MESA/Boogie® Fillmore™ 75 Speakers
The Mesa/Boogie® Fillmore™ 75 speaker is the culmination of a nine-year effort that saw more than 500 custom prototypes from the world's leading speaker manufacturers. We drove 'em crazy with our fanatical demands! Finally, our old friends at Eminence Speaker in Kentucky (USA!) captured the magic of our Golden Reference speakers that date back to the peak of the hand-built British era.
Our new Fillmore FM-75 is a vintage voiced speaker providing slightly lower lows, more punch, and a more balanced, less-scooped mid-range. Best of all, the highs have a vocal quality with harmonics that don't "separate" from the fundamental tones, eliminating that thin mosquito buzz of today's offshore speakers in high-gain applications.
We're excited to present this first offering in the coming full range of Mesa® Fillmore speakers. We've stressed over this project for nearly a decade, realizing we needed to develop our own speakers to best compliment our amplifiers. And we're pleased and proud that, once again, Made In USA triumphs!
