I am very impressed with these speakers. Currently I am using them in a Late 70's Peavy 212 Classic. The sound is very close to a Fender twin, bright and crisp. They really do sound like a vintage speaker. They could use a little more low end, but then that would take something away from the vintage sound. But if you play a lot of blues or rock a billy, I don't know if you could find a better speaker.

I have this speaker in a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe that I use primarily with a funk band and for the open mic night I host. The clean tone is totally the Fender sound everybody wants, but it breaks up incredibly quickly and would be unusable in a band situation. Probably my biggest gripe though is that the speaker just coats everything in mids. I have tried everything and it's there to stay! This, in my opinion, makes it unusable for lots of situations. I would say if you're a jazzer, this is the speaker for you. If you play in an R&B group this is perfect. But if you want to have a tone that you can mold for whatever you're playing, this will not suffice.

      Comments about Jensen C12N 50W 12" Replacement Speaker:

      I can't believe how much of a bad reputation this speaker gets online, it's absolutely fantastic. I used this as a replacement in my Deluxe Reverb and I love it, it has all the characteristics of classic blackface sounds heard in recordings from the past. It's tight in the bass, has a bright high end and fairly transparent mid-range, but those descriptions alone don't do justice to the authentic and lively tone this speaker gives. This was like a hand in glove for my amp, not only that but the quality was absolutely spot on, the solder joints were absolutely perfect, the cone & construction as well were essentially flawless.

      Jensen is the way for Fender amps, Eminence, Weber, Celestion are all okay, but none of them do what Jensen does, and that's vintage Fender tone.

      Disappointed

      By Anthony

      from Baltimore, MD

      Comments about Jensen C12N 50W 12" Replacement Speaker:

      Bought this for a vintage 2x12 Bandmaster cab. Very disappointed. Just missing that Blackface vibe. Ended up replacing these with Eminence Swamp Thang and Texas Heat. Much happier now. Tried it in 2x12 closed back cab and 1x12 open back. Neither worked for me.

          Every amp/combo I have ever owned has the speaker replaced w/Jensens. They sound great after they break-in. I always run two together but not of the same size. It's usually a 12" and a 15". That combination gets very nice results. Both being Jensen Speakers. I've been using Jensen speakers for 35+ years with very good results.

            I put these in a Frontman 212R and it is close to my old 70's Twin. These speakers added warmth, clarity and low end punch I've been looking for. I play clean with some reverb and love the tone.

            GREAT SPEAKERS!

            By Frank-PYE1h

            from Arizona

            Comments about Jensen C12N 50W 12" Replacement Speaker:

            If you like Fender cleans then Jensen old and new are simply the best sounding speakers there are and for the price you just can't do any better. Warm bright and articulate, with enough midrange to cut through and then some. SRV tones all the way with these and a tube screamer!
            Jensen has always made excellent speakers of highest quality and these are no different.
            Jensen has the best value out there for vintage sounding amp speakers. Nothing sounds like Fender like Jensen!

            Jensen C12N - Perfect with an Egnater Tweaker 15

            By Ed Migliaccio

            from NY

            Comments about Jensen C12N 50W 12" Replacement Speaker:

            I played the fender blues jr. nos with this speaker in it. It sounded great. I played the egnater tweaker too, and was impressed with the versatility of the amp. In the end I decided to go with the Tweaker with the Jensen C12N I put in a cab I had, and I'm glad I did. It seems to get the Fender Blues JR tones as well as a lot of other tones. I was on the Morgan Amplification site today, and noticed that the $1800 Morgan PR12 uses one too. If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me. The perfect speaker for 15 watt head.

            Replacement speaker for Premier B-160 tube amp.

            By James James Shaver

            from South Georgia

            Comments about Jensen C12N 50W 12" Replacement Speaker:

            Was exactly what I was expecting, quality products made by a quality company.
            Looked at many speakers, then went with what came in the amp long ago. The Premier B-160 came equiped with a Jensen so... Great sound, clear, clean, but really gets the bluesy rasp when the tube a pushed.
            Top notch, what you'd expect in a Jensen

            This is it !!!

            By Hugh Ragsdale

            from Zephyrhills

            Comments about Jensen C12N 50W 12" Replacement Speaker:

            Better than any mod. Better than any tube swap. This speaker breathed life into my Blues Junior in an unbelievable way. I thought my amp was decent to begin with, but I knew it could be better. When I plugged this bad boy in the clouds opened up and I heard angels singing! I now know what people mean when they say it sounds like a blanket was lifted off the amp with this speaker change. I have been chasing that SRV sound for many years. This speaker provided that clean, transparent spank I have always wanted... even before it was broke in. DO NOT HESITATE... I repeat... DO NOT HESITATE to buy this speaker! You will thank me!!!
