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® Jets, 12", Nighthawk, 75W
The Nighthawk – together with its Neo sibling, the Tornado Stealth 65 – is the only Jensen speaker fit with a 44mm (1 ¾”) voice coil. We selected this unique voice coil size as it is one of the key factors for a true rock-oriented tonal character. The Nighthawk lends itself greatly to any kind of classic and modern rock including focused, bright cleans, pushed crunch chords and singing lead tones.
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 - 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® Jets, 12", Blackbird, 100W
The Blackbird 12 is one of most revered speakers in the range. Not only does this AlNiCo guitar speaker have the highest (100W) power handling available, but it also offers the most refined tones. Powerful, warm bass range, balanced mids, sparkling highs, with both chime and smoothness. Excellent for the most high-end applications, where the details and the harmonic spread make a difference for the discerning users.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Alnico, 10", P10Q, 40W, 8 Ω
The high power 10” Alnico in the Vintage Series, the P10Q was used in a handful of beautifully sounding amps such as the Tweed Super, Brownface Super, and others. This speaks to the fierce tone of the P10Q, capable of great clarity, detailed tone with excellent trebles, and well supported by a solid mid and bass foundation.
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 - Eminence® American, 15", Delta 15, 400W
American Standard Series 15" speaker. Recommended for professional audio as a mid-bass or vocal wedge in a sealed enclosure. Also suitable as a mid-bass or woofer in vented enclosures.
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 - 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!
Speaker - Jensen® Jets, 12", Tornado Stealth 100, 100W
The Tornado Stealth 100 is the original Tornado 12, the first of the new generation of Neodymium speakers in the Jensen offering with an added stylish bell cover over the magnet. Possibly the most versatile Jensen speaker ever, it has clear, almost HD top end, well-balanced midrange and powerful bass end. It lends itself to a wide range of musical genres, with a smooth, never aggressive personality, from fast solo runs, to complex chordal harmonies, to soulful lead tones.
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.
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 - Jensen® Vintage Alnico, 12", P12N, 50W, no bell
The AlNiCo P12N is surely one of the most iconic Jensen speakers of the late ‘50s. Visually impressive because of the big bell cover on the magnet, it is the highest powered 12” speaker in the range. Among others, the P12N was used in the high-end amps of the time such as the Fender® Tweed Twin. Crystal clear in the treble range with transparent mids and powerful but tight bass, it is the “King of Clean Tones”.
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 - 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® 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 - Jensen® Jets, 12", Tornado Stealth 80, 80W
The Tornado Stealth 80 is the Neodymium counterpart of the ceramic powered Electric Lightning. The Stealth 80 is extremely efficient, with slightly scooped mids, and it shines in the cleanest as well as in the heaviest tonal applications. It delivers exceptional punch and attack, retaining all the clarity needed for palm-muted riffs and power chords, as well as crystal clear clean rhythm playing.
Speaker - Jensen® Jets, 10", Electric Lightning, 50W
The Electric Lightning 10 shines and shimmers with clean tones, because of its exceptional response on the upper frequencies. The midrange and bass may seem slightly subdued, yet the tonal balance is remarkably even. Capable of cutting through any mix, the Electric Lightning 10 delivers warmth, boldness and articulation.
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 - 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 - Celestion, 12", F12-X200, 200W, 8Ω
The F12-X200 is Celestion’s answer to the growing trend of full-range flat-response speakers. The F12-X200 provides a massive 200W power rating. Celestion’s decades of experience in speaker construction shines in this unique design that offers neutral voicing while maintaining the feel and response of a Celestion guitar speaker.
Speaker - Eminence® Patriot, 12", Red, White & Blues, 120W, 8Ω
Lead/rhythm guitar 12" American speaker. Nice tight low-end, smooth midrange and top end sparkle.
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 - Jensen® Vintage Neo, 12", N12K, 100W
The N12K was developed in conjunction with Fender® as the speaker for the new Fender® Tone Master™ Deluxe Reverb® and Twin Reverb®. It delivers the closest sound, character and dynamic feel of the classic Jensen C12K with half the weight, thanks to the exclusive Jensen Neodymium magnet design (the same magnet used in the Tornado series). The N12K delivers a warm, full bodied tone with remarkable headroom and just the right amount of brilliance and sparkle.
