10" Blackbird 40
A new take on the classic AlNiCo tone, with a bolder voice for vintage and modern players
Jensen Loudspeakers is pleased to announce the release of the 10” Jensen Blackbird 40. The 10” Blackbird 40 is the smaller sibling of the 12 Blackbird 40, famous for its exclusive “Reinforced AlNiCo” magnet, and the 1 ¾” (32mm) copper-wound voice coil.
The power rating of this smaller speaker mirrors the larger 12” at 40W, with a very similar efficiency - delivering more than 96dB with ease. The tonal qualities of this speaker are also very close; the 10” Blackbird 40 is distinctively vintage-voiced, with a warm-yet-solid bass range, the classic sparkle and chime that are associated with AlNiCo speakers, and all the immediacy and forwardness that are expected from a high quality 10” speaker.
Jensen put a herculean effort into designing and fine-tuning the 10” Blackbird 40, and the results are nothing short of astonishing.
