Celestion Announces DIY Cabinet Design for the F12-X200 Guitar Loudspeaker




Celestion, the premier manufacturer of guitar and bass loudspeakers and professional audio drivers for sound reinforcement applications, is offering users a DIY custom cabinet design made specifically for the F12-X200 loudspeaker. The F12-X200 combines Celestion’s expertise in guitar speakers and pro audio speakers into one transducer that has the benefits of both. It is the first speaker designed especially for use with profiling amps, modeling software, impulse responses, and all technology for emulating coveted guitar amps and speaker cabinets, and delivers full range frequency response combined with the live feel of a guitar speaker.

The F12-X200 is a coaxial speaker that delivers a frequency response from 60Hz all the way up to 20kHz. The higher frequency part of the signal is reproduced using a Celestion compression driver that has been integrated using a high-quality crossover circuit, enabling the F12-X200 to reproduce the full spectrum of audible frequencies, for the most accurate output possible, whatever the playing environment or set-up.

Designed to produce a neutral output, the lighter moving mass and straighter sided cone—of a type commonly used with guitar speakers—still gives the F12- X200 the feel and live response of a traditional guitar speaker. The physicality and tactile response of the speaker is live, as it would be playing through a traditional guitar amp.



The F12-X200 works like any guitar speaker upgrade; it’s designed to be “plug and play” so that users can drop it into any regular open or closed back guitar speaker cabinet and be ready to go. Together with amp and profiling hardware a player will get all the tone that they have programmed with little or no additional coloration that would come from a traditional guitar speaker.

Celestion is also offering a custom cabinet design. Specifying 18mm birch plywood for optimum sound quality and ruggedness the DIY cabinet is also vented to further extend the bass, extracting maximum performance from the speaker’s full range capability.

While it wouldn’t generally be recommended to use a traditional guitar speaker with a vented cabinet which could risk low frequency over-excursion and damage to the speaker’s cone, the F12-X200’s pro audio parentage means there’s no risk of over-excursion at the lowest end of the frequency range.
