    Just curious: has anyone tried Celestion Golds in a tweed Bassman?

    if so, do they fit in the top row? There is so little space, because of the transformer and other amp parts, that it seems like almost nothing other than Jensen-type Alnico speakers can fit.

    I don't have a bassman, but I have a G10 Gold and I can tell you the depth of the speaker (mounting surface to back of magnet cover) is 5 3/8".

    Thanks! It seems to be more about the diameter of the magnet assembly. If it’s too wide, it won’t clear the side of the transformer.

    Thanks! Unfortunately, it looks like the original has a slightly different layout.

    The diameter of the magnet cover is 4 3/8”.
