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.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Alnico, 6", P6V, 20W
The P6V offers a tonal alternative to the C6V. Balanced and powerful for its size, its AlNiCo magnet assembly grants an extra-chimey character to the tone. This makes it a great choice for those applications where clean, detailed sounds on the edge of clipping are the key target for the player.
Speaker - Jensen® Jets, 12", Tornado Classic, 100W
The Tornado 100 is the first Jensen Jet speaker loaded with the 2nd Generation Neodymium magnet design that has since been extended to the Tornado Stealth line. The Tornado speakers are voiced similarly to AlNiCo speakers, unlocking their full tone potential. The Tornado 100 is an evenly-balanced speaker: clear, smooth, and well-defined with a solid, powerful bass range. Excellent dynamic range and headroom make the Tornado Classic 100 eminently versatile, from clean to crunch and lead tones. It is designed to suit open back, closed back, and ported cabinets.
Speaker - Jensen® MOD®, 12", MOD12-35, 35W
The Mod 12-35 is a 12" ferrite speaker with 35 watts of power. Straightforward tone with low end focus. When presented with overdrive distortion, it has a straightforward fuzz voice.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Ceramic, 15", C15N, 50W
The Blackface era sibling of the P15N is a powerful, open sounding speaker with a cutting presence on the full range of frequencies. The C15N is very efficient and delivers dynamic, high-headroom and punchy tone from bass to trebles. It is the first-choice speaker for many pedal steel and blues players. It is very commonly found in Pro® and Vibrolux® amps in the ‘60s and is used in the low frequency drum of the Leslie® 122 and 147 amplifiers.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Ceramic, 15", C15K, 100W
The C15K is the contemporary version of the C15N and offers one of the fullest sounding tones in the entire range. With powerful basses, rich in the whole midrange and smooth but extended in the treble range, the C15K is a first choice for traditional jazz players, as well as for fusion and roots rock styles.
Speaker - Celestion, 12", Vintage 30, 60W
The Vintage 30 features enormously detailed and complex overtones, a warm low-end, a famously rich vocal mid-range and a beautifully detailed top-end. Used singly to reveal the complexities in hand-wired boutique amps, or in quartets for a wonderfully intricate vintage 30 crunch, the Vintage 30 sound has been captured on thousands of recordings from a diverse range of notable players. Presented with overdrive distortion, it displays a crisp crunch.
Speaker - Celestion, 8", Ceramic Eight 15, 15W
The Eight 15 is ideal for upgrading your bedroom blaster with authentic British tone. Well-balanced mids and highs complement a surprisingly meaty bottom end - it's just about the biggest sounding eight inch speaker we've ever heard!
Bell Cover - Jensen®, for Alnico R and Q Type Speakers
For use on the Jensen P-A-P8R, P-A-P10R, P-A-P10R-FEN, P-A-P12R, P-A10Q and P-A-P12Q. Jensen bell covers are a throwback to the style of classic Jensen speakers from the 1950s and '60s that can complete the look of a vintage or vintage-inspired amplifier.
Speaker - Eminence® Patriot, 12", Cannabis Rex, 50W
American lead/rhythm guitar 12" speaker. Clean and full, with lots of body and sparkle. Smokey smooth with high-end definition.
Speaker - Celestion, 10", G10 Alnico Gold, 40W
The G10 Gold is the ultimate 10" speaker, blending unmistakable Alnico class with a rich low-end, creamy midrange and vintage chiming top-end. Springy, warm, revealing and highly expressive, it can be used singly or in pairs to add a classy sheen to any amp, or in a 4x10 configuration for higher volume depth, warmth and shimmer, with less of the boom associated with 4x12 cabinets.
Speaker - Jensen® MOD®, 12", MOD12-50, 50W
The Mod 12-50 is a 12" ferrite speaker with 50 watts of power. Warm, well balanced tone with low end focus. It responds to overdrive distortion with a rich smooth crunch and bright lead-voice fuzz.
Speaker - Jensen® Jets, 10", Tornado Classic, 100W
Like its 12” version, the Tornado 10 is remarkably versatile, with evenly balanced tone, excellent articulation, and a detailed, dynamic response with a hint of a very musical, sweet dynamic compression. The powerful Neodymium magnet and the 2” voice coil allow for 100W of power handling in a featherlight weight of just 1.7kgs (3.75lbs)
Speaker - Eminence® Bass, 10", Legend BP102, 200W
Bass guitar 10" speaker, 4 ohm. Recommended for professional bass guitar applications in a sealed or vented enclosure. Works well in single or multi driver designs.
Speaker - Celestion, 12", G12M Greenback, 25W
The G12M Greenback has evolved over the decades but still retains its essential, sought-after tone. This version exhibits all the classic G12M characteristics but is voiced with additional broad mid-range attack and restrained top-end to give a forward, punchy attitude to chords and a searing lead tone without fizz. With its well-controlled low-end it can be used singly in low-powered amps, or in multiples for high-power rock heads. It's an ideal speaker to bring drive and definition to modern high gain amps. Very similar to its heritage cousin, this one has more aggression with clean and overdrive signals.
Speaker - Eminence® Patriot, 12", Swamp Thang, 150W
Lead/rhythm guitar 12" speaker, 8 or 16 ohm. Very powerful, thick and chunky tone. Very touch sensitive with good sustain. Awesome bottom end.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Alnico, 10", P10R for Fender®, 25W, 8Ω
Not a strict reissue, the P10R-F was born as a special edition of the P10R, developed in cooperation with Fender®, for the Custom Shop ’57 BandMasterä and the 20th Anniversary Vibro-Kingä amps. By means of a different cone membrane, the P10R-F has a warmer, ‘aged’ tone, and breaks up in a sweet, progressive manner. A very unique speaker for true Tone-Connoiseurs.
Speaker - Jensen® Jets, 12", Tornado Stealth 65, 65W
Few speakers speak ‘classic rock’ like the Neodymium powered Tornado Stealth 65. Sharing a similar 1 ¾” voice coil design with the Nighthawk, it delivers vintage and modern rock tones with ease and authority. With a well-controlled top end, a typical British-voiced midrange and fat, warm bass range, the Tornado Stealth 65 is an ideal choice for classic flavored rock tones. Very easy to drive for any amplifier, it allows even the smaller sized open back combo amps to rock with bigger-than-life tones.
Speaker - Celestion, 12", G12M-65 Creamback, 65W
The G12M Creamback is perhaps the definitive vintage Celestion ceramic magnet guitar speaker. Developed in the mid-sixties, it was quickly adopted by players like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Page, who typified the louder and more aggressive blues rock playing styles that came to characterize that era.The G12M-65 Creamback produces the familiar woody G12M tone, but handles greater power making it ideally suited for today's amps, when a vintage tone is desired. The increased power handling brings with it low end grunt complementing the warm and vocal mid range, crunchy upper- mids and sweet, refined highs.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Ceramic, 12", C12R, 25W, 8Ω
Typically used in the lower powered 12” amps for studio or practice, the C12R is a clear sounding, sparkling speaker, very sensitive to the character of amplifier. When paired with a stout, rich and warm electronic design it can do wonders. Ampeg® Jets and Reverberockets are just some of the most revered amps that carried C12R as their factory choice.
Recone Kit - Celestion, for G12M and G12H Anniversary
Original Celestion Guitar Speaker Recone Kit. For 12" Celestion Classic Series G12H Anniversary Edition (30W) P-A-G12H-8 and G12M Greenback (25W) P-A-G12M-8. Not for Heritage Series or Creamback Series.
Speaker - Celestion, 10", Vintage G10V, 60W
A worthy successor to the Vintage 10, the G10 Vintage is a 10" speaker with bags of attitude. Using powerful ceramic magnets and the same voice coil design as the Vintage 30, the G10 packs an impressive punch with its 60W power handling. With the fast response of a 10" but with the strong and creamy vocal tones of a 12", the G10 is the ideal choice to add depth to hollow-sounding amps, or for players who want to get humbucker-type girth from single-coils. Can be used singly to add vocal warmth to small valve combos, or in quartets for a weightier but still lively attack.
Speaker - Eminence®, 12", Legend 1258, 75W, 8Ω
Lead/rhythm guitar 12" speaker. Vintage American tone with tight lows and warm, smooth mids and highs. Strong upper mid emphasis and extended highs.
Speaker - Jensen® Jets, 12", Falcon, 50W
The Falcon 12 is a mid-power, rich and fat sounding speaker. Very smooth in the top end, rounded in the midrange, it delivers exceptional bass depth and power for its power rating. The secret lies in its proprietary, green cone membrane, the only seamed cone in the Jet Series which is an integral element of the pronounced bass response. The Falcon is very suitable to low/medium output power stages with its ability of making even small amplifiers sound bigger.
