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® 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 - Eminence® Patriot, 6", 620H, 20W
Lead/Rhythm 6" guitar speaker. Warm, full, and clean tone that will make a small, thin amp sound bigger and fatter.
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.
