Eminence Lady Luck specifications

Recommended Posts

Greetings, everybody!

 

I'm new to the forum, tried the search but got no "luck" (geez, this word creepies me).

 

I recently bought a pair of 12" Eminence Lady Luck speakers, which loads some Epiphone amplifiers. Unfortunately, one of them got broke while shipping, and I'm looking for a recone right now.

 

This is the speaker:

But I need the speaker specifications in order to do it properly! I tried contacting Eminence, Epiphone and even a repair store in US, but no "luck" again.

 

Anybody knows its official specs?

 

Cheers,

João Cunha

Hello Friend,

Welcome!! Have you tried a search engine(Google)? You may find what you need. I haven't seen the Lady Luck speakers for sale individually but I think you best luck may just searching the internet. Do not know the specs.

Sure I did, but the information out there is pretty sparse. I couldn't get more than ohms, wattage, etc.

Did a quick search on Google and came across this on the Telecaster Forum (top of the searches in fact)

 

Thank you for your inquiry. Eminence and Epiphone engineers collaborated to

develop the Lady Luck speaker specifically for the new line of Epiphone

Amplifiers. The development and testing of this speaker has been in process for

about two years. The speaker is a 16 ohm model and is rated for 70 watts RMS.

Each speaker sports a custom Epiphone/Eminence finish in Mustard Yellow along

with the Lady Luck label on the back. The speaker has a stamped steel frame, a

front rear sealing gasket, a 34 oz magnet, 1.75" voice coil, a full paper cone

with paper edge, and a cloth dust cap. This speaker has a sensitivity of 99dB

and a useable frequency range from 80Hz-5kHz. It has a very smooth response

from the low-end through the mid range. It also has a very nice top end sparkle.

The speaker was engineered to exhibit very warm, and smooth break-up modes. The

tonality of the amp is such that very little tonal coloration from the speaker

was desired. Consequently, the speaker was engineered to provide a subtle, yet

effective compliment to the amplifier.

Thanks, wiggy, I already found these infos, but isn't it missing the mustard paper dimensions behind the cone? Also, it isn't official specs, so I got a little afraid.

I'd drop the guy a quick email to get the rest of the specs you're looking for.

The Lady Luck is actually a rather cheap speaker, pot-luck would be a better name. As fitted to the none too expensive BC30 (no expense spared for the speakers then). It is rated at 70 watts, anyone that then adds 'RMS' proves they don't know what they are talking about. I would not describe it as "engineered to exhibit very warm, and smooth break-up modes", more like harsh and shrill with no warmth whatsoever, I had to fit a pair of Greenbacks, at half the cost of the amp, to achieve warmth and smooth response. This turns a notoriously harsh Beastly-30 into a tone-monster.

 

I'm afraid your speaker is beyond economical repair (BER), like having a £200 re-fret done on a £80 guitar.
