spkrs combinations too ... u will be surprised !
the next bests, which i liked for the slow slow jazzy type , are :
private jack tonespotter
so, ,there you have it one man's test results in a compressed form !
