Tone Chart

Overall cabinet wattage is equal to the sum of each individual speaker's power rating. For speaker longevity and health, Jensen recommends an overall cabinet wattage equal to about twice the amplifier's output wattage.
GUITARIST DESCRIPTION: Descriptions of tone are subjective and do not represent the only possible interpretation of sound heard from each speaker. Ultimately, the tone of a speaker is a product of many factors including the player, the listener, the instrument, the amp, the cabinet, effects and the room in which it is played. Genre of music for each speaker is purposely not mentioned due to the myriad tones generally used in each genre.
