The P12Q has a very warm, mid-focused bite with clear, bright highs. When presented with overdrive distortion the P12Q remains well-balanced.
The P12Q is excellent.
I've been playing guitar for nearly 50 years and designing and building speakers systems for musicians for more then 40 years. I bought a new Trace Elliot Bass amp a few years back that had a Jensen MOD12-70. It ended up in my Fender Deluxe, exactly the sound I've been searching for for years. Now I've got another MOD12-70 and P12Q, they make all other speakers sound muddy (no not Mr. Waters). All my amps are being changed to Jensen. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Well, finally my P12R fried on my 1955 Fender Deluxe. I had a gig so I put in a new P12Q. The amp has opened up more than I expected. My amp tech commented that he had to place the (57) at fifteen degree off axis to compensate for the increase in volume. I usually carry a Mesa Boogie Studio 22 with a 90 watt Black Shadow as a backup amp, but it doesn't look like I'll need it. You guys Rock!!
I recently fitted a Jensen P12Q into my Fender Blues Junior III Red Sparkle FSR and what a huge improvement over the standard speaker, which was a Celestion Greenback G12H which itself is a fine speaker but a bit bright and harsh compared to the P12Q which is much warmer and smoother in tone and breaks up just nice when driven.
Great speakers. Liked them so much I picked up a C12N, P12Q and MOD 12-50 to re-do three respective new amps to give them a more vintage tone.
