    Exactly that model number. There are similarly named Celestion speakers; the one I'm curious about is the one that looks like this. Anybody have experience with these, good, bad, or otherwise?

    I had already seen that; most of it was "they suck" based on apparent hearsay; the few who actually tried them seemed to like them. BUT, there is also confusion due to the name which is similar to a certain greenback.

    I'm thinking of using one in an extension cab for my Vox AC10C1.

    I've done a ton of researching online, and these speakers seem to be a bit of a mystery. Other people have asked about them also, but nobody seems to know anything. People who see pictures of them think they must suck. But the few who have actually used them said they sound great. But regarding specs, origin, history, etc, nobody has a clue.

    A buddy of mine got one for and didn’t care for it in his PR that had the baffle replaced for 12”. He said it sounded thin with both Buckers and Single Coils.

    I personally have no experience with the speaker
