I had old cheap broken Japanese solid state amp that seemed like it would make a nice enclosure for 10 inch speaker. Normally I use 2x12 cab with Vintage 30's with my tube amp head, but I liked the idea of a smaller and more importantly lighter cab to bring on smaller gigs. So I've stripped the electronics and old speaker from the amp, and started to look for a 10 inch guitar speaker that needed to comply with two main requirements: not to be very expensive and also it had to be short enough to fit in a shallow space - less than 110mm - so for example I could not fit alnico vintage-type speakers because they tend have more depth than that. After a longer online research I made a short list of few speakers that seemed to fit my need, but I had no idea which one would be the best one for me, so I ordered Eminence Legend 10516 on a whim, and did not regret it. The sound of speakers is very hard to describe - and I am not one of those people that claims that they can hear a bat fart from 100 meters - but there is something extremely nice in a sound of this speaker, so much that I use it at home even though I have 2x12 cab under it. It sounds warm, clear, it fits my amp and playing style, smaller cab is easy to carry and I am very happy with this purchase.
...And you may ask "why such a title for this review??" Well, let me start saying that I was never very fond of mainstream products because 90% of it is just a product of marketing and doesn't really holds it's "success" because of other qualities.... And so, i was looking for a nice 10" speaker and found this Eminence Legend for a very nice price - compared to other "mainstream" brand. Searched for info and reviews, they all agree that is a very nice quality speaker, so I just bought it. And I am glad I did, because this little one sounds HUGE! I mean, i compared it side by side with other very-well-known speaker brand and I must say is sounds different, but for better, more presence but no shrilling mids/highs, nice rounded bottom end. Maybe is the cab I was using, but with a price thats just a fraction of the same comparable "mainstream" speaker, this is a no-brainer for me. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
