Replaces Chicago Jensen P12N and other late 50's vintage AlNiCo 12's.
12", 40oz AlNiCo magnet, 25 watts, 1-1/2" voice coil, curved seam cone.
Brighter, smooth breakup, aggressive, punchy, loud, curved seam inverted rib cone similar to one version of the original Chicago Jensen P12N.
Compressed and fattened at higher volumes.
This is the speaker that is used in the Fender Reissue '57 Low Power Tweed Twin.
I had a 12a150a installed by Mike Marsh in a 5e3 Deluxe he built for me about 4 years ago.
A really great build which no doubt sounded the better for this amazing speaker being installed!
It gives the Deluxe a really full blooded, big sound. More than enough volume to gig with, even with a fairly loud drummer.
With this speaker in place the sound is really vintage correct I believe.
Warm, responsive with plenty of lush low end. Highly recommended!
