Yeah, they're hardwired at the chassis end, which is fairly par for the course with SS combo amps.I'm pretty sure they're hardwired on the other end inside the chassis, there isn't a speaker jack like on a tube model.
I'm not sure, but I remember some discussion about Fender being weird about the warranty thing on these when you change speakers.
I could see Fender denying warranty coverage if someone swapped speakers with something with an incorrect impedance, but that's not unique to the Tonemaster amps.
It looks like the N12K comes in both 8 ohms and 16 ohms. So just choose replacements that match whatever yours has, and there should be no issue.
Besides, the blonde TM DRs & TRs use Celestion Neo G12 Creambacks instead of N12Ks. There's nothing proprietary/unique about these neo speakers that makes them specific to use with the TM amps - they were primarily only chosen because they are lighter weight.
