How to get Eminence speaker specs?

#1 Post by T_Gowan » Fri Nov 06, 2020 9:14 am

Hi
I have an Avitar 4x10 cabinet with Eminence Lite speakers but no name applied, just the eminence logo. Is there a tag or number printed on the cone perhaps that could be used to identify the TS specs. I want to repurpose the speakers as I never use the cabinet anymore.

Thanks in advance.

Look for a paper sticker on the outside of the magnet. That's typically where there is a model number. It's not the one you see on the Eminence website but they can cross reference the OEM number to a retail model.

6 - T39 4-25" 2-22" 3012LF
4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005
1 - T24
2 - XF210

If it's an OEM driver chances are you can't get the specs, those being proprietary to the OEM customer.

If I cant get the specs is there any way of "guessing" what BF cab it might perform well in. Using the existing box volume, porting etc.

If they're Eminence tens they're not going to be so far off that they can't be used in any of the ten loaded cabs other than subs. But they may be 4 or 16 ohm, you'd have to measure the DCR to be sure. DCR is about 0.7 times the impedance.

Well just got my set of BF plans, the Jack10 Lite looks intriguing. First plan is for expandable bass rig but will no doubt us it full range at some point so full tweeter array will be used. As I have 4 10s I'm planning on 4 cabs. will it be advisable to do the lower melded and the upper straight array?
This is all in the future as there are no gigs on the calendar and I have a major kitchen-dinning room reno on the go( 4 year plan ) don't tell my wife that.

You'd do melded lower and straight upper in a PA rig.

Are you going to build a "tower of power" rig?

I can see using 2 for my portable bass rig, been using an SWR 210. But I have an Avitar 410 that I never use with Eminence lites. So thought I would just repurpose the 10s. You know I have to build something and its been so long.lol
