Blackhawk vs Blackhawk HP – High Power AlNiCo Guitar Speaker Shoot-out!

Holy cow has this one been coming for a LONG TIME!  Truth is, I haven’t had a Blackhawk HP available for a shootout until now.  I’m not gonna waste your time with a bunch of talk; we’ll get right to the shootout video asap.  I will say this, the tone of the HP surprised me a little, as it was a fair bit brighter than the regular Blackhawk, and I usually expect high-power speakers to be somewhat dull.  The HP had more prominent upper-midrange in the 2-3kHz range, whereas the regular Blackhawk had more dominant lower-midrange in the 200-400Hz range.  As far as apparent overall volume (sens.), they were dead-on with one another. It is important to point out, however, that the HP model was fresh out of the box, and the regular model had probably 20+ hours of play time … so the HP model may “warm-up” a little with break-in.  Okay, that’s it, here’s the video … please post your comments!

WOW, I didn't expect to prefer the HP on all the samples but...... It just popped in the recording to my ear and rang with greater clarity and authority! Hmmmmm? Anxious to find out what others thought of this demo!

The clean samples were close, at times favoring the standard Blackhawk, but each increase in overdrive favored the HP.
