I bought a P12R and put it into a vintage Fender Deluxe
Reverb amp. Really made a huge difference in tone for the amp. My pair of C10Q's in an open back cabinet produces the best tone around the block. You can't beat them!.

The new Jensen speakers are awesome. I have been playing most of my 32 years with Jensen speakers. The new ones offer a lot of choices in shaping the sounds of my amps! Keep up the good work.
Upon a recommendation from another jukebox collector, I purchased two C12Q speakers and installed them in my 1967 Seeburg jukebox. They sound terrific, much like the originals! Exact fit, and excellent tonal qualities for a vintage jukebox.
I bought two Jensen Mod 10-50's to put in an old 3x10 guitar cabinet. Do they ever sound killer! I'm running a SSH Strat through an Orange Tiny Terror into the cab; what an incredible combination it turned out to be! Crunchy and grungy, just how I like it. These speakers are awesome!
I purchased a C10Q for a handmade pine practice amp cabinet to go with a high gain low wattage head. I couldn’t be happier with the way the C10Q sounds with the amp. This speaker is the voice of pure rock n’ roll.
I’ve modified a 1971 Bogen 10watt class A tube PA amp, now I’m putting the cabinet together. The thing sounds great with the P10R. I love the sound, the speaker is definitely what I wanted for this. I play an Electric mandolin, this is a big improvement.
I am pleased to say that my choice of a Jensen P10R and a P12R Alnico speaker return the 44 year old Gibson GA-30RVT to its formal glory. The Jensen Vintage speakers give a very rich and warm sound, exactly what I was looking for, Thank You!
I've been playing guitar for 42 years, and have been playing in bands for 32 years. I bought several Jensen C10R speakers for two Fender Princeton Reverbs, one Fender Princeton, and one Fender Pro Jr. I have gigged with all of these amps. This speaker makes a 12 watt Fender Princeton Reverb loud enough to gig with. The C10R sounds much better than many of those high dollar boutique speakers I've tried. The C10R was very full sounding right out of the box. It took all of my amps to a different level. Clean or distorted - it sounds very even without a hint of harshness. Don't let the small magnet fool you - this speaker takes low guitar notes without a problem. The smaller magnet also makes the amp easier to transport.
The Jensen name speaks for itself – Quality!! What else can I say?!!
Picked up a White model 80 amp at a swapmeet, it had tubes in the wrong sockets and a junky no-name modern speaker. Didn't know quite what it was at the time, but figured anything made in Fullerton might have a Fender link. I replaced the filter caps (saving the old ones) and installed tubes from my NOS stash. The final touch was ordering a Jensen P8R speaker. It's a great-sounding amp for harp, lap steel, and my Oscar Schmidt electric dobro.
Well, finally my P12R fried on my 1955 Fender Deluxe. I had a gig so I put in a new P12Q. The amp has opened up more than I expected. My amp tech commented that he had to place the (57) at fifteen degree off axis to compensate for the increase in volume. I usually carry a Mesa Boogie Studio 22 with a 90 watt Black Shadow as a backup amp, but it doesn't look like I'll need it. You guys Rock!!
I bought 4 C10Qs for my 70's Fender Super reverb amp..and I couldn't be more delighted with the quality and sound these things produce..they really seem to suit this amp well..My old amp sounds better than ever! Thanks Jensen!
I used three 10" Jensen 35W Mod speakers to build my son a 3x10 bass cabinet. He's used it extensively over the last three years, and it continues to perform well. The band he is in, The Policy, would no doubt say that Jensens Rock!
I think the NEO10-100's are the greatest sounding speakers I could possibly have picked for my 66 Vibrolux (Don't worry, I still have the original speakers). I have every speaker imaginable around my studio and have tried them all. With this amp and also a THD Univalve and a Bivalve, the NEO 10-100 speakers just sing. Chimey, clear, articulate. They are super. I liked them so much I rebuilt my 68 Twin and put two 12-100s in it. I can't say enough about these speakers. They are very, very efficient so even though they are 100 watt speakers making it a 200 watt cabinet, I'm only pushing them with 15 watts from the Univalve or 30 watts from the Bivalve or Vibrolux. They don't need the power to sound good. Todd's advice was right on the money. Plus they are light having the Neodymium magnets. These are the speakers I always record with.
I've used the Mods. Love the 12 incher. Hope to be able to use more in the future.
Jensen Neo speakers have killer tone and are super lightweight. Maybe that's why several boutique amp makers use them. I've had mine for over a year now and since they're rated at 100 watts RMS, they can handle just about any amp application. One of the best all around speakers on the market today. You owe it to yourself to check one out!
I repaced the speakers in my vibrolux reverb 1968 model and sounds like it did when I bought it if not better.
Through a period of playing with a very loud country band, I found the opportunity to purchase additional Jensen speakers and settled on the Jensen C10Q model, using 2 -25 watt models and 2 -35 watt models (which really tightens up the low end). The tone of these speakers with the Bassman combo is too good to be chance alone. They are spectacular with Strats, Teles and my '83 Ibanez AM-205 Artist with humbuckers. Bell-like highs and harmonic grind is not lip-service for these speakers...they deliver consistently satisfying tone every day. When this amp hits the cusp of overdrive(4-5), it's a glorious tone that has a wetness that really brings out the nuances, especially if you are using fingers on the strings. The Jensens are voiced very specifically for the tonal range of any guitar I use. Country, Jazz, Blues, Funk and Rock are all well-served by Jensen quality and mystique.
I hope the Jensen engineers never mess with a good thing! You guys got it right with this design! Don't change anything! Please! Thank you Jensen!
I purchased 4 Jensen Mod 10" 50 watt speakers (4 ohms) to build a 4x10 bass cabinet.. These really pumped out the sound and never distorted, nice clear tight punchy bass. The real surprise was when I used my Mesa Heartbreaker head for my guitar! WOW! I usually use a 4x12 Eminence cab, but these Mods REALLY sounded better. Again, nice definition, just the right amount of breakup when driven hard, very articulate. I now recommend the Mods to everyone! Great tone and quality at an even better price.
...though some may scratch their heads- I recently popped a pair of Neo 12-100's into my 50 watt Marshall JCM 800 combo...thinking the lighter speakers would be worth the tonal tradeoff (I'm a busy NYC guitarist with a walkup apartment)...guess what...no tradeoff, except haulin' gear is easier!
