Sorry Jon, been in vacation mode for about 3 weeks now...been back to work for two of them
So my opinion is as follows....The Telonics, first and foremost is a Eminence speaker...not that it means anymore than just that but figured I would mention it. This speaker also weighs next to nothing which is a big plus for a lot of folks around here Im sure..... I currently have a SSP 1x12 loaded with a 4 ohm unit. Im comparing it to three different K120s that I own...two of which are original cones, the third is a factory re-cone from the late 80s...
The Telonics does what it says it will do and does react very much like the K does when playing clean....its very bright, articulate, and shines and bounces just like a JBL voiced speaker should. I liked the clean tones I was getting right off the bat. That being said when I added some overdrive to the mix I wasn't as pleased....now to be completely fair, these speakers are designed for steel players and when I contacted to company I was told just that by the owner. I wouldn't say that the Telonics sounded bad with the overdrive but I will say that I enjoy my K120s overdriven sound much more. Another point to bring up in the pursuit of fairness is that Im not testing this speaker at gig volumes...just at home. I have not gigged with this unit yet and do not know how it will react at higher volumes when being pushed. It might be a totally different speaker at that point...probably will be in fact.
Sound clips to follow....(probably not too "shortly" though Jon
