Your whole post sorta begs the question; and the answer is noted above... the Gov isn't the speaker for your application.
Try another speaker. Chalk it up to experience, Ebay it and then look for another speaker to fit your needs better.
It is just a part of the journey.
BUT, Eminence shouldn't hint and allude to the fact that this is like a Vintage 30 when it sounds nothing like it and is all gritty and fuzzy instead.
Same with the Legend V12.
They shouldn't market a speaker as being like the Vintage30 when it is not because people who have V30s will buy it and be very disappointed to find out it is a very bad imitation that is not even remotely similar to the V30.
That's my feeling on this whole thing.
They could have said it was like the V30 with low/medium gain amps, but that it becomes very compressed and gritty if you use something like JCM800.
That would have been a good accurate descirption that would have prevented me from wasting my moeny.
You say the Governor is not the right speaker for my application.
I couldn't agree with you more!!!
