Hey, I'm making DIY 2x12 cab, which Eminence/Celestion speaker would You recomend ?
I play a lot of classic instrumental rock like Pink Floyd and lot of (modern)/classic metal.
- Eminence Legend 125 8
- Eminence Legend GB 12 8
- Eminence Legend v12 8
- Eminence Legend 121 8
- Celestion Seventy 80
- Celestion G 12 T

I ll add, that i need quality, not power.
PS. don't say v30 or greenbacks - can't afford them.

what exact type of metal?

i'd discount the legend 1258 (it's a vintage fendery type of tone, not what you want) and celestion 70/80 (mediocre at best).

I haven't tried the 1218, I'm not entirely sure what it is.

i haven't tried the g12t 100 but i think it's meant to be quite nice- almost like a more modern-sounding greenback.

GB12 is eminence's version of a greenback. Good for classic rock, might not be the best choice for metal (depending on what you mean by metal).

v12 would work. It's sorta like a more laid-back vintage 30, i think. though if you're not crazy about v30s...

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

I'd almost tell you to try (if you can) a Rocket 50. I had them in my 2x12 randall cab back in the days. Sounded okay for the price.

I was thinking mostly of GB12, they would be perfect for Floyd's but about metal that's right im not sure too.
Well, metal classic thrash, heavy etc like 80/90s Metallica mostly.
So im affraid GB12 would be a little to "bright" for that ...

V30 are too much dark/"lazy" for me.

^ yeah. you might get away with a gb12 if you're not playing anything too modern. it's your call, though. or you could get one of each (a gb12 and v12, i mean).

i've never tried them, but they're meant to be terrible. i've heard people say they're even worse than a 70/80, and any of those eminences (assuming they suit the required tone) will annihiliate a 70/80, I think.

Wow.

Good job. You should be on the WTLT list if you aren't already. You'll need a member to nominate you for that.

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.
