Bass Speakers

The new Jensen® Bass-series speakers were developed by combining the technical knowledge and passion of countless musicians with SICA’s R&D department’s 35+ years of experience. The result is a selection of speakers with the best in acoustics and technical performance from which every bassist can find one that meets his/her musical tastes.

Smooth Sound speakers are extremely clean and round with superb headroom. Equipped with neodymium magnets and aluminium baskets, they offer great linear excursion and dynamics. They are ideal for modern styles where extended low end is required. Neodymium magnets offer a 50% reduction in weight guaranteeing very light systems. The proprietary aluminium basket was specially designed to avoid sound wave reflections on the rear side of the cone, thereby allowing for faster and better cooling of both the voice coil and the air moved by it.

Punch Sound speakers offer great dynamics and super-fast response, giving the player an extremely solid bass sound. Equipped with ferrite magnets and steel baskets, they are ideal for classic styles where a clean, tight and bright sound is required.

Jensen® Bass-series speakers are capable of great excursions, generating high SPL at low frequencies without pneumatic compression; the sound does not change as SPL increases.

Jensen® Bass speakers can work at very high SPL for long periods of time and without power compression; the SPL of the cabinet does not decrease when working at full power.

The dynamic performance and balance of the electro-magnetic parameters results in deep low frequencies with absolutely unprecedented low levels of distortion and with very high dynamics.

To handle massive power and allow for a low temperature of the coil wire during intensive use, a 2.5” (65 mm) voice coil is used; this also helps the nominal impedance to remain constant, avoiding power compression. The water-proof and damping paint protects the cone from moisture and dampens its vibrations at mid-high frequencies. A wide area of overlapped glue between the suspension and the cone greatly reduces the cone break up. The flat spider allows perfect symmetrical movement and constant mechanical compliance even at high excursions. The cone suspension has asymmetrical waves to compensate for the lack of linearity of the excursion. Both the voice coil and the cone have decompression holes to eliminate the pneumatic compressions usually present in speakers with great excursions.

Once again, Jensen® and SICA have developed a new innovative approach in design and continue to supply products that allow the musician to find their desired tone.

The Jensen® Bass-series speakers are available in two distinct categories giving the musician multiple options.
