Since their introduction over a decade ago, the Patriot and Redcoat models have featured grey and red powder coat painted chassis, as well as backplate labels with the American and British flag themes. Very distinguishable from both an appearance and a tonal perspective, these highly successful models followed in the footsteps of the Legend series and helped solidify Eminence’s position in the guitar and bass speaker market.
The models in these two series will now feature black electrocoat painted chassis, and along with the Legend series will feature redesigned backplate labels. “To the end user, it’s tone and price that matter most,” said Cobi Stein, Marketing and Artist Relations Manager at Eminence. “But to an OEM amplifier and/or cabinet builder, product cosmetics can rank just as high. The loudspeaker is one of the largest and most important components in their finished product, and our goal with these design updates is to offer a more refined style with a classic appearance that underscores each product’s classic tone.”
