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, 10", C10R, 25W, 8Ω
Developed as the ceramic version of the P10R, for low-powered studio amps, the C10R is revered for having been the speaker of the Blackface Princeton®, the Princeton Reverb® and many others. The combination of the warm sounding circuit of the Princeton and the bright, colorful tone of the C10R delivers magical tones in any recording session.
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, 10", C10Q, 35W
Adopted primarily in the Vibrolux® and Vibroverb® amps of the Brownface and Blackface era, the C10Q is a very easy to drive speaker that breaks up nicely with straightforward biting character. It was also very common in many Silvertone® and Valco® amps. It loves the 2x10 configuration and the floating baffles.
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® Jets, 10", Falcon, 40W, Ferrite
A very successful and versatile 10”, the Falcon 10 adds a new dimension of openness to the classic, fat and warm tone of its 12” version. The seamed cone membrane delivers an unexpected bass response for its 10” size and it is balanced perfectly with its sweet, yet cutting and present high end.
Speaker - Jensen® MOD®, 10", MOD10-35, 35W
The Mod 10-35 is a 10" ferrite speaker with 35 watts of power. Warm, straightforward tone and tight bass frequencies. When presented with overdrive distortion, it takes on a gritty edge.
Speaker - Jensen® Vintage Alnico, 10", P10R for Fender®, 25W, 8Ω
Not a strict reissue, the P10R-F was born as a special edition of the P10R, developed in cooperation with Fender®, for the Custom Shop ’57 BandMasterä and the 20th Anniversary Vibro-Kingä amps. By means of a different cone membrane, the P10R-F has a warmer, ‘aged’ tone, and breaks up in a sweet, progressive manner. A very unique speaker for true Tone-Connoiseurs.
Speaker - Celestion, 10", G10M Greenback, 30W
The 10" that thinks it's a 12". This speaker was developed to recapture the legendary sound of Celestion's 1970s 10s - a 10" speaker with a surprisingly meaty tone. Low in output but with the weighty low-end balance of a 12", the G10 Greenback features a complex, creamy mid-range and smooth, vintage top-end. Presented with overdrive distortion, it displays a well balanced crunch.
Speaker - Jensen® Jets, 10", Tornado Classic, 100W
Like its 12” version, the Tornado 10 is remarkably versatile, with evenly balanced tone, excellent articulation, and a detailed, dynamic response with a hint of a very musical, sweet dynamic compression. The powerful Neodymium magnet and the 2” voice coil allow for 100W of power handling in a featherlight weight of just 1.7kgs (3.75lbs)
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 - Jensen® Vintage Alnico, 10", P10Q, 40W, 8 Ω
The high power 10” Alnico in the Vintage Series, the P10Q was used in a handful of beautifully sounding amps such as the Tweed Super, Brownface Super, and others. This speaks to the fierce tone of the P10Q, capable of great clarity, detailed tone with excellent trebles, and well supported by a solid mid and bass foundation.
Speaker - Eminence® Bass, 10", Basslite S2010, 150W, 8Ω
Neodymium 10" speaker, 8 ohm. Recommended for bass guitar. Ideal in vented 1X, 2X, and 4 X10 enclosures.
Speaker - Eminence® Patriot, 10", Lil' Buddy, 50W, 8Ω
Lead/rhythm guitar 10" speaker with hemp cone. A clean and full tone, slow to break-up, but crunchy when driven. Smoother and less defined than many 10" guitar speakers.
Speaker - Celestion, 10", G10 Alnico Gold, 40W
The G10 Gold is the ultimate 10" speaker, blending unmistakable Alnico class with a rich low-end, creamy midrange and vintage chiming top-end. Springy, warm, revealing and highly expressive, it can be used singly or in pairs to add a classy sheen to any amp, or in a 4x10 configuration for higher volume depth, warmth and shimmer, with less of the boom associated with 4x12 cabinets.
Speaker - Eminence®, 10", GA10-SC64, 20W, 8Ω, Ferrite
Tones of 1964 still ring true in this vintage voiced 10 inch speaker by amp guru George Alessandro. Very balanced with dynamic character, this ceramic 10 inch speaker offers tight, punchy tone with nice warmth, richness, and sparkling highs.

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.
Speaker - Jensen® MOD®, 10", MOD10-70, 70W, 8Ω
The Mod 10-70 is a 10" ferrite speaker with 70 watts of power. Thick, straightforward tone and fat bass frequencies. It exhibits a bass heavy, dirty grit when presented with overdrive distortion.
Speaker - Jensen Punch Bass, 10", BP10/150, 150W, 8Ω
The Punch BP 10/150 is a 10" ferrite speaker with 150 watts of power. Punch Sound speakers offer great dynamics and super-fast response, giving the player an extremely solid bass sound. Equipped with ferrite magnets and steel baskets, they are ideal for classic styles where a clean, tight and bright sound is required. The 10'' bass speaker provides good projection with minimal effort especially in a two or four 10'' cabinet. The sound is powerful in either a single or multi speaker combination.
Speaker - Celestion, 10", Vintage G10, 60W
A worthy successor to the Vintage 10, the G10 Vintage is a 10" speaker with bags of attitude. Using powerful ceramic magnets and the same voice coil design as the Vintage 30, the G10 packs an impressive punch with its 60W power handling. With the fast response of a 10" but with the strong and creamy vocal tones of a 12", the G10 is the ideal choice to add depth to hollow-sounding amps, or for players who want to get humbucker-type girth from single-coils. Can be used singly to add vocal warmth to small valve combos, or in quartets for a weightier but still lively attack.
Speaker - Eminence American, 10", Delta 10, 350W, 8Ω
Recommended for professional audio and bass guitar applications as a woofer/mid-bass or midrange in vented monitors, satellites and multi-way enclosures.

Speaker - Eminence® Redcoat, 10", Ramrod, 75W, 8Ω
Lead/rhythm guitar 10" British speaker. Very loud, gutsy, and meaty tone with singing highs and nice, clear overtones
