    Great in a vintage Champ. Brisk and lively, wonderful breakup.

    This speaker made my Silverface Champ come alive. I’ve never tried an alnico speaker before and I’m so happy I did. Turn it up to 10 and it puts out some tasty blues tones. Back the amp down to 7-8 and use some drive/fuzz pedals to get ruthless rock tones at levels that keep my neighbors from knocking. Thanks Weber for making such great speakers. This is the second speaker I’ve purchased from Weber and will definitely be buying more for my other amps!

    I’ve tried a few other speakers in the 5f1 and this one is by far my favorite! It helps balance the natural tone of the amp a bit so you can hear more detail.

    The old original Fender Tweed Champs from the 1950s have extra holes drilled in the chassis from the factory for the output transformer. You simply remove the 2 small screws and relocate the output transformer to the other side of the chassis and you can fit any large 8" speaker in the amp now. I have the 8A125 in an old Champ and it’s incredible. You can also angle the Output transformer and the screw that holds the circuit board on the amp is in the perfect location to have the 2nd screw installed for the OT if you want to angle it on the chassis. There are several mounting options that don’t require drilling of any kind. Pull the vintage Champ chassis and relocate your output transformer, any speaker will fit.

    Replaced the stock 40 year old 8" speaker in my Champ, and I can already hear the difference! The flabby bass is gone, and I can hear loads of clarity in notes and chords. Before, I was never able to turn the volume past 7 without the tones becoming muddled. Now I can really run it loud. The later breakup in the 8S model also gives you more headroom in the cleans. This speaker transformed my Champ into a tone machine, from Blues to Funk to Rock. It’s also a perfect fit for the stock Champ chassis, with no clearance issues or issues with the speaker holes not lining up. Easy drop in replacement, and worth ever dollar.
