The Invader 50 is the sweeter and creamier version of our hugely popular Green Beret. It retains all the same great rock and roll character with just a little sweeter top end and break up. The beefed-up coil means you can now use it with higher wattage amps.
Great improvement over the Celestine V type speaker.
WGS Invader 50
Where to start..I would say the WGS website description is very accurate. This speaker is creamy, which I love. It sounds very vintage British. My main amp is an Ampeg r12r from the mid 90s. I've had a Jensen c12k in it for 3ish years. It sounded really good but not great. Like most American amps it lacks mids. I tried a Celestion v30 and a Cream back. Ultimately the Jensen won out over both. A friend suggested WGS. He swears by them and now I see why. After putting in the Invader (same settings) the amp reminded me of vintage Vox(ish). Lots of mids, great bite to it. What really surprised me is how articulate this speaker is! Mind you the speaker wasn't broken in yet. Very impressive... I play in my basement and this speaker sounds great at lowish and even whisper volume. Beats both Celestions all to hell!
After listening to dozens of tests on YouTube (with headphones). I decided to try the Invader 50.
The Invader has a smooth mid sound with a very slight amount of grit. (Great for classic rock without the heavy buzz). What surprised me though was the clean sound! Wide, smooth sound! (Smoked the other 2 types of greenbacks I currently owned).
Customer service was top notch! Looking forward to my next purchase!
Review of David Schieferstein on 12" Invader 50 - 50 watts
I replaced an "okay sounding" MIC Celestion G12-80P with the WGS Invader. WOW! Huge improvement!
This was my second WGS speaker, and it will not be my last.
My only problem is deciding what speaker(s) I want to try next.
Review of Scotty V on 12" Invader 50 - 50 watts
I’ve been buying speakers from WGS for some time now and they never disappoint!
I put this Invader 50 in my VHT 1x12 combo and it seriously ROCKS!!
It sounds so good straight out of the box, so that means when it breaks in it will sound even better!
Very pleased with this speaker !
Thanks again WGS crew!!
