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.
JensenJensen Loudspeakers have a long history. Founded in 1927 by Peter Jensen, one of the co-inventors of the loudspeaker, Jensen began producing commercial amplifier loudspeakers in the 1940s.
Jensen JetsSharing the same sense of innovation as the original Jensen musical instrument speakers, the Jensen Jet is the newest addition to the Jensen line. By listening to what players wanted in a speaker and utilizing the newest materials Jensen continues to transform the music industry by making speakers with unparalleled tone. Pushing sonic boundaries far beyond the Vintage Jensen, there is a Jet speaker available for any style.

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 - 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.
