The Nighthawk – together with its Neo sibling, the Tornado Stealth 65 – is the only Jensen speaker fit with a 44mm (1 ¾”) voice coil. We selected this unique voice coil size as it is one of the key factors for a true rock-oriented tonal character. The Nighthawk lends itself greatly to any kind of classic and modern rock including focused, bright cleans, pushed crunch chords and singing lead tones.
