is there a Celestion (or other brand) speaker similar to the Budda Phat?

Just curious. I guess another way to put it would be to ask if the Phat speaker is more or less loosely based on a more familiar speaker. Anybody know?

Supposedly the specs on the Budda fat speaker are the exact same as an Eminence wizard speaker. I once asked Jeff Bober if they were the same speaker and he said no that he worked with Eminence to design a speaker that was based on the celestion V 30

There's a thread that shows the specs of a Wizard and a Phat 12 and they were the pretty much the same. I can't find that thread now.

I couldn't think of a speaker that sounds anything less like a V30 than the Phat does. Overly dark, low mid heavy, very little high end.

To my ears Eminence doesn't make any speakers that sound like the Celestion they are modeled after. Most are darker and missing the presence inherent to the Celestion voicing to my ears. Not a bad thing and I do love mixing the two.
