You live in Toronto, go to Songbird!

Online, check LAMusic.ca, AxeMusic.com and of course eBay (if the member is in Canada... otherwise you'll get brokerage fees and all those other ones).

I've bought all of mine on either eBay or at L&M. You can get some good deals on eBay as long as the seller is in....:smilie_flagge17:

I love webers (great speakers, fair prices, ships with DHL so no huge border surprises), but i've had good experience with ordering in at L&M for Eminence speakers.

For any Eminence speakers, I have found Q-components great to deal with: http://loudspeakers.ca/

Unfortunately I mainly use Weber speakers and right now there is no way to get those without ordering from Weber. There are some Weber dealers in the States, but I don't know of any in Canada.

yeah, I'm a little sketchy about those speakers, find it hard to believe they can use decent components for that price

thx though!

Hi,

hey, after getting burned by border fees etc buying from the US....
I just bought from Weber directly and wasn't dinged any fees (asked Ted to send USPS rather than courier). Happy day! :)

I've read forum posts of users that have them and heard sound clips and they do exactly what they say. IMO, they're worth a try.

I have one of the V30 clones in my 2x12 with a Hellatone 30 in it, and it's performed wonderfully. Very well made. Grab a couple while they're that price IMO.



p.s. Steamco stuff is also very good prices as well.

The warehouse guitar speakers are great I have tried both the cl 80 and v30 in my ycv40wr and they sound great and not even broke in yet. I ordered 2 of each and it came to 196.00 canadian to my door and he was fast to ship them out.

I ordered 2 of each, going to mount in a X pattern in the cab

the 75 Hz lead cones, 65 watts

the 55Hz bass cones, 65 watts


the 75Hz I believe are copies of the greenback, the 55Hz not sure if they're the G12H30 or greenback w/bass cone


ps the new celestion G12H30 actually has a LEAD cone in it...so it is not a true copy of the original G12H30. it is still a great sounding speaker though, I think....maybe even better than the 55Hz original
