Jensen Speakers is pleased to introduce the Falcon 8, an 8”, 30W Ceramic guitar speaker in the Jet Series. The Falcon 8, the first 8” speaker in the Jensen Jet series, features a seamed cone, driven by a 25mm (1”) copper-wound voice coil with an Epotex former for higher power handling, and a ceramic magnet. The Falcon 8 delivers a true, rich, classic guitar speaker tone with the right amount of openness.
The tone of the Falcon 8 is surprisingly strong and bold for an 8”, offering a classic well-balanced tone but with a powerful bass range, well-balanced by a natural, vocal midrange, and an extended treble response. With its fast response, the Falcon 8 is an excellent speaker for tube combos of either vintage or modern inspiration, delivering a bold, strong response that will give voice to the amplifier tone in a big and brilliant fashion. The Falcon 8 is also well suited as an upgrade for small solid-state and digital modeling amplifiers, for its balanced, detailed top end response and ability to accurately translate the details of digital effects.
The Jensen Falcon line is characterized by the natural green cone membrane that delivers a “bigger than life” bass response and warm, full-bodied tone. The old-school building technique used, commonly referred to as a “seamed cone”, increases the mass and the rigidity of the membrane, emphasizing the lower midrange and bass response. This method was quite common in vintage-style, small-size speakers in order to grant a fuller tone.
