    The Neo sounds great in a 5E3.

    The difference is really the power.
    I would choose the P12Q. That's what I have in my 5E3. I've tried the P12R with the 5E3 but in a different cab (a Tech 21 TM60 amp cab) and the result was bad. Too muddy and no definition... It works great with my modded Champ 600 thou!

    The difference between the P12R and the P12Q is that the P12R sounds like crap. The inherent bassiness of the 5E3 helps to make up for its deficiencies, but it's still lacking. I think Jensen went way too far trying to capture the "old-timey" 1950s sound with this speaker, and they wound up with something that sounds like your clock radio--thin and nasal.

    Isn't this same conversation happening in another thread?

    The Weber 12A125 and 12A150 are both terrific in a 5E3. Never tried a Sig 12.
