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.

Ceramic - Vintage Ceramic speakers are designed to sound similar to the Alnicos, and were first developed in the 1960s as a cost effective alternative to the Alnicos. The advantage of the ceramic speaker is its ability to handle more power as well as a player's front end pedal accessories. Vintage Ceramic speakers are recommended for all types of music, and sound best at loud volumes.

P-A-C12NSpeaker - Jensen® Vintage Ceramic, 12", C12N, 50W

The C12N is one of the most important speakers in Jensen’s history.

Clear highs, solid mids, and powerful basses, it epitomizes the tone of that decade, from the surf, the rock n’ roll, the electric blues and the West Coast inspired music.
