    Looking for an upgrade for my old Peavey Rage 158. I used the 'teaching amp' in a pinch on a low-volume live date and it was pretty good. I decided to upgrade from the stock Peavey speaker. I had installed a 12" Mod in my late-70s Lab L3 with superb results, so the sale price made it a no-brainer. 15 watts has never sounded so big! I use it primarily for jazz but it does sound full and distinct with an Option 5 Overdrive II. The little amp has really opened up sonically.

    Not a good speaker

    I modded an amp to an old tweed champ type circuit, and built a custom cab for it. After reading the great reviews on this speaker, i gave it a shot.

    i was very dissapointed.

    I prefer a lot of headroom, and this speaker broke up VERY early. The speaker had very weak volume, and when it did get to rocking the bass was not there, and the highs were very brittle and ice picky. I ran the amp through another cab and the sound was much more balanced.

    I had the same brittle highs in a 12" Jensen that i had put into another tweed build. Fool me twice....

    I won't recommend Jensens, nor will i use them again. I'll be replacing this speaker with the Eminence 820H as soon it is released to market.

    Comments about Jensen MOD8-20 20W 8" Replacement Speaker:

    I bought 2 Mod8's and put them in a 2x8 cabinet.
    They have the clear, chiming Jensen sound, like the C8R, only rounder and less bright.
    I played them through my Fender Excelsior w/a Telecaster and they sound great. Very punchy. Breakup is nice and bluesy.
    I then plugged into my Vox 15VR w/a Les Paul and they sounded good there, too. Not muddy at all.
    I have a 4x8 cabinet and 4 of these would blast.
    I recommend these as a upgrade speaker and would pick them over the other eights on the market.
    Plus the price is supurb.

      Comments about Jensen MOD8-20 20W 8" Replacement Speaker:

      What a great little speaker. I used it to replace the damaged alnico Jensen in a 1964 National Studio 10 amp made by Valco. Think Page type sound. Anyway, the speaker is near perfect. It added quite a bit of volume to this amp, compared to the stock speaker when it was in ok shape.

      My only concern is that it is too good. It doesn't allow for the amp to break up until near max on the volume. But...that is easily remedied with a flick of the guitar's volume.

            Needed a replacement 8 inch 4-ohm speaker for a vintage Silvertone 1481 tube amp I needed to restore. This speaker was just the ticket! Original Alnico was shot (coil rubbing) and very inefficient. The Jenson MOD-8 was the most cost effective solution for this portion of the restore. Had the OPTX been able to produce a wider frequency response, I would have considered the Jensen CR8. But given the low-end nature of the original 1481 design, the MOD8 was the more-better solution.

              Installed as a replacement in my Bugera V5. This speaker is exactly the sound i was looking for. Plenty of bass with just the right amount of midrange and it increased the treble, which this amp needed badly.If your looking for a great rock and blues speaker you cannot go wrong with this Mod-8,especially for the price.

                I have a Bugera V5 tube amp,that sounded good but lacked the treble especially with lower watt settings. Although the Jensen had a smaller Magnet it still has decent bass and the mid and treble are perfect.It made this cheap amp sound like a boutique amp!

                    WOW! That may be all I need to say. I put one of these in my old Gibson GA-5 from the 50s and wow, it is a whole different amp. The tonal spectrum just opened up. The high end is so sparkly, chimey, clear, precise. And for this price, this is well worth it. I'm also going to try one in a Peavey Rage 158.
