Well, since last fall, I've being looking to find a 5 watt amp that wouldn't break the bank. I've looked at a lot of Fender 5 watt amps. I hesitate because it seems the first thing owners do upgrade the speaker and or tubes at additional cost. I had some Tele partscasters I was listing for sale to help bare the costs. I was contacted by a buyer about a trade for a Crate 5v, 5 watt amp. I did a quick check on the Net to get some reviews. I'm seems people love or hate them. We hooked up the Tele had had to his amp, seemed a bit too much treble not enough bass, anyhow we made a straight swap. The first thing I did was disconnect the 30 watt 8 ohm speaker and I connected it to the speaker in my Champion 50 xl which has a Celestion Midnight 60 watt 16 ohm speaker. What a difference! 100 % better tone, nice high and great bottom end. I'm looking at replacing the speaker in the Crate with an Eminence 1058 10 " speaker. One question I have to ask since the ohms are different 8-16 will it hurt the amp or speaker. while I wait to get a new one. Thanks.
