The time had come to look at new speakers for my Fender Twin Reverb (this is a 135 watt Silverface Twin made in the 1970s). Originally there were a pair of Eminence Fender Special Design speakers, (one of which had been ripped and repaired). I saw a lot of information online suggesting that a Fender Twin Reverb combined with Jensen C12s is the true American sound, with conflicting views over whether which version (C12k or C12n) were the better tonal choice. The C12K with it's 100w rating seemed to make more sense for my amp anyway (had the amp been a 100w Twin Reverb I may have put more thought into the C12N).
I am very happy with how these speakers compare to the original Eminence speakers. These speakers really beef up the low end of the Fender Twin, while pushing the mids (and the low mids in particular) much more aggressively. The highs are a bit more subtle, however you still get the signature Fender 'sparkle' without too many issues. I do enjoy some heavily distorted riffing on the E string using the neck pickup of my strat then switching to some lead runs using the bridge pickup, and these speakers really respond to this change, providing 'the sound' that I had hoped for.
I have an 80's Fender concert which had a dull sounding Eminence speaker fitted in it. I recently tried the amp with a lower power Jensen extension speaker and it sounded awesome so I bought this. Straight out of the box it was a bit stiff/tight but after an hour or so it was starting to sound much closer to what I'm looking for and I'm sure that with a few more hours use it will get better and better. On the clean channel it is fairly crisp but full sounding while on the overdrive channel it stays crisp but not harsh and stays fairly tight on the bass end. It still sounds like a Fender which is exactly what I wanted. I tried a V30 in the amp too which sounded good for overdrive but not so good clean. The Jensen on the other hand seems to be good at both.
