not worth it

By Fred-H3QN0

Comments about Jensen P8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

i bought this to replace the stock Peavey speaker in my little Valve King Royal 8 thinking it would be a dramatic improvement. While it is a quality speaker, i don't hear enough difference to warrant the $90 for it. With speakers this size, you're never going to get any real punch, depth of tone or beefy weight to your sound. If you've literally blown your speaker or damaged it in some other fashion then i'd suggest going with a cheaper Jensen speaker or other brand rather than thinking spending more will turn your little practice amp into a tone beast.

      Comments about Jensen P8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

      I don't post many reviews but I felt that I should let people know how good this speaker sounds. I ordered this to install in a 5 watt '68 Fender Champ,replacing the original Oxford that just can't handle volume or bass. I put the P8R into an old,rough Peavey Rage 12 watt solid state amp just to break it in and I can't believe how good the Rage sounds with this alnico speaker in it! the Peavey distortion still sounds crummy but the clean sounds are fantastic! if this speaker makes that cheap old Peavey sound great just imagine what it'll do for your vintage tube amp! I've used the 8" Jensen MOD and it's ok...bassy and tough but dark...this alnico blows it away! the high end is just beautiful! just trust the reviews and spend the money! you will not be sorry! just make sure you get the right one...4 or 8 ohms.

          Comments about Jensen P8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

          Restoring and/or hot-rodding vintage and worthwhile modern amps can be a rewarding electronic and mechanical pastime. If you're inclined to try it, there's plenty of information (and, occasionally, misinformation) on the Internet to guide you. Of all the things one can do to tweak an amp, swapping out a flimsy OEM motor for a prime driver is the safest place to start and produces the most significant improvements. Why? With the exception of top-shelf, hand-wired 'hot glass' amps, gain section electronics/thermionics are easily and inexpensively mass produced. So is particle-board carpentry. A really good motor, on the other hand, is a significant cost item and, obviously, the best place for a name brand holding company (e.g. Fender, Vox) to cut costs. If you doubt this, find a clean Pignose PG-20 and bolt in an Eminence Patriot 620H (or drop a Patriot 820H into a Fender Mustang) and let your own ears decide. The following speakers are perennial hot-rodding favorites: Eminence hemp-cones for mellow and rich blues/jazz, Jensen MOD for pop and rock/death, and Jensen Vintage Alnico (like this P8R) for 'that authentic Tweed sound'). With solid-state gain sections (a valve in the pre-amp section doesn't matter), go with 4-ohms. For hot-glass, make sure the motor's impedance matches the gain section output transformer's spec (if that info isn't stamped on the back of the OEM motor, it's probably available somewhere on the Web). Rock on!

            Comments about Jensen P8R 25W 8" Replacement Speaker:

            The P8R is a high quality speaker. It sounds good clean, but it also has that wonderful distortion tone when the volume is increased. I put it in a DIY Champ and you could enjoy the distortion tone all day. It is not harsh at all. iPhone playing tunes through the Champ comes out nice. Not like a modern amp, but nice!

            Needed to replace the speaker in my old 1959 Gibson Skylark GA-5. Found this gem which was an exact replacement - same label even. It fit perfectly, and now the amp sounds awesome again!

                One of the few speakers worthy to put in a 45 year old Fender Vibro Champ. I put one of these in my silverface Vibro (with Torres mod) and the amp really sings. Just spend the money and give your amp the speaker it deserves.
