Dating vintage jensen speakers

So, to sum things up: • C series = low cost, more clean headroom, better articulation at volume, higher volume per watt, and is a brighter speaker • P series = higher cost, warmer “cremier” tone, earlier breakup, better "bluesy" sounding speaker • R, Q, N, K Suffixes = Use the R's for lower cost applications, use the N or K series for maximum wattage and headroom applications, and the Q for applications in between.

I don't stock the Celestion Super 8 15-watt speaker. It would take 5 to 9-business days to get it into my shop.

Another excellent speaker to consider would be the , which is an affordable classic sounding 15-watt, 20-oz ceramic magnet speaker that also provides a warm and crunchy tone, with early breakup, but has a bit more aggressive attack and definition at volume.

Q: What are the wiring options for 16-ohm speakers?

Q: Should I match my amp’s impedance with the speakers?

As you progress through the versions (R to K), power handling increases, typically 25-watts for the R, 35-watts for the Q, 50-watts for the N, and 100-watts for the K.

More importantly to players, the tone and speaker response is also affected.

Q: What 12” & 8” speakers would you recommend for Harp?

Q: What is the Tone Tubby "EC”(Eric Clapton) voice coil? Q: Can you compare the Tone Tubby Al Ni Co 12, Weber Blue Dog and Celestoin Blue Speakers? However, there are some general tone characteristics associated with each of these types of magnets, which you should care about (tone type, that is).

The C8R has more definition and clarity at volume that allows you to better cut through other band members.
