    Just acquired this all original 1965 Bassman cabinet. No MFG ID on the 12" speakers except for these numbers. Was wondering if anyone could identify them. The speakers are 8 ohm and the cab is 4 ohm. On the cone is written WHF-5526.

    Got the old Vox head too.

    Looks like an Oxford 12T6 to me. Great speakers!

    I was thinking Oxford or Utah, but don't know numbers that well. Any date codes on any of the numbers? Thank you!

    Interesting that Utah put 12T6 (an Oxford code) on their speaker! Wha?????

    My son did an online search for Utah speakers and it kept taking to Oxford/Utah. Are they related somehow?

    I dont think so, I've never heard they were at least, except Fender did use both.... so there's that relationship. But some amps came with either.
    The Oxford 12T6 is similar looking although slightly different. I have one here.
