Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Ceramic, 12", C12R, 25W, 8Ω
This product is currently out of stock and will be placed on backorder.
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.
Guitarist Description: Warm low and mid response with smooth/bright highs. When presented with overdrive distortion, it presents smooth crunch with low-end focus.
- Lows: Tight
- Mids: Firm
- Highs: Bright
- Overdrive: Crunchy

1 answers I have a 1970 s/f fender deluxe reverb. What is the replacement speaker? The Jensen 12R or 12Q?
Asked by Anonymous on June 30th, 2017.
Many of the older Deluxe's had Oxford's and not Jensen's. Either speaker will work and the C12Q is 10 watts louder at 35 watts.
1 answers I have a 1990s Peavey Bravo. (8 ohm, 25 watt) Which speaker is a better replacement -- C12N or C12R? Thanks
Asked by Anonymous on March 15th, 2018.
Typically you want to have a speaker that is higher in wattage than your amp. With that in mind, I would recommend the C12N.
1 answers I've read that it's recommended to use a speaker of a higher wattage than the amp it's in. Do I risk damaging the speaker if the wattages are equal? (25 watt amp with the 25 watt C12R.)
Asked by Anonymous on July 16th, 2022.
As a general rule, we advise doubling the wattage of the amp with the speaker. (example: a 50W speaker in a 25W amp) Playing a 25W amp with a 25W speaker in it at higher volumes could potentially damage the speaker.
