A real workhorse, heavy on the mids with a solid, straightforward tone. When presented with overdrive distortion it powers through with lows that are bold and heavy.

User Reviews

I actually ended up purchasing a pair of C12K's. I installed them in my Fender Twin and absolutely love the sound. I was looking for speakers that wouldn't break up quickly because I like to have a lot of headroom in order to get some jazz tone and also make good use of my effects pedals. These speakers fit the bill and if I ever need to replace them I'm sure I'd just buy another pair as long as they're available

I totally rebuilt a '72 Fender Twin and added a little lower end to it by installing some C12K's. Mostly I play a new Benedetto Benny and/or a '71 Les Paul thru it, and it rocks the house. Even the other "players" in the audience have to comment on the great "tone" I get. I love it, and being in 4 groups I use it 3 - 5 times a week.
