12" Speaker with scooped mids?

I've owned a lot of British-voiced speakers, but am curious about sampling some speakers with a bit of a "scoop" in their high-mids.... Preferably without harsh upper treble response.

What speakers fit the bill?

I'm looking for something Alnico. I've had extensive experience with Weber Blue Dogs in 15 & 30 watt varieties, as well as a Weber P12Q (12A125A) on the American side of the tracks. Those would be helpful reference points, if possible. (Though I'm familiar with lots of other speakers if there's a more fitting comparison)

I'm running Teles with low output Mare PUs, and the amp that this speaker would go with has a pentode front end (EF86 & EF184 channels, parralel) hitting a cathode biased pair of 5881s ... GZ34 or 5R4 recto depending on my mood ;)

I'd probably pair this speaker with a Weber 15 watt Silver Bell Alnico ... Looking for a different voice to complement the strong midrange character of the Weber... Hoping maybe this new speaker could fill in some frequencies that the Weber doesn't already dominate.

Thanks!

Eminence Wizard sound pretty scooped.
:agree

This was my experience as well. The Wizard is a ceramic magnet speaker, FWIW. It's upper treble response isn't harsh, but it is pronounced. I have an amp that's a bit dark (Ampeg GVT15-112), and it's been the perfect speaker for it.

If you want accentuated lows as well as highs, the Scumback J75 might be worth considering, though, again, it's a ceramic magnet speaker.

I'm leaning toward a P12N type, and owned the Weber C12NT (12F150T now?) a long time ago which was a great speaker though not what I needed at the time.

Anyone have experience with the P12NT vs P12N? (12A150T vs 12A150) Thoughts?
