Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

I also was a little disapointed with the "muddy" sound of my Bugera V5. NOT ANYMORE!!! This speaker opened up the sound totally. More highs, better mids and plenty of bass. And yes, even the reverb sounds better.If you are thinking of a small speaker upgrade this should do the trick. Also, the speedy service from Musicians Friend was a plus.

Might Be the Best 8 inch Replacement Speaker

By Rockabilly Bob

from Iowa

See all my reviews

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

I ordered my second Jensen C8R speaker in February 2011. Like the first one, it was installed in a second Vox Pathfinder with the same result as the first. Wonderful tone! This speaker adds a little increase in volume, but maybe the best benefit is the definition of notes, the clarity that this speaker adds. To start with, I'm a big fan of Vox Pathfinders, and this speaker makes a great amp even better.

Great for Bugera V5

By Alex Moon

from NY

See all my reviews

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

I think the Bugera V5 is one of the best buys out there for a small tube amp, but the original speaker is a bit dark. This Jensen C series speaker is a great choice to bring this litttle amp to life. Took 5 minutes to solder and its ready to rock. I recommend this upgrade to anyone using or thinking of getting the Bugera V5. BTW I mostly play telecasters and strats which sound great with the upgraded amp, but the added mid and high range from this speaker really helps cleanup the sound of humbuckers as well.
I've been using my Bugera V5 more lately and wanted better tone - this does the trick. Adds more balanced mids and highs. An easy low cost upgrade to a nice little amp.

Great Speaker

By Kayakman

Ask me a question

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

I bought this speaker to replace a Weber Vintage alnico speaker that was in a used Gibson GA-5 I purchased. The Weber sounded good with some guitars, but not with all. My Tele, for example, did not twang - it sounded too "fat". Great OD blues or jazz tones in this amp, but not much else. I ordered up this speaker, and I am glad I did. The overall tone of the amp did not change dramatically, but this speaker was far more "open" sounding than the Weber (less compressed?). Now all of my guitars sound great in this awesome little 8" combo, and I can make a lot more use of the guitar's tone knob (this is a volume only amp). I used to think alnico was always better, but no longer the case. This is my second Jensen ceramic speaker, and both are great. Go Jensen!

homemade taxi amp

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

I put this in a solid pine cab {12X12X6}with a Danelectro honeytone amp board. One my best ideas yet. This speaker is much fuller than I expected and breaks into crunch right when you want it, even with less than half a watt, it is loud and articulate.

Great Bugera V5 Replacement

By JGINSC

from SC

Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

Based on another review, I bought this as a replacement speaker for a Bugera Vintage 5 amp. I didn't like the sound of the Bugera speaker and the distortion was very muddy sounding. The Jensen is more dynamic sounding and the distortion is much better, in my opinion. There is even a noticeable improvement in the digital reverb. I was a little disappointed in the amp's sound but now I'm quite satisfied with its performance.

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    I bought this speaker to replace the stock speaker in the Bugera V5 amplifier.
    The Jensen C8R speaker improved the sound of the V5 more to my liking. It gave the V5 a brighter tone and overall made it a better sounding amp.

    This speaker makes a difference

    By Rockabilly Bob

    from Iowa

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    I've been playing small club gigs with a Pathfinder 15 for several years. I decided to try an upgrage with the Jensen C8R. It made a huge difference, adding a crisper overall tone, more volume and a more defined note articulation from chords to solo lines. If you are looking for an eight inch replacement speakers, this is a great buy.

    Great Speaker

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    I wanted to replace the speaker on my Fender Frontman 15 (MIM), a great little bedroom practice amp. The sound was OK but the Jensen really added a lot of depth and rounded out the sound nicely.

    1973 Silverface Champ

    By kylerprewitt

    from Newcastle, OK

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    I was looking for a replacement speaker to fit in my little Silverface and this Jensen speaker is amazing. My little champ is nearly twice as loud and the speaker doesn't break up near as much at low volumes. Turn past 6 or 7 and you can hear the natural british tone! This speaker really lets the amp talk, and its extremely affordable comparing to other speakers in its class.

    Bugera V5 replacement

    By Michael G.

    from AL

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    Bought a Bugera V5 and sound was dull and lifeless. As a comparison, my bass combo amp Line 6 LD15 was brighter. Just to make sure the speaker was the issue, I hooked one of my Infinity home speakers to the Bugera and treble returned. I looked at Webbers, etc. and the frequency response curve for upper end was the best with these. I had been using my Marshall MD15FX for practice but no more. Amazing...

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    Holy Cow! This C8R speaker just made my wimpy little 15 watt Crate practice amp into a MONSTER! I got lots more volume and no more distortion when I crank it up. And I also found tone I didn't know was there! Why didn't they build it this way to begin with! Do yourself a favor and buy one of these. You might be tempted to mothball your half-stack!

    Good for Valve Junior replacement

    By Keith Kostol

    from Oregon

    Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    Replaced the stock speaker in my stock valve junior with the C8r. Clean it sounds great, pretty sparkly (this is a dark sounding amp). Was a little harsh, but then after it broke in the highs softened a bit. With an overdriven tone, the speaker is very vintage sounding. Kinda fuzzy and crunchy. Made my amp sound better, and even a crappy yamaha GA-10 practice amp sounds good through it.
    Its a speaker
    Feels well built

      Improved Vox DA20

      By Driepinter

      from Toronto, Ontario

      Comments about Jensen C8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

      I've played through a Vox DA20 amp for a while but I was always somewhat disappointed with the quality of the sound quality. When listening to my amp through a set of good headphones I realized my amp could produce better sound than my speakers were able to represent.After some looking around and reading specs and reviews I settled on the jensen c8r and I don't regret it for a moment. The amp sounds a lot better allaround. The highs are nice and crisp and the lows don't sound muddy anymore. The range has greatly improved and it's like I've got a brand new amp altogether.

        I put this in a Vox AD15VT. The amp sounded good but I felt like it could do better. This speaker was a vast improvement. Physically it's heavier with a more solid chassis and deeper cone than the OEM one. Sonically it's a lot louder and has a lot more depth/detail than the original. I considered the alnico version but at about 3x the price I can't believe it's a better option - I'm hard pressed to find anything at all I don't like about this speaker for what it is.

          I bought one of these speakers to restore a '78 Vibro Champ. The amp now sounds better than my '66 (Blackface) Vibro Champ. I can say this is the right speaker for your Fender Champ. The only peer I have found is the original Fender speaker installed in the factory back in the day.

              Bought this to replace the speaker in my 1976 Fender 'silverface' Champ amplifier. Looks like a well made speaker, and the installation was a snap. Nice improvement in volume and clarity over old speaker too! I play a Tele through this amp and prefer clean and twangy sounds, and this speaker works nicely for that.
