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® MOD®, 6", MOD6-15, 15W
The Mod 6-15 is a 6" ferrite speaker with 15 watts of power. It is a good upgrade for small practice amps.
Speaker - Jensen® MOD®, 10", MOD10-50, 50W
The Mod 10-50 is a 10" ferrite speaker with 50 watts of power. Warm, straightforward tone and tight bass frequencies. When presented with overdrive distortion, it exhibits a colorful fuzz edge.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Alnico, 10", P10R, 25W
The P10R is very important in the history of Jensen speakers. Its shimmering, yet throaty and vibrant tone is one of the signatures of the Tweed era and inspired the start-up of the British tones. It was the first speaker reissued by Jensen, presented to a restricted panel of partners at the 1999 Summer NAMM show. The P10R is the speaker that contributed to the magical tone of the 4x10 Bassman® Tweed amps, the 4x10 Super Tweed Amps and the equally mythical 3x10 Bandmaster® amps.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Ceramic, 6", C6V, 20W
The smallest ceramic guitar speaker in the Jensen range, the C6V has a smooth tone with rich midrange, excellent detail on the top end, and a convincing bass range for its size. The 20W power handling ensures good headroom, dynamics and articulation, even with mid and high gain tones.
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 - 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 - Eminence® Patriot, 6", 620H, 20W, 4 Ω
Lead/Rhythm 6" guitar speaker. Warm, full, and clean tone that will make a small, thin amp sound bigger and fatter.
Speaker - Eminence® American, 6", Alpha 6, 100W
American Standard Series 6" speaker. Recommended for professional audio mid-range applications in a sealed cabinet, or as a mid-bass in a vented satellite enclosure.
