Speakers & Components
Speakers. The last opportunity to modify your tone. Unlike hi-fi speakers which attempt to create sounds that are true to the musical source fed them, guitar speakers impart their own tone. Your amp/cabinet pretty much determines three things about what speaker to select; speaker size, impedance and power rating. (See our tech corner article on Speaker Impedance, Power Handling and Wiring). But the tone is up to you! Speaker replacement is probably the easiest mod you can perform.
JensenJensen Loudspeakers have a long history. Founded in 1927 by Peter Jensen, one of the co-inventors of the loudspeaker, Jensen began producing commercial amplifier loudspeakers in the 1940s.
Jensen Digital (D-Series)At last, full range speakers designed and built for guitar tone. The Jensen D-Series is an innovative speaker line developed for the new generation of digital modeling, profiling and IR-based guitar systems. The D-Series speakers are also excellent in acoustic guitar amplifiers. These speakers retain the core elements of the traditional guitar speakers with lightweight cellulose cone membranes and integrated paper surrounds. Additionally, they feature an innovative horn-like loading in front of the voice coil developed to produce a frequency response that extends well beyond a basic guitar speaker. This ensures a clear, transparent rendition of the reverbs, delays, and all other time-based effects, as well as the rich harmonic content of a high-gain lead sound.
Speaker - Jensen® D-Series, 12", N12D, 150W
The N12D is able to return the feel, the warmth and the character of a classic guitar amplifier, but also the treble content and the complex harmonics of the overdrive, modulation, delay and reverb effects, as well as the crisp, natural tone of an amplified acoustic guitar. The Neodymium magnet design allows a weight reduction to only 2.4kgs.
Speaker - Jensen® D-Series, 12", C12D, 150W
The C12D is able to return the powerful, organic, warm tone and character of a classic guitar amplifier, but also the treble content and the complex harmonics of the overdrive, modulation, delay and reverb effects, as well as the crisp, natural tone of an amplified acoustic guitar.
