i have a new fender blues deluxe.the speaker is a stock eminance"fender special design".it sounds a little better after breaking it in "about 50 hours".the amp itself seems very clean but i'm looking for a speaker to bring out the best in this amp,and jerry tone of course.i'm considering eminance commonwealth or cann rex,or something by weber.the amp is 40 watts.please help me out. should i consider some kind of jensen?i'm not considering jbl e120 because you can only get used ones.
I asked nearly the same exact question a ways back. Had a BDRI , thought (and still think) it was a totally sweet amp. I would have loved to keep it . But at the end of the day , I ended up with the whole SMS- 2x12 K120 route. And now there's no second guessing. Just something to consider . If you plan it out now , like really map out what it's gonna take to get to the grail, you'll save yourself tons of time and money in the long run . Like I said, just something to consider.
Anyway, if you're looking for new, I think the emi commonwealth has this "firmness" or "tightness" to it that sounds sweetly JBL jerryish.
But ,I bet at least 90% of the guys around these parts are using "used" speakers.. It's the beauty of eBay . A used K120 in good shape will run about 125 ish. If it sucks, you return it . If you are indeed searching for even close to Jer, or good clean fender-jbl tone in general , then it's a must have . Its in the top 5 of things you need to get in the ballpark. 2c
