Default Eminence?

I'm interested in the performance of the Eminence speakers. I have never used them so I want your opinions.
Thanks!

For home or professional use?

I have used a couple of their 12'' woofers (mostly for home use) and for the money they are pretty good IMO. They don't have the low distortion and colorless sound like JBL's though but then they are in a different price range. Take a look at http://www.pispeakers.com and the Pi forum for lots of designs with Eminence drivers.

Eminence is primarily aimed at the pro-sound/high efficiency market. Be very sure that you model out any Eminence drivers for home use to see if it's compatable.

They also make OEM for a number of other vendors, such as Dayton (the Parts Express house brand) which tend to have specs more amenable for home useage.

Their quailty is at least equivalent to others in the same price range.

Default Beta 12LT

The Beta 12LT is a good fullrange driver if it is used properly.
There are other Eminence drivers that are very good for subwoofers, however my favorite is the Beta 12LT

Tack Magnus and thanks Bill and Miket. Of course I should have mentioned that I am looking for LF speakers for PA purpose, 2 x 15 or maybe 3 x 15.

For PA Eminence is a good driver for the money. Just model them out to find the one that best suits your needs.

The Magnum series sounds great and has specs that work pretty well for home speakers. Of course like most pro speakers, they don't reproduce flat into subwoofer territory, they are also about the most expensive Eminences, but still cheaper than most other choices if you order them from places like Parts Express.

They have all the bells and whistles- shorting rings, phase plug, etc.

If considering Eminence you might also want to take a look at the stuff from P. Audio, http://www.paudio-europe.com/

Pretty good bang for the buck and available in Sweden as well.
