    I'll check that out. I used a replacement speaker as a place holder and boxed the original , preparing to ship it to Orange County, that then found they had stopped coning . Its been years now....

    Who is the best at Re coning a Jensen

    Is it the speaker repair pros noted above. Yes the voice coil is the variable. Different materials , different weights , different performance. So sure All I know is its a 4 ohm. I'll see if I can pull a model number off of it. Its on the frame , haven't looked at it in a while, its packed up...

    Who is the best at Re coning a Jensen

    This cone is toast. Its already been , "repaired". I've had access to all the best advice, but the voice coil has a rub as well. Its time to go. Its out of an early 50s GA50 T , its the 8" the 12" has already been coned. The 8" rolled on for a while but then developed the rub. So it gots ta get...

    Who is the best at Re coning a Jensen

    I have no doubt its doable , I'm a tech. I would need the kit. I know that at one time Jensen kits were NOS only, it was a trick to find them. Has that changed ?

    TV Front/Wide Panel- would these cabs sound different or weight more?

    I've got a TV front Deluxe in pine , very light . Stick with pine and it will be as light as you could hope for.

    Vibrasonic speaker swap..

    Used this on a little gig last night , I think the Faital has a bit too much high end for the sound I'm looking for. More a PA application or Bass guitar perhaps..... Usable but not Ideal...

    What's your rig? You get 1 amp, 1 guitar, and 1 pedal.

    Custom Vibrasonic, heavily modded GB10 with built in humbuckers and delay pedal.

    Vibrasonic speaker swap..

    Installed that Faital Pro today. Interesting , brighter than the Emi EVO clone for sure ! Its going to change as I get some hours on it. I'll drag it out to a gig , see how it does. Its at least 10 pounds lighter than the Emi... Feels much more manageable. I can one hand it now. Its down to...

    Vibrasonic speaker swap..

    I've only got one Neo an Emi in a Deluxe. Its running fine, but its a low power amp that doesn't see a ton of use. Think I should be OK with the Neo . I'm not blasting away. But I like the idea of a stout power capacity. I would think that my program volume would peak above the 150 watt rating...

    Vibrasonic speaker swap..

    I'm using the guitar channel. The steel channel sounds like my twin to me , the guitar side has a bit more vibe . I could see that A/B ing the channels could be a good move on a pop gig. Could get me very different sounds for rhythm guitar. It may be that the thing that I like about this amp...

    Thanks for the reply. The link brought me to their 15"s thanks. Very helpful I'm tempted by the Faital Pro. It doesn't make sense cause it could take 2 gigs to pay for it, but this amp , for some reason rings my bell. It must be the combination of the 4 6L6 output tubes and that 15" speaker ...

    I had thought that the Eminence Kappalite would be a choice its rated for 450 watts , I think they do a 4 ohm . That might be a way to go. I also have a message out to Webber to see if they do one that would work.

    Vibrasonic speaker swap..

    Hello Fender fanatics: I've got a Zinky era Vibrasonic. I like it as is but it weighs 81 Lbs. So I'm looking for a 15" neo that would have the right character. Guess this stock speaker is a JBL clone. Hate to change it, but I would not mind not carrying that magnet around. What Neo ? Is...
