    Hello!
    I am inching up on buying a set of 12 inch speakers to fill a Silvertone 1484 speaker cabinet. The original C12Q speakers need to be reconed and I am eager to overhaul the heads and test them. I have listed my options below. They reflect my desire to keep the expense at a reasonable level and avoid using 75 watt speakers to replace 35 watt speakers. If you have a recommendation, please share it with us. Thanks!

    1) Jensen Mod 12-35 pair $104 plus tax/shipping

    2) Jensen Mod 12-50 pair $120 plus tax and shipping

    3) Weber Sig12C pair $110 plus tax and shipping

    4) Weber Sig 12A pair $140 plus tax and shipping

    5) Mix of Weber Sig 12A/Sig 12C pair $125 plus shipping

    6) Jensen C12Q pair $137 plus tax and shipping

    Use the depth of your pocket to gauge the quality. Nothing more needed.

    Well I checked my pockets and ordered a set of Eminence Chinese made speakers from Ebay. I have used them in the past for various Silvertone amps and they seemed more than adequate. They are model number EGTR-S1012 speakers 8 ohms and 35 watts each. The price for a pair of them was around $66 shipping and tax included. I think the least expensive option I had check out before buying these was around that much for one speaker (tax and shipping not included). IMG_3974.JPG IMG_3975.JPG IMG_3976.JPG
