User Reviews

I have a 1966 Fender Deluxe Reverb who's speaker gave up the ghost. Knowing that Jensen had reissues of their vintage speakers, I purchased a C12Q for my amp. When I fired that baby up with the new speaker it was like a trip back in time. The tone was tight, focused and warm, all the things a great Fender Deluxe should be and for the price, I'm not afraid to get after it a little.

Here it is - Installed a Jensen Vintage Ceramic C12Q last year in a 5e3 kit amp. I tried other speakers to include small plug magnet alnicos. But the sound of the C12Q works the best for all volume levels of this amp. I tried the more powerfull ceramics and they sounded muddy at lower to moderate volumes. The light weight alnicos sounded too thin and had no punchy bass. IMO The C12Q is just right for all volumes and it realy handles the higher volume crunch very well: No flubby bass, and no crackling. It took me about 6 months to break it in at loud volumes, and now the speaker sounds a lot smoother than before and can handle higher volumes better. Some think that Alnicos are the way to go with a 5e3, but the C12Q does better than more expensive speakers in a 5e3.

I load combos 2x12 & 4x12 cabs with used, vintage Jensens. Currently, I'm running a Sovtek MIG100H into a 4x12 cabinet loaded with four 35-watters. Great tone & response..nuff said

Upon a recommendation from another jukebox collector, I purchased two C12Q speakers and installed them in my 1967 Seeburg jukebox. They sound terrific, much like the originals! Exact fit, and excellent tonal qualities for a vintage jukebox.
