    Dear All,
    As you probably know the above weighs in on a hefty amount. Does anyone know what the differential of the old fender special design (eminence?) are to lets say the Lil Texas Neo speakers. How many pounds in weight would i save? As we only get one back/spinal column in this life, im looking to get a speaker upgrade or change the amp completely....would a speaker change really be worth it in terms of weight?
    Thanks in advance :)

    A BFTR in which I installed early Eminence Neos to take the place of the OEM stamped frames went from 74lbs to 57lbs. This was maybe 7 years ago. The next time I saw the amp—-about a year later, it had some Celestion Neos in it. I asked him why he had taken the Emi Neos out. He said that they blew when he was on the road. I plugged the amp in...and whadahey....one of the Celestion Neos was out of commission.
