What can you tell me about this speaker ?
Super punchy and articulate. Good tonal balance top to bottom without a lot of coloration. Efficient and ridiculously light. Can make a small combo sound bigger.
It's my favorite speaker, mainly because it's so lightweight but also because it sounds just as good, if not better than any ceramic Jensen type speaker. So why not go with a lighter one? It's very efficient so it's louder than many speakers.
Bluewail - exactly the descriptors I'm looking for. Always on the hunt for big sound in a small format.
Figaro - more great testimony & efficiency is icing.
ajeffcote - +1 it is.
Went ahead & ordered one. The only dilemma now is - open or closed back ?
For that speaker I'd go open back
I've always prefered open back cabinets because they spread the sound around the room.
Kinda partial to open back as well, so be it.
Hoping to use this speaker with a Quilter Tone Block at a bbq/jam in a couple weeks & look forward to the easy transport & setup.
Thanks again for all the input.
I can't comment directly on the "Lil Texas" neo speaker, but I have owned and still own both Jensen Neo 112 and Tornado 112 neos. I've found that at least w/ their Neodynium speakers they sound best in a closed back cab. I had them in a mesa Boogie Nomad wide body 1x12" combo and found that they lacked fullness. I ended up using them in an Egnater Rebel 1x12" cab w/ much better results. The WGS ET90 is my choice for open back cabs. It gets closest to an EV12L to my ears. Hope this is helpful!
I've use a Lil' Texas speaker in my open backed Kustom '36 Coupe, and in my closed back Vox, TB18C1. I tend to go for American sounding speakers, and the Lil' Texas was a big improvement in both amps.
Has anyone compared the Lil Texas to a Cannabis Rex? I have the C-Rex in my Allen Accomplice and it's nice, but I wouldn't mind a lighter speaker with similar bass and mids, and more high-end sparkle.
The LT has more sparkle than the CR, tighter bass and a little less mids.
The Lil Texas and Cannabis Rex are my favorite 12" speakers. Totally agree with the comparison of them above. I have a Lil Texas in my PRRI and it's mades it a gigging machine as it's louder and just as light/portable as stock.
