VOR V12A-25: 12 inch Alnico Guitar Speaker
We (Midwest Speaker) have been working with an independent manufacturer, to develop a number of specialty pieces, ranging from home HIFI to musical instrument speakers. They are one of the largest independent manufacturer of all types of drivers for all types of speaker designers all over the world. We went to them and requested a Jensen P12R copy and this is what they created. This driver is truly exceptional! It far surpasses the tonal quality of the reissue Jensen P12R and is by far, the best driver I have heard under $150. It’s a bit on the bright side and had to dial back the trebel a bit, but once I did, I was rewarded with the sweetest sound I have heard from a newly manufactured driver under $150.
This style of driver, I usually rebuild myself, out of reclaimed Zenith drivers and the like from old hifi consoles, to get the quality of tone I like, but this one does it right out off the assembly line, which by the way, is all hand built in the USA.
This is a great replacement for the Jensen P12R or any 12″ guitar speaker.
-Classic, yet very modern sound
-Excellent string separation
-Cone breakup that comes later than one would expect from this type of driver
-Outstanding high end clarity for that clean Fender chime and ring, yet at high gain drive, maintains that clarity
-This driver is by far the best for lower output configurations because of it’s outstanding clarity at all gain levels, blazing leads and surf alike!
