Awesome Speaker!!

Seegs2, 04.07.2014
One of the 3 new speakers released by Celestion, the A Type is supposed to be a high headroom American voiced speaker. I really don't hear that. I bought it to replace a Celestion Gold to give my Morgan RG15 more headroom and volume for gigs. The Morgan is similar to a Vox AC15.

It does have more headroom but that is mostly because the bass is very tight and punchy, unlike the Gold where the bass end breaks up. The A Type also does not have the British chime or top end sparkle of the Gold but it has a nice and round and warm top end that is still clear. This speaker sounds great clean and also over drives very creamy smooth.

The most surprising thing is that it sounds better with a Vox style amp than it does with my 64 Blackface Bassman. In the Bassman I love 10" Golds and use 3 of them.

Warm sound - but ....

Armand, 13.01.2015
I ordered two speakers for my two LANEY Ironheart 30-112 Combo's: the Celestion V-Type (English Style) and the A-Type (American Style) - the V30 was not a question because of the familiar disgusting middle nose ...

This is the reason why the HH custom speakers are surprisingly good, but the highs are so exaggerated that I had the Treble-Cut almost at position 9 o'clock - who knows the VOX AC-30 CUT controller knows what I'm talking about !

So I first built the A-Type Speaker and played it on three gigs ...
The speaker has a lot of air and pressure, very tight basses and a good detail drawing! This I felt as a VERY POSITIVE!
The warmth that this speaker brings into the sound is almost an impertinence! No harsh upper rims - no - a wonderfully rounded sound picture - except for the high gain "lead board" - he really liked me!
What also hit me negatively at the rocking gig was that at higher volume the bass center of the speaker prevails, ie you must inevitably turn up the heights!

Conclusion of the A-type test: Fat clean and Chrunch sound of the finest !! High-Gain has ned really convinced me - since he comes then pretty middle and hard therefore! So rather a very good speaker for country, blues and jazz !!!!

Then I installed the V-Type (luckily I ordered both!) And the sun went up !!!! Absolutely horny, very detailed, creamy-singing sound !! Also in the high-gain range a bliss! So you can now imagine for yourself which speakers in my two LANEY IRONHEART 112-30 combo's will do their service in the future! As shown in Fig.

In principle, this can be broken down as follows:

A-Type - very good for Country, Blues & Jazz!
V-Type - very good for rock, hardrock & heavy, but also for country, blues etc.
The V-Type is, in my opinion, certainly THE BETTER CHOICE - either way! A much more courageous and versatile speaker and this without the familiar, disgusting middle nose of the V30er! As shown in Fig.

I hope I could help you with the purchase decision ...? As shown in Fig.
