A tone machine for small amps

By Gerry

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

Wow, does this 8" speaker ever transform the little Fender Vibro Champ XT. These two are just a perfect match. The Jensen has more low end and a bit more efficiency. Really brings out the deep, smooth tube sound when saturated by the little champ amp. I don't understand why Fender didn't just use this speaker to begin with. Highly recommended as an upgrade speaker

I have a vintage Dean Markley amp. The Jensen speaker made it sound like the day I took it out of the box.

Such an awesome upgrade!

By John Reagan

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

This was a darn good upgrade for my little Bugera V5 tube amp. This speaker is made for instruments/amplifiers and a good ear can really hear it. The amp wasn't bad before but it just sounds so good now I've been playing it more than my Vox Valvetronix. This speaker made a noticeable difference in tone and a big difference in sound clarity from a small amp. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Pretty good and affordable swap in a very affordable amp

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

Replaced the stock speaker in my monoprice 5 watt tube combo amp with this Jenson. Upon opening the amp I discovered the existing speaker was actually floating in the cabinet and not mounted. So I guess this will not really be an apples to apples comparison.

I noticed a few things. Keep in mind this is not an a to b comparison, and in the time between switching the speaker out, my brain probably can't remember sound all that well. There is probably a little confirmation bias involved. If I was less lazy I would actually do a recording comparison.

- low end felt more defined and controlled
- speaker sounded a bit less nasal
- seemed to be slightly louder and generated feedback a bit more easily

I now have the monoprice amp permanently set up and ready to record... and have used it in a few of my recordings.

Adequate but not particularly inspiring....

By MICHAEL REED

from Fairbanks, AK

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

I used this speaker to replace a Emminence G1 that was in my 72 Silverface Champ when I bought it. Not sure why I replaced it, other than I wanted something that was closer to the original specs and felt the current speaker was lacking in fullness. The speaker sounds good and is doing the job, but it does not have the character and liveliness the G1 had (at least with its current hours toward break in). Maybe I am expecting too much out of a 8 inch speaker, but I was hoping to have a little more edge than this speaker delivered. I have put about 20 hours on it before writing a review just in case playing time changed things a bit. So far, it sounds about the same as it did out of the box. I think the speaker is very adequate and is a solid choice if you are hoping for stock performance in a small practice amp. Having said that, it is not likely not impress you if you are looking to improve the tone of an already functional amp.

Champ clone sound.

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

I put this in a 5 watt Champ clone and I was very pleasantly pleased with the sound. I have been a proponent of the vintage Alnico magnet speakers in my other amps , but this sounds great.

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    I researched the web for the best replacement speaker for a vintage Fender Champ amp and the Jensen C8R is the one! The amp sounds amazing and it really is impressive when mic'd through a PA. From clean to dirty, the amp tone rocks. The original speaker is now safely tucked away for posterity. Can't wait for the speaker to become fully broken in from use.

    Wonderful upgrade to my Fender 15R

    By Kevin

    from Pennsylvania

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    I have a Fender 15R amplifier in another cabinet. It always sounded nice, but I had a few bucks and decided to purchase a speaker. It made my guitar come alive. I can now use the 5 way switch and tone knobs on my guitar and create sounds I never heard before. What a wonderful speaker this Jensen C8R is.
