      Comments about Jensen MOD12-70 70W 12" Replacement Speaker:

      These are some of the best, if not THE best general use guitar speakers available today. I am not even joking.

      In any cab or combo, they tighten up low end, tame midrange bark, and let the glassy shimmery highs through without the ice pick ear bleeding highs. I have no idea why these arent the talk of the town. O well, makes me happy that I can get them for 1/2 the price of speakers that they blow out of the water.

      They do feel light and kind of cheap-ish, but dont let that scare you. The first pair I got was in 2004, and they still get used daily and gigged weekly, and they are still in fine working order.

            Comments about Jensen MOD12-70 70W 12" Replacement Speaker:

            This speaker solved an issue with an excessively boomy cabinet. Low end is dramatically more tame than my Celestion 10 inch greenback. Had tried Mod series speakers in the past and did not like them at all but read positive reviews on this particular model. Amplifier is now singing and growling, plus I can palm mute on the bass strings without it turning into a giant wall of mush. I am very surprised but I really like the speaker :-)

            Comments about Jensen MOD12-70 70W 12" Replacement Speaker:

            I chose this model speaker to re-load a 4x12 cabinet. I have used Jensen in the past and I was always happy with their tone. Jensen's have their own special tone. Not like Celestions, not JBL, not Peavey, not EV, not Fender not Eminence. Not like any other guitar speaker. They have their own "special" tone that I like.

            The main problem I had with this speaker is that the mounting holes don't have standard spacing like other speakers I tried. I tried other speakers to see if their holes lined up with the mounting board, and they did. The Jensen speakers did not.(Maybe because the Mods are made in Italy, I don't know.) I wanted to use the Mod Jensen's so I had to drill all new mounting holes. It was a pain and took some time but it was worth it to have the Jensen speakers instead of the stock speakers.

            The overall improvement in tone was tremendous.
            It seems now my 50 watt Marshall head can really be heard. Not only the dynamics of the amp but the subtle tone changes can finely be heard.

            The bottom line: Worth the extra time mounting to get that true "Jensen" tone!

                Picked up a Behringer GMX212 at a pawnshop that had 2x Jensen JCH12/70, one of which had voicecoil issues. Replaced both with these and am quite pleased with them.

                I did an a/b with a celestion seventy/80, and found it was a little louder,less bright, better bottom, smoother mids. at half the price. The mod speakers are the best buy for guitar amps. If you are looking for more volume check out the Eminence patriot series. Mine was purchased from Musicians friend, the best online musical instrument dealer.

                  Comments about Jensen MOD12-70 70W 12" Replacement Speaker:

                  I dont normally write product reviews but I feel as though these speakers deserve it. I have hand built several 212 speaker cabinets with blue marvel peaveys,eminence patriot series...etc and I have to admit that these 70w Jensen MOD speakers not only sound better but the value is considerable compared to higer wattage and more expensive speakers.Im using them in an open back configuration and they sound amazing. I play mostly classic rock, "hair" metal and 90s alternative with a strat through low watt tube amps. The sound is somewhat between American voicing and British with the perfect level of bass response. Do yourself a favor and try these out before you spend 20 to 40+ more on "high end" name brands.You wont regret it.

                  I wanted a speaker that would sound good with the two tube heads I own.One is 33 watts the other 5 watts.The sound is really clear and full.I will maybe get another one to put in my gutted ampeg VT22 cabinet.

                  I replaced the flabby sounding stock celestion speakers in a vox 4-12 cabinet with these. BIG improvement. very true reproduction with a touch of the woody jensen sound. I wont go back to celestion now. Im dying to try the "vintage" jensen ceramics. nothing can touch the Jensen AlNico's. Very nice sounding stuff.

                  mine is in a hot rod deluxe the stock speaker was too bassy and I didnt need all that bass cause I have a bass player so this helped with that and it made harmonics jump out on the overdrive more than the stock speaker

                  I built two 4x12 cabs on a budget and man these things were really great. Very loud, tight and crisp. They took everything I could dish at them. Nice round bass response too. I was running these with a Randall RG100ES head and it was perfect for what I needed. Will def. buy more of these.
