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 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 C15K is the contemporary version of the C15N and offers one of the fullest sounding tones in the entire range.

Speaker - Celestion, 15", G15V-100 Fullback, 100W
With a larger cone delivering an extended low end response, the 100-watt Fullback has a big, deep voice, delivering smooth and expressive tones seemingly without effort. While retaining our classic, harmonically complex and finely detailed mid-range, the larger 15" cone of the Fullback shifts this characteristic down a register. Clean sounds are warm and expressive, revealing and enhancing the qualities of your amp and guitar without unnecessary colouration. Overdrive sounds are complex and musical; push harder for a weighty, contralto growl, with a softer, warmer mid-range.

One of the first speakers ever used in a guitar amplifier, the P15N was loaded in the earliest Fender Bassman® and Bandmaster® amps, setting the milestone for those classic tones.

Speaker - Eminence® Signature, 15", Double-T 15, 300W, 4Ω
Special Order Item“The new Double-T 15 is everything I’ve always wanted a 15” speaker to be. The main reason I moved away from 15” speakers was the lack of “punch” that they typically have in comparison to a great 12” speaker. I feel it’s a marriage of all of my favorite characteristics from both 12” and 15” speaker sizes.” – Travis Toy / Session Artist / Touring Professional.
